11 Inches So Far Up Top, The Wet Turns White Tonight

Category: Weather
Recap So Far

We picked up 3 inches yesterday morning up top before the snow levels jumped above the summit and turned to rain.  Then a brief dip in snow levels overnight to just below 8000 feet dropped another 8 inches of snow up top.  So 11 inches total before snow levels jumped again this morning above the summit.

Today

Wet and windy today with rain and snow levels above 9000 feet.  Winds blowing over 70 mph up top.

Rain Turns To Snow Tonight

Snow levels fall overnight to 8000 feet around 10 p.m., 7000 feet around 1 a.m., and to the base by morning. We could see 6-12 inches on the mountains overnight.

Feet of Snow This Week

Monday into Monday night snow levels are below lake level as the snow continues. By Tuesday morning we could have an additional 8-16 inches at the base, and 16-23 inches on the mountain.

The snow continues Tuesday through Thursday as more waves move through. Over the 3 day period we could see an additional 2-3 feet of snow at the base, and 3-4+ feet for the mountain by Friday morning.

Finally a Break 

We may see a break for next weekend with only the chance for a weak system moving through. Then a break to start the week of the 16th.

More Storms Late Month

We may see a deep trough dig in along the West Coast starting around the 19th.  Speculation this far out, but the models have been consistent.  That pattern could bring a train of colder storms later in the month.
