28 inches of snow fell on the upper mountain in the past 24 hours. That brings the 2-day storm total to 42 inches, and the 6-day total to 57 inches!
Thursday – Friday Storm:
The storm continues to stream snow the region Thursday into Thursday night and then ending Friday morning. Winds are gusty up top but should come down some today.
The atmospheric river of moisture that brought heavy snow Wednesday night will shift south again Thursday with light-moderate snow continuing. The snow will become lighter Thursday night as the storm moves inland with the snow ending Friday morning as the storm clears to the east.
We could see an additional 1-2+ feet of new snow on the mountain by Friday morning. That would bring storm totals to around 5-6 feet up top!
We should see drier weather Friday afternoon through the weekend and into Monday as the next storm stalls well to the north. Expecting mostly sunny skies, lighter winds, and highs in the 30s at the base and 20s on the upper mountain. A beautiful weekend to enjoy the new snow!
Monday – Tuesday Storm:
We could see partly sunny skies Monday morning with increasing clouds and wind by afternoon. Ridgetop winds increasing to 70+ mph.
The next storm moves into northern CA Monday afternoon/evening and could last into Tuesday night before clearing. We could see another round of moderate-heavy snow. Initial estimates are for another 1-2+ feet of new snow from this storm between Monday night and Tuesday night.
We may see a drier pattern build in starting around Wednesday through the end of next week. But some model runs suggest we could start to see some colder systems moved down from the north the 2nd week of February. More on that as we get closer.
