Quick Break

By Wednesday morning the precip may shift to our North through Wednesday night.  Winds continue to increase with ridge gusts reaching 100 mph by Wednesday night.

On Thursday heavy precip moves in ahead of a cold front.  Snow levels drop back near 8000 feet and possibly 7500 by the end of the day.  We could see several inches of snow above 8000 feet.  Thursday night the cold front moves through and snow levels crash below lake level.  We could see several inches at the base and 1-2 feet of snow on the mountain.  Friday we have left over scattered snow showers but we begin to clear out as colder air moves in.  

Extended Forecast

Sunny this weekend with highs only in the 20's.

Next week we should warm up and stay dry to start the week.  

Then the 2nd half of the week a trough may dig down the coast bringing a chance for snow by the end of the week.
