Weak Spring Systems Bring Chances for Light Snow This Week

Category: Weather
Sunday:

Sunday we should see partly sunny skies.  Temperatures warm into the 40's on the upper mountain and 50's at the base.  Mountain top winds gusting to 50+ mph as the storm track remains just to our north.  We could see the winds affect a few upper mountain lifts.

Monday - Tuesday:

We should see increasing clouds and winds on Monday.  We could see light rain showers by later in the day with snow levels up around 9,500 feet.  Steadier precipitation is expected to push in Monday night into Tuesday.  Then we should clear out Tuesday night.  Strong ridgetop winds could affect some upper mountain lifts Monday afternoon into Tuesday.

Colder air is expected to push in with the heavier precipitation Monday night into Tuesday.  Then clearing out by Tuesday night.  Snow levels could lower near the base by Tuesday morning.  We could see a dusting to an inch of snow at the base, 1-3 inches above 7,000 feet, and 3-5 inches above 8,000 feet by Tuesday night. 

Cold Thursday System:

After a quick break on Wednesday, we could see a cold system could drop down the West Coast Thursday.  That could bring snow showers Thursday afternoon in Friday morning.  We could see 1-3 inches of snow on the mountain.  Highs in the 30's on the mountain Thursday.

Long-Range: 

We could see drier weather Friday into Saturday with highs in the 40's.

Another cold system could drop down from the north with snow showers sometime next Sunday - Monday.

There are some signs we could go into a drier pattern beyond mid-month.
