Significant Snow Possible Starting This Weekend

Category: Weather

We have seen some small storms bring over a foot and a half of snow so far this Fall to the upper half of the mountains.  The first significant storm of the season is possible this weekend into early next week.

The weather currently is nice with sunny skies expected through Thanksgiving.  

By Friday a storm system will be approaching the CA coast pushing light snowfall in Friday night through Sunday.  Snow levels will be around 7000 feet through the weekend and we could see 3-6 inches of snow on the upper half of the mountains through Sunday.

Sunday night the main area of low pressure pushes into CA and pulls in lots of moisture from off the Pacific Ocean.  The storm slowly moves through the area through Tuesday.  This storm has the potential to be the first significant snowfall of the season.

Snow levels will drop to the base of the mountains with this storm.  It is still a little early to talk about specific snow amounts, but if the forecast holds we could see amounts in the 2-3 foot range on the mountains by next Tuesday.  We will continue to update through the week on this potential as amounts could go up or down as we get closer.

Beyond this storm the weather looks quiet again the second half of next week.

Stay tuned for Updates
