Beautiful Start to the Week, More Snow Midweek

Category: Weather
Storm Totals:

Cold powdery snow continued to pile up on Sunday.  The 24-hour reports for the upper mountains is 12 inches, and 10 inches at the base.  That brings the 6-day storm total to 110 inches on the upper mountain! 

The February total is now a record-breaking 246 inches!  The season total is now at 503" which is 179% of average for this date, and 112% of the entire season average!

The Week Ahead:

Tuesday we should see sunny skies with light winds and cold temperatures.  Highs remain in the 20's.  Ridgetop winds gusting from the northeast at 25-35 mph.

The next cold system drops down from the north Wednesday into Thursday.  This is a drier system as it moves down over land.  Expecting light snow showers.  We could see 3-6 inches of powdery snow with this system over the 36-hour period.

Friday should be dry with some sun and highs only in the 20's on the mountain.

Saturday into Sunday night another cold system could drop down from the north with light snow possible through the weekend.  That could drop several inches of fresh snow on the mountain over the weekend.

Long-Range:

The week of the 25th we could transition into a drier and milder pattern.  Then maybe a stormier pattern again starting the weekend of the 2nd.
