The scattered snow showers continued Monday with steady snow Monday night. As of early Tuesday morning, the mountain has picked up a foot of new snow, with 6 inches at the base. The snow continues to fall as of Tuesday morning.
Scattered snow showers are possible into Tuesday night. It’s a cold day Tuesday with highs in the 20s at the base and teens up top, and lighter winds. A nice but cold powder day! It’s hard to say where snow showers will fall Tuesday, but we could see an additional 2-6 inches on the mountain and 1-3 inches at the base.
Wednesday – Monday:
High pressure builds back in with a drier pattern again Wednesday through Sunday. It starts out cold with highs in the 20s at the base and teens up top Wednesday. Then 30s at the base and 20s up top Thu – Fri, and then 40s & 30s for the weekend. We should see mostly sunny skies each day. Gusty northwest winds are possibly up top by Thursday afternoon ahead of a dry cold front.
Sunday night into Monday the forecast models are at odds over the track of the next storm. Some models bring the storm far enough south for more snow reaching the northern Sierra and the Tahoe Basin. Others keep it to our north. We’ll continue to watch the trends and update as we get closer.
The first week of March the door could be open to weak/moderate systems tracking into northern CA. The latest forecast model runs show a chance for a few systems. We’ll continue to watch the trends on that as well.
Looking way out there, the long-range models continue to suggest a better chance for wetter storms the 2nd week of March. Fingers crossed…
