1-3 Feet of Snow Possible Over the Weekend

Category: Weather
Wednesday - Thursday:

Partly cloudy skies expected Wednesday into Thursday as a system drops down the coast missing us. Highs in the 40's with lighter winds.

Friday-Saturday Storm:

Friday looks dry at least in the morning, with some light showers possible by afternoon. Snow levels starting around 7,500 feet.

Friday night into Saturday the next storm moves through. Heavy snow expected later Friday night into Saturday morning, and then snow showers into Saturday night. Snow levels falling to the base Saturday morning and even colder air working in with higher snow ratios as we go into Saturday night.  Winds gusting to 60+ mph up top on Saturday could affect some lift operations.

By Sunday morning we could see 5-10 inches at the base, and 10-20 inches of snow on the mountain.

Sunday-Monday Storm:

A cold trough drops down from the north on Sunday with an additional wave dropping down Monday. That should keep snow showers going Sunday into Monday. We could continue to see gusty upper mountain winds and temperatures dropping into the 20's.  That means it will be cold and the snow will become more powdery.

By Monday morning we could see an additional 5-10 inches at the base, and 10-15 inches on the mountain. Then a final few inches of snow is possible Monday before we start to dry out.

Long-Range:

A colder pattern sets up for the week of the 4th. The weather may be dry Tuesday-Thursday. The next cold system dropping down from the north could bring some snow by Friday the 8th, or it may drop down to our east.  

A more active weather pattern may return the week of the 11th.
