12 Inches on the Upper Mountain So Far!

Category: Weather

Snow Report:

We picked up 12 inches of snow in the past 24 hours above 8,000 feet.  It even snowed down to 7,000 feet with Alpine reporting 5 inches at the base.  

The Storm Continues:

The rain and snow continue today with snow levels up around 8,000 feet through most of the day.  Then tonight a cold front moves through during the evening dropping snow levels to the base.  We could see an additional 6-12 inches at 8,000 feet, 3-6 at 7,000 feet, and 1-3 inches at the base.

Opening Day:

For Friday we clear out for opening day with sun and decreasing winds, but we could still see gusts up top to 40 mph.

The Weekend:

For the weekend we are expecting sunny skies with highs in the 40's on the mountain.  We could see some increasing clouds for Sunday.  Winds will be breezy up top gusting to 25 mph.

Long-Range:

Still tracking storms for Monday and Thursday next week.  They both look like mild storms with a mild pattern overall for next week and highs in the 40's. 

The Monday storm looks like it could mainly stay to our North on the latest forecast model runs.  The Thursday into Friday storm is split on the models between a storm that falls apart as it approaches or a wet system that could bring rain and high elevation snow.

We could have a better pattern by the end of the month for colder storms.
