2 Cold Storms for Powder Days

Category: Weather
Today

Partly sunny today (Wednesday) with increasing clouds and winds.  Ridge top winds of 50 mph this morning gusting up to 80 mph this afternoon. 

The Storm

By this evening a strong cold front moves in bring much colder air and a period of heavy snowfall. Then snow showers could linger into Thursday evening. 

Highs in the 40's today and 20's on the mountain and 30's at the base for Thursday. Winds could still gust to 50 mph up top Thursday.

We could see 4-7 inches at the base by Thursday evening, and 6-12 inches on the mountain. Most of that could fall by morning making for a good powder day Thursday.

A Break

Nice weather returns Friday into Sunday but we could see some gusty winds up high, maybe still to 50 mph on Friday. Highs warm back into the 40's, and then 50's by Saturday. 

The Next Storm

By Sunday afternoon the next cold front is pushing in with more cold air and snow moving in Sunday night and lasting into Monday night. This storm could drop over a foot of snow on the mountain so we will be tracking it closely.

Long-Range

After a break next Tuesday-Wednesday another storm could move in next Thursday. Then a nice weekend for the weekend of the 21st-22nd. The last week of the month we could see more storms as a trough stays near the West Coast.
