Rain/Snow Thursday Night & Saturday Night - Sunday

Category: Weather

Partly to mostly cloudy skies with some sun 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 into Friday morning. The snow levels will be fairly high in the 8000-8500 ft. range before falling at the end Friday morning to around 7000-7500 ft. So we will see some rain showers for the lower mountain and village. The upper mountain above 8k could pick up a coating up to 2 inches of wet snow by Friday morning.

Saturday Night - Sunday 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 Saturday evening into Sunday morning, with snow showers possibly lingering into Sunday afternoon. Snow levels will start high with this storm Saturday evening, around 8000 ft. Then lowering to the base Sunday morning as the storm starts to clear out. Winds on Sunday could gust to 55+ mph up top.

We could see a coating up to 2 inches of wet snow at the base Sunday morning at the end, 2-4inches of snow at mid-mountain, and 4-8 inches on the upper mountain by Sunday afternoon. 


Monday looks drier and cooler with highs in the 30s. Then another weak storm could bring some light snow to the mountain for Tuesday with highs in the 30s.

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