The storm that moved through Saturday night overproduced, dropping 6-9 inches of fluffy powder on the upper mountain, and 4-6 inches at the base! That brings the final 4-day storm total to 22-24 inches on the upper mountain.
Sunday - Tuesday:
We will have drier weather for Sunday through Tuesday. Expect some sun with highs in the 30s at the base and 20s on the upper mountain, with lighter winds. Overnight lows in the teens.
Weak Wednesday System:
For Wednesday we see a system move in that is splitting and weakening. By the time it reaches the Sierra we may only see clouds and a few scattered snow showers. There is an outside chance that it holds together a little better with slightly more snow, so we will watch closely.
Thursday - Friday:
Thursday and Friday we should stay dry with the next storm staying to our northwest. We may see some clouds and gusty mountaintop winds Thursday. Highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s.
At some point next weekend the storm off the coast will move through CA. The latest model runs show dry weather for most of Saturday, and then precipitation moving through the Sierra Saturday night into Sunday. That could bring light-moderate snow to the mountains next weekend. We will fine-tune as we get closer.
Going into Christmas week we may have a cool and drier pattern with the possibility for some weak-moderate systems to move through with some snow.
