Quieter Weather Sunday & Monday Before Next Storm Series

Category: Weather

The snow levels came down briefly yesterday and we were able to pick up a total of 4 inches of wet snow at high camp and above.  We saw all rain below 8000 feet as the snow levels didn't fall until the storm ended.

The Forecast

Colder today and Monday with some breaks of sun and highs in the 30's on the mountain and near 40 at the base.  Winds could gust to 40+ mph up top both days.  The colder air will allow the snow makers to make snow and continue to build trails as well as repair from the storm.

Next Storm

Tuesday the next storm arrives. It starts as snow down to base level and we could see a few inches for all elevations on Tuesday.

By Tuesday evening snow levels rise to 7000 feet and then to 8000 feet Tuesday night. That will keep the accumulating snowfall into Wednesday above 8000 feet where we could see several more inches on the mountain, and rain below that. 

Wednesday night we could see a break as the storm track shifts to our North. Then on Thursday the next storm moves in and lasts into Thursday night before ending by Friday morning. This time snow levels start above 8000 feet and fall to the base by Thursday afternoon. By Friday morning we could see several inches at the base and another foot or more above 7000 feet.

Extended Forecast

We should see dry weather move in for next weekend and much colder air with highs only in the 20's. The dry weather may continue into the week of the 19th but with the temperatures beginning to warm. The next chance for a storm may be between the 21st and 24th.

We will continue to update the forecast details as the next storm approaches.
