10 Inches and Counting

Category: Weather

A cold storm brought snow showers over the past 24 hours piling 10 more inches  on the mountain at High Camp, and 7 inches at the base.

Snow showers will continue today with an inch or two possible.  Another wave of steadier precip will move in tonight into Wednesday.  That could bring another 3-6 inches to the mountain.  Storm totals by Thursday morning should be around 15-20 inches up top.  

After a break on Thursday another storm will push into the Pacific Northwest.  We will be on the Southern edge of the precipitation so amounts are expected to be light.  We could see a few more inches of snow.

Next weeked a ridge of high pressure will build along the West Coast bringing a break in the storms for about 4-5 days.

As we approach Christmas Day high pressure may redevelop furthern North towards the Gulf of Alaska.  That may allow much colder air to move down from Canada bringing us a colder pattern, along with the chance of weak systems bringing light snowfall moving down the coast.
