4 Inches of Fresh Snow and Cold Temperatures

Category: Weather

Snow Report:

The official report from up top is 4 inches and 2 inches at the base, Alpine is reporting 3 inches.  Temperatures are in the 20's this morning with the snow guns firing on the lower mountain.

Forecast:

The skies are clearing and winds are dying down, but still gusting to 50 mph up top.  They will continue to come down through the day.  High temperatures will only be in the 20's.  Tonight lows will drop into the teens at the base.

This Week:

We start cold on Monday with highs in the 20's up top and 30's at the base.  Then on Tuesday we warm into the 30's and then 40's for Wednesday.  By the weekend temperatures may approach 50 at the base.

We are expecting sunny skies as a ridge of high pressure takes over the West blocking all storms through next weekend.

Long-Range:

Right now it looks like the dry pattern may continue through mid-month.  The ridge should begin to shift NW and weaken as we go later in the month.  Eventually storms may be able to break into CA.
