nohrsc snow models

Post by retired jerry » May 3rd, 2020, 9:32 am

there must be two different snow models

https://www.nohrsc.noaa.gov/interactive ... &js=1&uc=0

for example, shows snow on the badger creek trail. It's west of Wamic

http://adamschneider.net/hiking/snow_depth.html and https://www.fs.fed.us/r5/webmaps/Sierra ... lon=-121.7 shown no snow on the Badger Creek trail until you get right to Badger Lake, they must use the same data

Plus, a couple days ago the last two showed no snow anywhere - temporary glitch in the source of data. That's what clued me into the fact they use different data.

The last two under estimate the amount of snow

The first has a lousy map and scrolling - it's hard to figure out where you are

Very curious

Not to worry, I just use adamschneider and click usgs topo, and if I want to avoid major snow, wait for it to melt totally

Stupid mistake, thanks
