Wintry Mix This Week and Next

Category: Weather
Cold Through Wednesday

Colder air is moving in today with highs only in the 20's on the mountains and near freezing at lake level. We could see a snow shower this afternoon as the front moves through. Winds will be gusting in excess of 50 mph on the mountain tops. Cold air is in place Wednesday and then light snow breaks out Wednesday night ahead of the next storm.  We could see a few inches of snow on the mountain Wednesday night.

Mixed Bag

Heavier precip arrives Thursday with snow levels rising above 8000 feet by afternoon. We could see a few more inches of snow from mid-mountain and up before the changeover.  Snow levels may rise above the Summit by late afternoon.

Lighter precip Thursday night into Friday.  Snow levels will lower back around 8000 feet.  We could see a few more inches above that.

Another wave moves in Friday night into Saturday. Snow levels may briefly rise above 8000 feet again and then fall to base level by Saturday morning. We could see 3-6 inches with this wave at the base, and 6-15 inches on the mountain.

A Break 

We may have a break Saturday night through Sunday night before another wet storm moves in Monday.  Highs should be in the 30's over the weekend. 

Next Big Storm

Starting next Monday another strong storm may move in.  We could see heavy precip Monday night through Tuesday night.  Snow levels rise above 8000 feet again Monday and stay there through Tuesday night.

A final wave may move through Wednesday bringing snow levels back to lake level with several inches possible.  

We have a lot of details that could change with these storms so stayed tuned.
