Storm Moving In
For Today we have increasing clouds and wind with ridge top winds picking up to 80+ mph by afternoon.
By late afternoon a strong cold front approaches with heavy snowfall ahead of and with the front, and lighter snow showers lingering into the day on Friday.
There is no change to the forecast from yesterday. We could see 5-10 inches of snow at the base and 10-15 inches of snow up on the mountain by Friday evening.
For the weekend we clear out but with cold air is in place. High temperatures may only be in the 30's at the base and 20's up on the mountain. The winds should die down Friday into Saturday, and then could pick up again Sunday ahead of the next storm.
Sunday Night Storm
It looks like the next storm will move through Sunday night into the day on Monday. This storm looks to have low snow levels as well, but it is a weak storm that won't bring much precip this far South.
Total additional snowfall amounts could be 1-3 inches at the base, and 2-4 inches on the upper mountain.
We could see another cold system move in Wed-Thu next week. It could be a little wetter, more in line with Tonight's snowfall amounts.
High pressure builds in with drier and possibly warmer weather for the weekend of the 27th.
Long-range ensemble runs do show the ridge retrograding away from the West Coast again the week of the 29th. We will have to see how deep the trough digs, but maybe we could see another storm around the first of February.
