Storm Day Today thru Tuesday, Quiet Weekend Ahead

Category: Weather
The Storm

The rain is moving in this morning with upper mountain temps rising as expected.  Snow levels are expected to rise today above 9k just above the top peaks.  

Winds are gusting up to 50 mph this morning up top.  That should continue into tonight, and they may come down a little for Tuesday.

The rain and snow continues tonight into Tuesday before tapering off by Tuesday night. 

The latest forecast model trends continue to be to move the storm in further to the South, which has been lowering the total precipitation amounts, and limiting the amount of cold air moving in Tuesday.

The snow levels should come down around 8,000 feet tonight into Tuesday as some colder air works in.  They may dip just below 8k Tuesday afternoon/evening as the storm is winding down.

For the final snowfall forecast we have 0-1 inches above 7,000 feet, and 4-9 inches above 8,000 feet.  The measurements are taken right near 8k where the snow levels are fluctuating near, so if they sit just above 8k we may come in below the forecast, if they sit just below 8k tonight into Tuesday then we should pick up the 4-9 at the measuring stake, with the higher end more likely on the peaks above High Camp.

Post Storm

Wednesday through Friday the storm track shifts to the North but we could see some clouds and breezy conditions.  

High temperatures warm back into the 40's on the mountains by Friday, and near 50 at the base.  

MLK Weekend

For the weekend high pressure strengthens over the area with high temperatures into the 40's up top and 50's at the base.  

Long-Range

Next week we could see a strong Pacific jet stream take aim at the West Coast with a series of storms and wetter weather.  The storms may start by Tuesday and continue through the week.

These storms may have colder air than the ones we have been seeing.
