Heavier Precip & Rising Snow Levels

Tonight heavier precip moves in and snow levels rise quickly overnight going above 8000 feet by Tuesday morning. We could see 1-3 inches at the base, and 3-11 inches on the mountain before the switch to rain.

Tuesday into Tuesday night heavy rain and high winds with up to 4 inches of rain up top, and winds gusting in excess of 100 mph. Snow levels look to sit around 9000 feet.

Wednesday a brief ridge starts to build in ahead of the next storm. That lifts the precip North with only lighter rain showers. Snow levels may rise to 9500 feet. Wednesday night we may see a complete break in any showers.

Another Storm with Falling Snow Levels

Thursday the next storm pushes closer and the heavy precip returns in the afternoon, with snow levels still around 9000 feet. Then Thursday night a cold front pushes in colder air and snow levels begin to fall to 7000 feet by Friday morning, and then hovering around 6500 feet during the day Friday behind the front. We could see 2-10 inches on the mountain by Friday afternoon.

Friday night a final wave may push in with snow levels dropping below the base. We could see 3-6 inches at the base, and 5-8 inches on the mountain before the snow finally tapers off by Saturday morning.

Nice Weather for the Weekend

High pressure builds in next weekend with dry weather, sun, and highs in the 30's. Then warming into the 40's the week of the 13th as we have about a 6 day dry spell.

Long-Range

Starting around the 17th a trough may push into the West Coast bringing a series of colder storms later in the month.
