    Wow. Kill effort.
    That template could make for a forum of stickies for everywhere.
    Going somewhere - click and drop right into all the conditions.
    Got cumulative snow totals in there?

    Nice work. Not so Tahoe specific, and not that accurate after 3-5 days, but 16 day precipitation forecast every 12 hours - http://ggweather.com/loops/eta_12z_slp_1-5.htm

    And 10 day

    ...BECOMING WET AND UNSEASONABLY COOL DURING THE UPCOMING HOLIDAY
    WEEKEND..

    A MOIST AND UNSEASONABLY COOL PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM WILL MOVE INTO
    THE GREAT BASIN DURING THE LATTER HALF OF THE UPCOMING HOLIDAY
    WEEKEND. WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS CAN BE EXPECTED
    BEGINNING SATURDAY AFTERNOON ACROSS SOUTHERN UTAH...AS MONSOONAL
    MOISTURE SPREADS NORTHWARD INTO THE AREA. THIS MOISTURE WILL
    CONTINUE NORTH SATURDAY NIGHT...AND ENCOMPASS ALL OF UTAH AND
    SOUTHWEST WYOMING BY EARLY SUNDAY.

    AS THE PACIFIC STORM SYSTEM INTERACTS WITH THIS MOISTURE...SHOWERS
    AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME FAIRLY WIDESPREAD ACROSS
    THE REGION BY SUNDAY. SOME OF THESE STORMS MAY BECOME STRONG AT
    TIMES...AND BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL.

    MUCH COOLER AIR WILL FILTER INTO NORTHERN AND CENTRAL UTAH...ALONG
    WITH SOUTHWEST WYOMING DURING LABOR DAY...DROPPING SNOW LEVELS TO
    NEAR 10000 FEET. SOME ACCUMULATING SNOW CAN BE EXPECTED ABOVE THIS
    ELEVATION ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF NORTHERN UTAH. AS THIS
    SYSTEM MOVES EAST OF THE REGION MONDAY NIGHT...CLEAR SKIES MAY
    ALLOW TEMPERATURES TO FALL BELOW FREEZING ACROSS SOME NORTHERN
    UTAH VALLEYS.

    THOSE PLANNING OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES ACROSS NORTHERN UTAH DURING THE
    UPCOMING LABOR DAY WEEKEND ARE STRONGLY ENCOURAGED TO MONITOR THE
    WEATHER...AND BE PREPARED FOR WET CONDITIONS BEGINNING
    SUNDAY...AS WELL AS MUCH COOLER TEMPERATURES BY LABOR
    DAY...PARTICULARLY ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN.

    ANYONE PLANNING OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES ACROSS SOUTHERN
    UTAH...PARTICULARLY LOCATIONS PRONE TO FLASH FLOODING SUCH AS
    SLOT CANYONS AND SLICK ROCK AREAS...SHOULD BE AWARE THAT THE
    THREAT FOR FLASH FLOODING WILL BE ELEVATED THROUGHOUT THE WEEKEND.
    BE PREPARED TO TAKE ACTION SHOULD FLASH FLOODING DEVELOP.

    yeah this is sick. if there was one of these for every region in the "Snow Conditions and Weather" room it might actually get some traffique.

    Woke up this morning and the temp at my house was below 50 degrees for the first time in 4 months. It's getting colder and I added a few more maps so I thought this thread needed a bump!
