Back to Spring Weather

Category: Weather

We saw rain and snow over the Memorial Day weekend as expected.  Squaw 5 inches of snow on the upper mountain over the weekend.  That brings the total to 3 feet (37 inches) for May. 


With the trough and moisture still over the West, we will see a chance for showers to fire up during the afternoons through the weekend.  The snow levels are now very high and will remain above 10,000 feet through the first weekend in June.  That means just rain showers expected even in the upper elevations.  Temperatures stay cool with highs in the 60's at the base and 50's on the upper mountain.


High pressure will be building in over the West Coast over the next week.  That will bring a drier and warmer pattern. 

We should see an end to the afternoon showers.  Highs should warm into the 70's at the base and 60's on the upper mountain.


Some long-range model runs suggest a trough pushes into the West Coast by the end of next week. 

We are likely done with cold storms bringing measurable snowfall, but it's not completely out of the question in June.  We may see some cooler air and a chance for afternoon showers if we see a trough push in during June, but we will keep an eye out for any late season snow.
