Weak Systems Thursday - Saturday, Mild Sunday

Category: Weather
Weak Thursday Storm:

A weak system moving through Thursday - Thursday night will bring light rain & snow showers.  Snow levels up around 7,000 feet, maybe lowering to the base Thursday night.   We could see a coating to an inch of snow on the mountain above 7,000 feet.  Highs in the 30's on the upper mountain and 40's at the base.  Ridgetop winds gusting to 40+ mph.

Fast Moving Storm Friday:

Another system will push through quickly Friday afternoon/evening.  Snow levels could start around 6,500 feet and then fall to the base.  Above 7,000 feet we could see 1-3 inches of snow by Saturday morning, and a coating to an inch at the base.  Ridgetop winds gusting to 60+ mph could affect upper mountain lift operations.  Highs in the 30's.

We could see a break Saturday morning before a final wave moving through Saturday afternoon/evening could bring a final round of showers.  A final coating to an inch of snow is possible on the upper mountain.  Snow levels up around 7,500 feet.  Expecting lighter winds Saturday.  Highs in the 30's on the upper mountain and 40's at the base.

Mild Sunday:

High pressure builds in briefly on Sunday with partly sunny skies expected.  Temperatures could quickly warm into the 50's for highs.

Long-Range:

The next storm could push in by Monday afternoon and last into Tuesday morning.  We will be watching this system closely as the forecast models have been trending wetter with it.  We could see several inches of snow on the mountain Monday night.  

After a quick break on Wednesday, we could see a cold trough could drop down the West Coast starting next Thursday through the weekend of the 13th.  We could see colder temperatures and a chance for snow showers each day.

The cold trough could hang around into the beginning of the week of the 15th with additional storms possible.  Then there are signs that high pressure could build in later that week bringing us a drier pattern.
