ArrowCreek Weather Station

February 23, 2010

Our weather station results are being used on TV! Reno KTVN Channel 2 local CBC station has ArrowCreek on their weather map. That’s us! 🙂 That’s because we are part of the NOAA volunteer weather network.

Don’t know if it will always be accessible but here is the weather from today on KTVN. ArrowCreek is on the map at about 3:15 minutes into it when he describes the Reno region. Yesterday’s broadcast on the web had ArrowCreek about 3:45 minutes into it, so I’d guess it should show up any time between 3 and 4 minutes into the weather.

Record setting snowfall in Reno and areas just to the north. 12″ at the airport as of 8 AM with as much as 24″ being reported from north valleys out to Silver Springs yet areas south such as Minden and South Lake Tahoe have not seen much. A very narrow band of moderate to heavy snow developed last evening and continues this morning. Winter Storm warning has now been continued until 7 PM this evening. The snow should begin to decrease late morning into the afternoon as this band moves south and east but areas within the snow band could experience several more inches this morning and during the early afternoon. Weak high pressure builds in for late today and Monday but enough moisture remains for scattered mountain snow showers and lots of clouds in the valleys.
Next chance of rain and snow will be late Tuesday into Wednesday as a Pacific systems moves towards the coast. Highs today in the low 40’s with 30’s at the lake.
