Snow Monday Night, Dry & Warming Tue - Fri, Showers Possible Saturday

Category: Weather
Monday Storm:

The next storm pushes in by Monday afternoon.  We should see rain and snow showers increase, and then a burst of heavier snow Monday evening as the cold front moves through.  Snow levels starting around 7500 feet and falling to around 6,500 feet by 4 PM.  Snow showers continue behind the front into Monday night with snow levels lowering below the base.

We could see 1-3 inches at the base by Tuesday morning, and 3-6 inches of snow on the mountain above 7,000 feet.  Winds are expected to be strong on Monday likely closing some upper mountain lifts.  Gusty winds could linger into Tuesday but not as strong as Monday.

Behind the Storm:

High pressure begins to build back in Tuesday and continues through the end of the week.  We should see the sun return with temperatures warming through the week into 50's for highs, and even 60's at the base by Friday.

There's a chance we could see a weak system Saturday bring a few scattered showers and temperatures cooling a few degrees.  Snow levels above 8,000 feet.  Then Sunny and mild again for Sunday.

Long-Range: 

Next week we could see a weak system bring some scattered showers next Tuesday.  Overall expected a drier and mild pattern through the end of April.
