Friday – Tuesday:
We are in a drier pattern through Tuesday. It’s still fairly cold still Friday with highs in the 30s at the base and 20s up top. Then warming a bit for the weekend with highs into the 40s at the base and 30s up top, and warming a bit more Mon – Tue with highs into the 50s at lake level and 40s up top.
We should see mostly sunny skies each day through Monday. Maybe a few clouds Tuesday as the active storm track is just to our north in the Pacific NW. The winds don’t look to be an issue right now, but it could be breezy up top.
Wednesday – Thursday Storm:
Starting around March 2nd-3rd the pattern is still forecast to begin to shift with a trough digging into the West allowing storms to track farther south into northern CA. The latest forecast model runs show a storm digging into the northern Sierra by Wednesday night into Thursday.
It’s still a bit far out to look at potential snowfall amounts. Right now the storm doesn’t look overly impressive and we could start with higher snow levels. But it could bring new snow to the mountain through Thurday, so we’ll continue to fine-tune the details as we get closer.
Additional weak systems could move through the region through the end of the 1st week of March.
Looking at the 2nd week of March, the long-range models continue to suggest the pattern could continue to evolve into a better pattern for storms. We’ll continue to watch the trends as we get closer.
