New Year's Eve:
New Year's Eve a cold front moves through with gusty winds and a chance for snow showers. Temperatures drop back into the 20's for Monday and teens on the upper mountain. Upper mountain winds to 60+ mph and up to 90+ mph on the top ridges will cause lift closures and very cold wind chills.
We start to clear and warm Tuesday into the 30's. But winds could still be gusting to 50+ mph up top.
Wednesday high pressure builds in over CA with highs warming into the 40's. Winds becoming light. Expecting a dry pattern to last through Friday.
By Saturday night the next storm could move in. Some models show a low moving down off the CA coast drawing up moisture from the south. Others show a trough swinging through. Either scenario could bring several inches of snowfall to the mountain through Sunday night.
We will fine tune this storm as we get closer.
A series of weakening storms could continue to move through CA the week of the 7th.
