Cold with Snow Showers Possible Through the Weekend

Category: Weather
Snowfall Report:

We had snow down to the base Wednesday.  24-hour snowfall as of 6 a.m. this morning is 6 inches at the base and 15 inches on the upper mountain!  That brings the 2-day storm total to 20 inches so far, and the season total is now at 611 inches!

Thursday-Friday:

Colder temperatures expected Thursday-Friday, with highs only in the 20's on the upper mountain and 30's at the base.  Winds are gusting to 70+ mph this morning on the ridgetops which could delay some upper mountain lifts.  The winds should come down through the day. 

Expecting scattered snow showers through Friday with 1-2 inches possible each 12-hour period.  That means we could see 3-6 inches of additional snowfall on the mountain through Friday.  With the colder air, this snow showers be drier and more powdery than the snow we saw the last 2 days.

The Weekend:

The next storm drops down along the CA coast over the weekend.  That should bring us clouds with peeks of sun and some scattered snow showers.  Not expecting more than a dusting to an inch both Saturday and Sunday from the scattered showers.

It remains breezy and cold through the weekend, with highs in the 20's on the upper mountain and 30's at the base.

Monday-Tuesday:

We should see a break on Monday with some sun and temperatures remaining cold.

Then a weak system moves through on Tuesday with light snow.  We could see 3-5 inches of snow on Tuesday.  Temperatures remain cold with highs in the 30's through Tuesday.

Long-Range:

We will see a drier pattern starting next Wednesday through the 3rd week of March.  We should also see some milder temperatures as we go into the weekend of the 16th. 

There are some signs we could see storms return later in the month.
