We still have strong northeast winds up top Friday morning, with some gusts up to 80+ mph. That may affect some upper mountain lifts. The winds drop through the day and should only be gusting 30-40 mph up top by later in the day. Mostly sunny skies with highs into the 40s.
We will see mostly sunny skies with temperatures warming into the 50s for the weekend. Lighter winds expected for the weekend. Winds pick up later on Sunday but strong gusts should hold off until after the mountain closes.
Monday – Tuesday:
A dry cold front moves through Monday. Mostly sunny skies are expected to continue, but we should cooldown with highs only in the 40s into Tuesday.
We could see ridgetop winds from the southwest gusting 60-70+ mph up top Monday which could affect a few upper mountain lifts. Then northeast winds for Tuesday gusting 30-40+ mph up top.
We should stay in a dry pattern through the end of next week. We will warm back up for the 2nd half of next week with lighter winds and highs into the 50s.
The long-range models continue to suggest we possibly transition back to a slightly more active pattern starting around Eastern Sunday the 4th through the week of the 5th. The next chance for precipitation may be Sunday the 4th. We will continue to watch the trends on that.
P.S. posts will shift to every other day until we get a storm into the 7-day window.
