Snow Levels Falling, Stormy Pattern Ahead

Category: Weather
Today's Storm

Snow levels have already dropped to around 7500 feet this morning.  We had an inch of new snow at high camp at 6 a.m. and it has been snowing heavily up there since.

Heavy rain and snow will continue today with snow levels around 7500-8000 feet. The precip tapers off tonight by midnight with snow levels lowering to the base this evening.  We could see over a foot up top by midnight, a few inches at mid-mountain, and a coating to an inch at the base.

A Quick Break

We have a break Sunday and Monday with some sun, and highs in the 30's.

Significant Multi-Day Storm

The next storm moves in Monday night and could last until Friday. This storm could start with snow levels at base level and end at base level, while rising near 8000 feet in the middle. This could be a significant snowfall event with several feet of snow on the mountain, and significant snow at the base at the start and the end.  We will be fine tuning the snowfall amounts as we get closer.

Long-Range

Colder air moves in next weekend as a cold trough settles in over the area.  We could see another break in the storms for several days.

We will try to get another cold storm in here before Christmas.
