The Weekend: 

We will see a break in the storms Friday through Sunday with beautiful weather for the Winter Wondergrass festival.  We will see sunny skies with highs in the 30's on the upper mountain and 40's at the base Friday.  Then warming for the weekend with highs the 40's on the upper mountain and 50's at the base.  

Monday - Tuesday Storm:

Clouds and winds increasing on Monday with highs in the 40's.  We could see the winds affect upper mountain lift operations Monday-Tuesday.  The next storm pushes in by Monday night with light rain and snow showers possible into Tuesday.

Snow levels could start around 9,000 feet Monday evening and then fall to around 7,000 feet for Tuesday.  Above 7,000 feet on the mountain, we could see 1-2 inches of wet snow by Tuesday night, with rain expected at the base.

Long-Range:

We could see a quick break Wednesday.  But storms could return by Thursday into the weekend of the 6th.  These storms look mild with rain and high elevation snow until a cold front moves through next Saturday.  

We will continue to watch the trend all week to see how much rain and snow we could see.
