Wet Storm This Weekend, Then Colder Storms Next Week

Storm Totals

We picked up 30 more inches of snow in the past 24 hours up top and 16 inches at the base, bringing the 4 day total to 7 Feet up top!

A Break Thu - Fri

Colder air is moving in today with some lingering snow showers.  Only expecting light accumulations and highs only in the 20's. Winds are gusting to 40+ mph on the mountain tops.

The cold air sticks around Friday as the sun visits briefly.  The winds should lighten up in the morning before picking up again by Friday night.

Wet & Wild Weekend

Saturday a strong storm moves in with heavy precip.  We could see snow at the base to start and then snow levels quickly rise to 8000 feet by Saturday afternoon.  We could see 3-7 inches of snow on the mountain below 8000 feet before the change to rain.  Saturday night snow levels rise to 9000 feet, but we could see 5-8 inches of snow above 8000 feet before the change.

Sunday we have heavy rain with snow levels near to just above 9000 feet.  Later Sunday night into Monday the snow levels start to drop.  We could see 9-13 inches of snow Sunday night above 8000 feet after the change back to snow.  Then on Monday snow levels drop back to the base.  We could see 4-8 inches on the mountain Monday before the snow tapers off.

Colder Storms Next Week

More storms are lined up for next week with the first one moving in Tuesday-Wednesday and another Thursday-Friday.  These storms look colder and could bring significant snowfall.  We will update on the details of these storms as we get closer, but the overall pattern for the storms looks similar to what we saw with the significant snow the last 4 days.

Storms Could Continue

More storms may be behind those the weekend of the 14th.
