Mild thru Saturday, A Storm for Saturday Night - Sunday

Category: Weather
Wednesday - Thursday:

High pressure builds in with a drier pattern for  Wednesday - Thursday. We could see partly to mostly cloudy skies with some sun as the active storm track is just to our north. Ridgetop winds gusting to 40+ mph Wednesday and lighter for Thursday. Temperatures warming into the 40s for highs.

Thursday Night System:

A storm moving through to the north may brush us with precipitation Thursday night. The snow levels will be fairly high in the 7500-8000 ft. range. So we should just see some rain showers for the lower mountain and village. The upper mountain could pick up a coating up to 2 inches of wet snow.

The Weekend Storm:

Friday into Saturday should be partly to mostly cloudy with some sun, and mild. Highs into the 40s. Expecting lighter winds.

The next storm moves in around Saturday evening into Sunday, with snow showers lingering into Sunday night. Snow levels will start high with this storm Saturday evening, around 7500-8000 ft. Then lowering to the base Sunday morning. Winds on Sunday could gust to 55+ mph up top.

We could see 3-5 inches of snow at the base, and 5-10 inches of snow on the mountain by Monday morning. We will continue to fine-tune the timing, snow levels, and snowfall potential as we get closer.

Long-Range:

We could see snow scattered snow showers Monday, and another weak/moderate system for Tuesday.

Then the long-range models show a drier pattern setting up for the end of the month into the first week of February.
