Storm Report

18 inches in the past 24 hours from the storm that hit yesterday with cold powdery snow.  That's on top of the 2 inches reported yesterday morning as the storm started, bringing the total to 20 inches for the storm!

Sunny and cold today into Wednesday with highs in the 20's on the mountains and 30's at the base.  The increasing winds may hold off until Wednesday night.

Big Storm Incoming

A prolonged storm moves in later Wednesday night lasting into Saturday. This is a cold storm that will bring a lot of snow to all elevations. The snow could be heaviest Thursday, Thursday night, and Friday night, with lighter snowfall Friday and Saturday. The storm moves out Saturday night.

High winds could be an issue for Thursday ahead of the cold front. Total snowfall amounts of 3-5 feet possible on the mountain with the highest amounts up top and a few feet possible in the Village.

Long-Range

We should clear out for Sunday with sun and highs in the 20's on the mountain and 30's at the base.

Next week we should start dry with highs into the 30's. Then the next storm could move in by next Wednesday and last into Friday. We are watching to see how wet and warm this storm could be, but we should see more snowfall, at least on the upper mountain.

The pattern looks to remain active into the 2nd week of March.
