Beautiful Weather Sunday, Storms Return Tuesday

Category: Weather
The Weekend:

We are expecting sunny skies Sunday through Monday.  High temperatures in the 40's on the mountain through the period.  Overnight lows in the 20's could allow for the snow guns to fire back up and to continue to try and expand terrain.

Storm #1:

We have 2 more storms on the way this week.  The first one moves in Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday.  This storm is warmer and weaker.  We could see snow levels start around 8,000 feet Tuesday afternoon and fall to 7,000 feet Tuesday night through Wednesday. 

That means we are expecting all rain at the base.  Above 7,000 feet on the mountain, we could see Only expecting 1-5 inches of snow by Wednesday evening, with the highest amounts on the upper mountain.

Storm #2:

A stronger and colder storm is expected to push in by Wednesday night and last through the day on Thursday.  Snow levels may start at 7,000 feet Wednesday night but are expected to fall below the base Thursday morning.

This storm has the potential to bring 6-12 inches to the base, and 12-18 inches of snow to the mountain by Friday morning.  We will continue to fine tune the forecast as the storm gets closer.

Long-Range:

Next weekend the forecast models are split on whether we see a quick-hitting storm Saturday, or a slower moving storm moves through Sunday into Monday.

We could see a drier pattern the week of the 3rd, but a better pattern for storms could set up the 2nd week of December.
