Winds crank up to over 100 mph over the ridgetops Thursday so expect some lift closures. Snow continues to fall through the day and into Thursday night before ending by early Friday morning. Highs in the 20s.
No changes to the forecast. Still expecting 10-15 inches at the base and 15-25 inches on the mountain Thursday on top of the 1 inch reported early Thursday morning.
Friday the sun comes out and the winds come down with gusts up to 30+ mph up top. It’s cold with highs only in the 20s on the mountain to near 30 degrees at the base. It should be a great powder day!
The next storm is still on track to move in sometime Saturday afternoon/evening and could last into Monday evening before ending. This storm will also tap a decent amount of moisture off of the Pacific ocean. Ridgetop winds will increase again on Saturday with gusts up to 50-60+ mph from the SW into Sunday.
Snow of varying intensity could continue into Monday morning before ending. Highs in the 20s on the mountain and low 30s at the base through Monday. We could see an additional 1-2 feet of snow at the base and 2-3 feet on the mountain by Monday morning.
Monday the sun may come out by afternoon with lighter winds making for another good powder day like Friday.
The long-range models continue to suggest that we could see quieter weather Tuesday through at least next Thursday the 8th.
Then they suggest that the storm track could return to CA around the 9th, but confidence is low in the pattern as we go towards mid-month. We’ll continue to watch the trends as we get closer.
