Mission Ridge snow
« on: 01/02/17, 02:03 PM »

Mission Ridge is reporting 39 inches of new snow in the past day, but most other sites only got moderate amounts (Baker nothing, Crystal 6 inches). The nearby Trough snotel shows similar amounts of new snow as Mission Ridge (about 34 inches), but even Blewett Pass (which is only a few miles away) only shows about 8 inches new. Most other east side sites seem to have got barely anything.

What kind of weather phenomenon leads to this crazy disparity???

I'll quote I think it was Garth Ferber and give you my guess..."favorable orographics".
