White Again....

Cold front held together pretty well last night dropping 4 inches of snow on Northstar overnight.  Temps today will be cold with highs in the 30s. Snow showers will linger off and on on the mountain today with little accumulation.

Another wave of moisture moves in tonight and could produce another 1-3 inches of snow. Temps tomorrow will stay cold with highs in the 30's again.

Temps rebound for the weekend back up into the 40's on Saturday and low 50's on Sunday. On Monday it should get windy as a big storm approaches from the Northwest.

On Tuesday the first of several storms hits us. These will be cold storms with all snow. A pretty strong storm on Tuesday will be followed by an even stronger storm on Wednesday. This morning's models show 4 back to back storms Tuesday through Sunday dropping several feet of snow. This has the potential to be up there with the big snow week in December and the one in January. If the storm tracks stay where they look to be right now we would see in excess of 4 feet of snow on the mountain next week.

It will be interesting to see what happens as we go into the middle of April as the PNA is forecasted to go positive and the MJO continues to strengthen. Could we see the jet come under the ridge into CA one more time? BA
