4-6 Foot Storm Totals, More Snow Sunday

Category: Weather

Storm Totals:

An additional 21 inches being reported this morning on the upper mountain in the past 24 hours, and 18 inches at the base.  That brings the 4 day total to just under 4 feet (46 inches) at the base, and just over 6 Feet (74 inches) up top!

Friday:

Moisture will continue to stream into Northern CA to our north.  We could see a few light showers this far south Friday into Friday night.  Snow levels rise through the day on Friday to around 7,500 feet by Friday evening.  That means we could see rain showers on the lower mountain, and maybe an inch or two of snow on the upper mountain by Saturday morning.  Upper mountain wind gusts of 40-50 mph.

Saturday:

Saturday high pressure builds in with some sun.  Highs in the 40's with lighter winds.

Sunday:

A final storm moves in Sunday/Sunday night.  This storm is trending wetter as it pushes further south.  Snow levels could hover around 7,000 feet through the day on Sunday, then falling well below the base behind the cold front Sunday evening.  We could see rain at the base changing to snow with 3-6 inches possibly by Monday morning, and 6-18 inches on the mountain from bottom to top.

Long-Range:

We are expecting a dry pattern to build in starting Monday the 21st through the last week of January as high pressure builds in off the West Coast blocking storms.

Watching the first week of February to see if storms could return.
