8 Inches So Far, Feet On The Way

Category: Weather

Squaw picked up 8 inches yesterday up top and Alpine 6, and 4 inches at the base.

Smaller Storm Today

Snow today through tonight before tapering off Saturday morning. We could see 5-8 inches at the base and 8-12 inches on the mountain. Winds will gust 40-50 mph on the mountain tops before calming Saturday.

A bit of a break Saturday afternoon through Sunday. A weak system may bring a coating of snow Sunday. Winds begin to gust to 50 mph up high by Sunday afternoon. Highs are in the 30's through the weekend.

Stronger Storms Roll In

Sunday night a strong storm moves in and lasts through Monday night. Snow levels start below the base before rising to between 7000-8000 feet by Monday morning. Then falling again Monday evening below base level by Monday night. Winds will be strong with this storm gusting over 100 mph.

We could see 15-20 inches of snow at the base, and 20-50 inches on the mountain fro the bottom up by Tuesday morning.

Tuesday we may have a bit of a break with snow showers lingering with several more inches possible. 

Final Cold Storm

Another system moves in Tuesday night into Wednesday with snow showers tapering off Wednesday night. We could see an additional 10-15 inches at the base, and 15-20 inches on the mountain by Thursday morning.

We should have a break next Thursday. Then a cold front moving down from the North next weekend may bring some light snow along with colder air.
