Thursday – Saturday:
We stay in a dry pattern through the weekend. Mostly sunny with highs into the 50s on the mountain and near 60 degrees at the base. Sunday ridgetop winds could be gusting 40-50+ mph from the southwest.
A trough moves through Monday with highs dropping into the 40s and even 30s up top above 8500 ft. The forecast models continue to pull back on precipitation chances with the splitting system. Snow levels may also stay at to above 8000 ft.
We could see clouds & sun with a few scattered rain/snow showers Monday into Monday evening. Only a coating of snow at best up top above the snow line. Gusty southwest winds of 50-60+ mph up top, possibly affecting some upper mountain lifts.
Tuesday – Wednesday:
Sunny skies return Tuesday into Wednesday. Highs in the 50s at the base and 40s up top. Lighter winds expected on both days.
Another trough is forecast to dig into the West Coast later next week. That could allow a storm to move into northern CA between Thursday and the weekend. We will continue to watch the trends and fine-tune the details on any storms as we get closer.
