8-15 Inches Possible Monday and 2-4 Feet Possible Thursday-Saturday

Snow Report

We picked up an inch of snow yesterday from the snow showers that moved through during the afternoon. We also saw high winds with that system. That brings the totals to around foot since Thursday.

Today the winds are much lighter with gusts to 30 mph up top this morning.  Expecting sun and highs in the 30's today. Wind gusts could pick up a little this afternoon.

Monday Storm

The next storm moves in during the early morning hours Monday and lasts into Monday evening. This is another cold storm with light and fluffy snow. We could see similar amounts as the last storm. The updated forecast this morning is for 8-15 inches on the mountain. We will see strong wind gusts overnight tonight, so lifts could be delayed Monday morning, but hoping the winds die down by afternoon.

Quick Break

A quick break in the action Tuesday into Wednesday but it is cold with highs in the 20's on the mountain and 30's at the base.  

Thursday-Saturday Storm

We have a strong multi-day storm headed our way starting Thursday. This should be the biggest storm so far this season. It is also a cold storm with all snow to the base, and the cold air will help to boost potential snowfall amounts as well.

We should see heavy snow on Thursday with the cold front with over a foot of snow expected. Then subsequent waves behind the cold front should move through Thursday night and again Friday into Friday night, as low pressure sitting off the Pacific NW rotates in more moisture. That could bring more feet of snow through Friday night. The snow showers could last into Saturday before the storm moves out.

Expect wind issues at least for Thursday, and hopefully lessening winds Friday into Saturday. The early guestimate for this storm is 2-4 feet of snow for the mountain. We will continue to watch storm as it approaches to see how much snowfall we could get each day from each wave of precip that moves in. 

Long-Range

It looks like we could see a break by next Sunday into the week of the 5th.  But the storm door remains open, and we could see more storms start to move in by the 7th.
