Snow Wednesday, Snow Showers Thursday, Nice Weekend Ahead

Category: Weather
Snowfall Report:

Another 2-4 inches fell on the upper mountain overnight bringing the 2-day storm total to 4-7 inches.  Snow levels didn't fall to the base until this morning so no accumulations reported yet.

Wednesday - Thursday Storm:

Heavier snow expected Wednesday with lighter snow showers expected for Wednesday night into Thursday.  The snow levels will be near the base Wednesday and then fall well below the base Wednesday night into Thursday.  That will make any snow falling tonight into Thursday drier and more powdery.

We could see 5-9 inches on the mountain Wednesday, 4-7 inches Wednesday night, and a final 1-2 inches Thursday.  At the base, we could see a total of 3-6 inches by Thursday night.  

Ridgetop winds gusting to 70+ mph is expected to continue through Wednesday continuing to affect upper mountain lifts, before falling to 40-50 mph on Thursday.  Highs in the 30's Wednesday and then 20's on the upper mountain for Thursday and 30's at the base.

The Weekend: 

We will see a break in the storms Friday through Sunday, just in time for Winter Wondergrass.  We should see sunny skies with highs in the 30's on the upper mountain and 40's at the base, and lighter winds Friday-Saturday.  Sunday we could warm into the 40's on the upper mountain and low 50's at the base.  

Long-Range:

A few weaker systems could bring some scattered light showers Mon-Wed with partly sunny skies between any showers.  Snow levels look high, above 7,000 feet.  Highs in the 40's.

A few stronger systems are possible later in the week into the weekend of the 6th.  The unsettled pattern could continue into the week of the 8th.
