Project Status: 27 December 2006
The precipitation event affecting the American River Basin since yesterday is winding down. Accumulations in the upper part of the basin are up to about 1.5 to 2 inches of liquid. In the lee of the Sierra crest, there have been accumulations of around 0.5 to 0.75 of liquid. The lower part of the basin and the Sacramento area have received about 0.75 to 1 inch of rain. Conditions will be drying out this evening and a ridge building in for dry weather over the next several days. The next chance for a significant precipitation event in our domain appears to be around 3 January.
SMART-R: still on schedule for repairs to be complete by Thursday (tomorrow) afternoon
Surface Met: Software bug for web plots of precipitation at Norden, Onion Creek and Duncan Peak has been corrected. Wet bulb temperature is now being displayed for several sites (Colfax, Big Bend, Blue Canyon, Foresthill, Truckee and Cazadero)
ALPS Workstations: Workstation(s) for Sacramento are almost ready to ship (next day or two). Installation can take place next week.
