Cold & Snowy Weekend Ahead

Category: Weather
Tuesday - Friday:

Mostly sunny Tuesday, some clouds Wednesday, and mostly sunny Thursday into Friday. Highs into the 40s on the upper mountain 50s at the base. Light east winds gusting up to 30+ mph up top, turning southwest Friday and increasing later in the day.

Weekend Storm:

Expecting increasing clouds and winds early Saturday ahead of the next storm. We could see light snow break out by mid-morning. Ridgetop winds gusting to 65+ mph, possibly affecting some upper mountain lift operations. Highs dropping into the 30s.

The lighter snow could become heavier Saturday night into Sunday. Highs dropping into the 20s for the upper mountain with gusty winds continuing. Snow showers could continue into Sunday night.

The latest model runs track this storm right down along the coast which would draw in more moisture to this cold system. That is a good setup for bigger snowfall if this track holds as we get closer. Early estimates are for up to a foot+ at the base and up to 2+ feet up top by Monday morning. This would be powdery snow as well.

Long-Range:

Another wave could dive in Monday into next Tuesday keeping the snow showers going. Cold temperatures continuing into next week.

We may see a break later next week with more systems possible into the weekend of the 21st.
