Storms Continue for the Foreseeable Future

Category: Weather
Snowfall Report:

Another 1-2 inches of snow fell on the mountain over the past 24 hours from light snow showers.  That brings the 2-day storm total to 2-4 inches. 

Thursday - Friday:

Scattered showers will end Thursday morning.  We will have clouds with some sun possible peeking out by afternoon.  Highs in the 30's on the upper mountain and 40's at the base.

Friday we start the day with some sun and increasing clouds as the next storm approaches.  Highs in the 30's on the upper mountain and 40's at the base.  Light snow could begin to push in later in the afternoon.

Friday Night-Saturday Storm:

The next storm is expected to move through quickly Friday night with scattered snow showers possible into Saturday.  We could see another 1-3 inches to the base and 3-6 inches of snow on the mountain by Saturday afternoon.  Highs in the 30's on the mountain.  Ridgetop winds gusting to 35+ mph.

We should see a break in storms again Sunday with sunny skies and highs in the 30's & 40's.

More Storms Next Week:

A slow-moving system approaches the coast by Monday and it could take until Friday to completely clear through CA.  Several waves could bring snow to the mountain through the week.  The first on Monday could bring 4-8 inches of snow to the mountain.

Another wave moving through Tuesday night into Wednesday should bring at least several more inches of snow.  Then the models are split on whether or not a final wave brings snow Thursday

We will be watching this system closely as we get closer.  The slow-moving nature of the storm could mean significant snowfall amounts pile up on the mountain by the end of the week.  We are expecting some high winds with this storm starting Monday, that could affect upper mountain lift operations.

Long-Range: 

We may see a break in the storms going into the weekend of the 30th just in time for Winter Wondergrass. 

The active pattern could continue though, with storms returning through the first week of April.
