Quiet Weather Pattern with Nightly Snowmaking

Category: Weather

Snow Stats

After picking up 5 inches of snow from the last storm the season total is now at 64 inches for the upper mountain.  

Quiet Pattern

High pressure is building in over the West and it may anchor there for about 2 weeks.  That is bringing us a quiet weather pattern this week and most likely next week as well.

It has been cold the last few nights with lows into the teens and highs only in the 20's.  That has allowed for snowmaking around the clock.

For the rest of this week daytime highs will be in the 40's and overnight lows in the 20's. 

We may warm a little next week with highs reaching 50 degrees with lots of sunshine.

The cold overnight temps this week should allow the snowmaking to continue expanding terrain.

Possible Change?

There is some hope looking at the forecast models.  Several runs suggest that we could begin to see a pattern change around the 20th.  Hopefully that pattern change will lead to snowstorms.  We will keep watching.
