Storm Moves In Today

Category: Weather
The Storm

Very windy this morning with heavy precip moving in. Snow levels look to be near to slightly above 8000 feet today.  The snow levels are the tricky part of this storm.  They may briefly dip this morning as the heavy precip moves in and we see evaporational cooling.  We will have to see where they setup by this afternoon, and how low the very heavy precip could drag them down. 

Then overnight tonight the snow levels drop to the base after midnight.  We could see 3-6 inches at the base by Friday morning, 3-6 inches between the base and 7000 feet, 6-12 inches between 7000-8000 feet, and 12-18 inches above 8000 feet.

Friday is cold with snow showers moving through and then clearing by Friday night. We could see another inch or two during the day Friday, with highs only in the 20's.

The Weekend

A cold weekend with sun and highs only in the 20's. We could see breezy conditions with a cold East wind blowing up top.

Next Week

Next week we start cold Monday and start to warm on Tuesday back into the 30's on the mountain.

Then Tuesday night a cold front may move through bringing cold air and the chance for snow showers. Not expecting more than a dusting of snow right now.

We could see another cold front Thursday night with the chance for slightly more snowfall. Latest model runs show that we could see several inches, so we will keep monitoring that over the next week.

Extended Oulook

We could see a continued cold pattern Christmas weekend, and the chance for a more significant storm around Christmas Day.
