HMT personnel demonstrated the storm’s intensity and impacts using the unique observational network that HMT currently has in place across the region as well as other NOAA products. The team also fielded questions about the storm’s location, duration, and timing.
The storm was associated with an atmospheric river (AR, – see Fig. 1) that made landfall on February 7th. Over the course of several days, the AR dropped over 10 inches of rain in places (see Fig. 2) and provided much needed snow pack to the Sierra Nevada Range.
