The fast-moving system that moved through during the early morning hours dropped 3 inches of new snow on the mountain.
Saturday – Sunday:
Clearing with mostly sunny skies by late morning through the afternoon. Highs only into the 30s. Ridgetop winds still gusting to 70+ mph Saturday morning causing some upper mountain lift delays. The winds come down some through the afternoon but still gusting 40-50+ mph.
Sunday we should see mostly sunny skies with highs in the 30s on the upper mountain and 40s at the base. Ridgetop winds could still be a little gusty with southwest winds of 30-40+ mph up top.
Monday – Wednesday Storm:
Increasing clouds and winds Monday with snow showers possible starting in the morning. Gusty ridgetop winds with gusts of 60-70+ mph, possibly affecting some lifts. Highs only in the 30s at the base & 20s up top.
Low pressure will slowly make its way down the CA coast with snow showers possible through Wednesday night before clearing on Thursday. This is a cold system with highs only in the 30s through Wednesday at the base and 20s up top. The winds should be lighter for Tuesday & Wednesday.
The snow showers are expected to be fairly light through the period. Snowfall totals by Thursday morning may be around 6-10 inches at the base and 8-13 inches on the upper mountain.
We could see a drier pattern by the end of the week into next weekend with mostly sunny skies and warming temperatures. Then we could see a cooldown next Sunday into the week of the 15th with a weak system from the north possible.
The long-range models suggest the pattern could become more active again around the 18th. We will keep an eye on that and let you know.
