Spring has arrived just in time for the spring break riders this week. Sunny skies and temps around 50 degrees on the mountain through Sunday. Temps at lake level and in Truckee will be close to 60 degrees. A storm hitting the Pacific NW on Wednesday will only bring wind and knock the temps down a couple degrees.
A new ridge will be forming in the Eastern Pacific towards the end of the week. North winds on the East side may drive colder air down from Canada later in the weekend. Models are catching on to the idea of storms coming under the ridge into CA next week. Some show it beginning as early as Monday while others hold off until mid-week. Confidence will build the next couple of days if the models continue to show a strong series of storms hitting CA. Hoping to get at least 3 good storms the last week of the month. This pattern change is still not a sure bet so stay tuned. BA
