Snow Moves In This Thursday & Out Next Thursday

Category: Weather

Clouds increasing today with winds starting to gust in the afternoon to around 35 mph up high. The highs will be in the 40's on the mountain to low 50's at the base.

First Storm

Thursday a fast moving storm moves through with precip falling from around 4 a.m. to 4 p.m. Snow levels start around 8000 feet and fall below the base by midday. Winds will gust to 80 mph on the mountain tops. We could see 1-3 inches at the base by evening, and 3-7 inches on the mountain.

2nd Storm

Friday the next storm moves in but is moving in to our South. That should bring down wind gusts to about half of Thursdays speeds. The snow should return in the afternoon and last into Friday night. By Saturday morning we could see 3-6 inches at the base, and 6-10 inches on the mountain.

The Weekend

We may have a break between storms for most of the weekend. There may be some scattered showers around, but only very light accumulations.  Highs will be in the 30's.  Winds should be breezy up top around 30-40 mph.

3rd, 4th, 5th Storm

Sunday night the next series of storms begin to move in. We could see several waves of precip Monday through Wednesday night, with almost continuous snowfall. Snow levels may creep up to 7000 feet Monday before falling below the base the rest of the period. Winds will be strong with these storms with ridge gusts in excess of 100 mph.

We could see 2-3 feet of additional snowfall Sunday night through Monday night, and then an additional 1-2+ feet Tuesday and Wednesday.

Storms Move Out Thursday 

The storms should end by Thursday but then a cold front moving down from the North could bring light snow next Friday.

Then we may have a longer break for the weekend of the 25th through the week of the 27th.
