Mild thru Friday, Cooler Weekend with Showers Possible

Category: Weather
Thursday - Friday:

Partly cloudy and mild for Thursday and Friday. Highs into the 40s. Northeast winds gusting to 35+ mph over the ridges Thursday morning and coming down through the day. Then increasing Friday afternoon to 50+ mph from the southwest.

The Weekend:

Saturday and Sunday we have storms moving through to the north. We could see a few scattered snow showers on the mountain Saturday morning with maybe a coating of snow on the upper mountain. Then clearing Saturday afternoon. Highs drop into the 30s on the mountain to near 40 at the base. Strong southwest winds gusting to 60+ mph Saturday which could close some of the upper mountain lifts.

Sunday the winds should come down. Expecting a mainly dry day with partly cloudy skies. A few forecast models suggest another weak system could bring a few more showers during the day. Highs in the 30s on the mountain to near 40 at the base.

Next Week:

Next week starts off quiet with sunny skies and lighter winds with highs in the 30s on the mountain to near 40 at the base. Then we could see some colder air and a chance for weak systems moving through starting around the middle of next week into the weekend of the 11th.

Long-Range:

Going towards and beyond mid-month, the pattern may become progressively more active with stronger storms possible.
