Status: 9DEC07 (Tuesday)
A cold but weak storm will cross the HMT project area strating tomorrow evening and ending Thursday night. All of the models are predicting well less than 1 inch of liquid equivalent from this storm, which might end up being largely scattered snow flurries. This QPF is not impressive enough for an IOP. Therefore, we will settle for letting the unattended HMT instruments monitor this storm. Thus, no IOP and no crew deployments for now. Instead, we will save our resources for much bigger storms that may develop in the next several weeks.
However, the 10-day outlook continues to be predominantly dry. Currently, the next possibility for a storm appears to be late next week. Meanwhile, we will continue to monitor the forecasts on the daily conference calls.
