6-10 Inches So Far, More Snow Possible This Afternoon

Category: Weather
Report

6 inches of snow fell overnight at the base, and 10 inches on the upper mountain!  The forecast was for 5-10 inches at the base and 10-15 inches on the mountain. 

So we hit the forecast, but we could still see more snow as snow showers fire up again this afternoon.  We could add another 1-3 inches depending on where the snow showers fall.

Forecast

Cold today with highs only in the 20's on the mountain and 30's at the base.  Winds will be gusting to 40+ mph this morning, but should stay to diminish this afternoon.  The snow showers could linger into the evening before we clear out.

Saturday and Sunday we should have clouds and sun with temperatures staying cold with highs remaining in the 20's and 30's.

Sunday night into Monday a weak system could bring another 1-3 inches of snow to the mountain.

We are watching closely what could be a stronger storm for Tuesday night through Thursday night.  This storm could drop 1-2 feet of snow, so we will be tracking it closely all weeked.

Long-Range

It looks like by next weekend the the 27th, we could see high pressure build in with dry conditions.

The week of the 29th we could see a cold trough return, but depending on where it sets up we could see more storms or just colder air.
