Light Snow Possible Saturday Night into Sunday

Category: Weather

We are finally tracking a storm that could bring some light snow to the mountain this weekend!

Tuesday - Friday:

Mostly sunny skies expected through Friday. Highs in the 40s up top and 50s at the base Tuesday. Then warming into the 50s on the mountain and near 60 at the base Wed - Fri. Overnight lows in the 20s.

The Weekend:

High-pressure shifts east with a trough pushing into the West for the weekend. That may lead to a weak system bringing us some light snow by Saturday night into Sunday. We may start sunny Saturday with increasing clouds and wind in the afternoon. Southwest winds gusting to 50+ mph up top by evening. Highs dropping into the 40s on the mountain.

Snow showers could push in as early as Saturday evening ahead of the cold front and continuing Saturday night as snow levels fall below the base. The snow showers could linger into Sunday before clearing later in the day. The latest forecast model runs show 1-3 inches of fresh snow possible on the mountain by Sunday afternoon. Highs only in the 30s on Sunday.

Long-Range: 

Next week the models agree that Monday is a dry day. Then they diverge for Tuesday with some forecast models showing another weak system for Tuesday and other keeping us dry through midweek.

The pattern could become more active by the end of next week into the 2nd week of March.
