Know about the Fujita Scale for tornadoes? Now we have one for atmospheric rivers - read

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Will the upcoming atmospheric river this week melt the snow in that elevation belt? 🤔
