Dry Week Ahead, Warming Later in the Week

Category: Weather
Snowfall Report:

The snow came down hard all the way to the base Sunday morning and we added several more inches to the totals on the mountain. The snow cleared out pretty quickly by late morning. The storm total by midday Sunday was 4 inches at the base and 8 inches on the upper mountain. Exactly what we were expecting from this fast-moving storm.

The Week Ahead:

Monday - Wednesday looks to be partly sunny and slightly cooler with highs in the 30s up top and 40s at the base. A weak storm moving through to the north on Tuesday could bring the chance of a flake or two. Ridgetop winds could gust to 40+ mph from the west by Monday afternoon, increasing to 60+ mph Tuesday possibly affecting some lifts, and then 40+ mph from the east Wednesday.

Thursday into the weekend a strong area high pressure builds in over CA. That brings us a drier and milder pattern. We should see mostly sunny skies with highs warming into the 50s into the weekend.

Long-Range:

The long-range models suggest we could transition back to a cooler pattern the week of the 3rd, and possibly a more active pattern the week of the 10th. The only chance for snow on the horizon right now is the possibility of light snow with the cold front Sunday night.
