More Snow Tuesday Night into Wednesday

Category: Weather
Storm Report:

An additional 2 inches fell Monday morning in the snow showers behind the storm.  That brings the 3-day total to 50 inches up top!  We will have more to add tomorrow morning as well from the incoming storm.

Tuesday Night-Wednesday Storm:

For Tuesday we have increasing clouds with highs in the 30's.  The winds are only gusting to 30-40 mph this morning up top but could increase to 50+ mph this afternoon.

The next storm is expected to push in Tuesday night, and move out by Wednesday evening.  This storm could have higher snow levels around 7,000 feet with rain at the base to start.  Snow levels could fall close to the base on Wednesday, it will be close.  Winds don't look as strong with this storm but could be gusting to 70+ mph up top Wednesday morning and then lessening through the day.

The latest forecast model runs are weakening this system with the latest runs showing the potential for 5-10 inches on the upper mountain with this storm, and 1-5 inches on the lower mountain.

Thursday-Friday:

Thursday should be the nicest weather of the week.  We should see some sun, lighter winds, and temperatures into the 30's on the mountain.

Friday we have increasing clouds ahead of the next storm with highs in the 30's on the mountain to near 40 at the base.

Weekend Systems:

We have two storms approaching CA this weekend.  One Friday night and another Sunday.  Both systems are forecast to split off the coast with most of the moisture diving into Southern CA.  

The latest trend with the first system Friday night is for it to completely miss us keeping us dry into Saturday.  The Sunday-Monday storm could push enough moisture north into Central CA to give us some light snowfall.

Long-Range:

The active weather could continue into the week of the 14th.  The latest forecast model runs show the potential for 1-2 more storms from the 14th-17th.

Then the pattern may turn drier starting the 18th as high pressure builds in over the West Coast.
