21 Inch Storm Total Up Top and Opening Day!

Category: Weather

Snow Report:

We picked up 21 inches above 8,000 feet just in time for opening day on the upper half of the mountain!  It looks really good up there!

About an inch of snow at the base after a high elevation storm, and a few inches at the base of Alpine.  

The Weekend:

After a few snow showers this morning mostly sunny skies this afternoon with highs in the 30's. Tonight temperatures drop into the 20's so hopefully some snowmaking can resume over the lower elevations.

Over the weekend we are expecting lots of sun with highs in the 40's.

Next Week:

A storm moving into the Pacific NW and Northern CA on Monday could bring some light rain and high elevation snow above 8,000 feet, but only a few inches at best expected right now.

That storm may be the beginning of a milder pattern that lasts for a week. High pressure over the West may keep the storm track to our North, including a storm on Thanksgiving. High temperatures will be mild into the 50's most of next week and the following weekend.

Long-Range:

There are some hopeful signs on the long-range models that show we could see a colder and stormier pattern near the end of the month.  Let's hope that's right!
