Update on the Weekend Storm

Category: Weather
Dry/Mild Weather

Partly cloudy today (Monday) with some stronger wind gusts up high to 60 mph this morning up top, and lessening this afternoon. 

Partly sunny weather continues into Thursday with highs in the 40's in the upper elevations and 50's in the lower elevations.

The Storm

Friday we see rain move in and winds increase. Snow levels rise to 10,000-11,000 feet with moderate rain and strong winds for the upper elevations. 

Heavy rain moves in Friday night into Saturday. Snow levels could crash to the base Saturday morning. Depending on the timing we could see up to a foot of snow on the upper mountain and several inches down to the base by evening. 

The snow showers continue into Saturday night before the storm moves out, possibly dropping several more inches.

A Break

Sunday into next Monday we have a break with dry and cool weather.

Long-Range

We could see a quick hitting system bring more snow to the mountains next Tuesday.  This active pattern with the chance of some snow every few days could continue through mid-month.
