Some Hope for Snow in the Long-Range!

Category: Weather

This Week:

Sunny weather pattern continues for the next week. High temperatures will be in the low 50's during the day and overnight lows in the 20's at the base and near 40 at the summit. 

The inversions are keeping it warmer at the top than the bottom at night, but it has remained cold enough on the lower mountain to continue snowmaking.

The Weekend:

This weekend storms should return to the Pacific NW which may cool upper mountain highs into the 40's and bring a little wind. Still expecting mostly sunny skies through the weekend.

The new weather pattern may also mix up the air a bit and allow for colder temperatures below freezing again on the upper mountain for snowmaking.

Next Week:

By the middle of next week high pressure may shift far enough away to allow colder air and the possibility of light snowfall.

We are watching for the possibility of system diving down from the North next Wednesday.  There is a better chance for colder air than snow, but we will keep watching to see if we can get some light snow out of it.

Christmas:

Heading towards Christmas high pressure may try to build back in but further North near Alasak.  That could possibly allowing moisture to break underneath into CA near or just after Christmas.
