Another impressive 24 hours as cold powdery snow continued to pile up. The 24-hour reports for the upper mountains are 25-30 inches, and 20-22 inches at the bases. That brings the 5-day storm total to 99 inches so far on the upper mountain!
The February total is now at 235 inches setting a new record for February! The season total is now at 492" which is 179% of average for this date!
Snow Continues Sunday
Sunday the final wave moves through. Winds are gusting 40-50 mph up top this morning and should come down more this afternoon. Highs only in the 20's with powdery snow continuing to fall.
We could see a final 4-7 inches Sunday before the storm clears out Sunday night. That means the 6-day storm total will likely end up close to 9 feet on the upper mountain.
The Week Ahead
Monday & Tuesday we should see sunny skies with light winds and cold temperatures. Highs remain in the 20's.
The next cold system drops down from the north Wednesday into Thursday. This is a drier system as it moves down over land. Expecting light snow showers. We could see 3-6 inches of powdery snow with this system.
Friday & Saturday should be dry with some sun and highs only in the 20's.
Next Sunday into Monday another cold system could drop down from the north with light snow. The forecast models are flirting with the idea of some moisture streaming in off the ocean possibly bringing some heavy snow, so we will watch that.
The middle of the week of the 25th we could transition into a drier and milder pattern. Then maybe a stormier pattern again starting the weekend of the 2nd.
