Final Snow Report

With 2 inches of snow from the final wave of the storm yesterday the upper mountain ended up with a storm total of 5 inches. That fell right in the range of the 4-9 inch forecast for the storm.

The lower half of the mountain saw a coating of snow yesterday morning when snow levels finally lowered.

Windy Today

We start to clear out and warm up today with temperatures in the 40's. Winds increasing through the day with gusts to 50+ mph on the mountain tops by afternoon. 

So watch for possible wind holds by late afternoon.

MLK Weekend

For the weekend high pressure continues to build in. We will see sunny skies and high temperatures into the 40's on the upper mountain, and 50's down low and at the base. 

Wind gusts to 40+ mph may continue on Friday on the mountain tops, but should start to relax over the weekend.

Pattern Change

Next week we begin a pattern change towards wetter and eventually cold weather. We could see the first storm move in Tuesday and another Thursday.

The latest model runs show light precipitation Tuesday through Tuesday night. We may just see light high elevation snow with up to an inch above 8,000 feet.

The next stronger storm may move in next Thursday into Friday.  t may start wet with higher snow levels around 7000 feet, and then colder air may work in Thursday night into Friday with snow for all elevations.

We could see significant snowfall from this storm so we will be watching it closely.

Long-Range

We could see a break the weekend of the 20th, and then storms continuing the week of the 22nd.
