6″ fell at the base and 8″ of new snow up top fell over the past 24 hours through early Wednesday morning. Scattered showers continue,
Scattered snow showers along with some peeks of sun are possible for Wednesday. Cold with highs in the 30s at the base and 20s up top. We could see a final 1-3″ of snow on the mountain.
Thursday – Saturday:
Thursday is still cold with highs in the 30s at the base and breezy northeast winds. But the sun should return through Friday. Friday the winds begin to turn back to the southwest and highs warm into the 40s.
Saturday we could see increasing winds and clouds by afternoon ahead of the next storm. The ridgetop winds could once again be gusting up to 80+ mph from the southwest by later in the day.
Rain could move in by evening from the next system with snow levels possibly staying above 8000 ft. into Sunday morning. We could see rain showers Sunday but we could also have a bit of a break. 1-3″ of wet snow is possible above 8000 ft. based on the latest model runs.
Sunday Night – Monday Storm:
Sunday night into Monday we could see a colder low move down the West Coast bringing in more moisture and colder air with falling snow levels to below the base. So we could see a decent snowfall on the mountain through Monday night. The latest model runs suggest 1-2 feet of snow by Tuesday morning.
It will become cold and windy again Monday with strong ridgetop winds. Highs in the 30s at the base and 20s up top. We’ll continue to update the details for this storm as we get closer.
Snow showers could linger into Tuesday. Then the forecast models diverge by next Wednesday. Some show another decent storm while others nudge the storm track to our north. We’ll continue to keep an eye on the long-range forecast trends.
