Northstar picked up 12 inches in the last 24 hours, which is about double what was forecasted. The increased snowfall was due to the heavier snow coming further South and temps staying colder than expected which fluffed up the totals. Conditions today are mid January powder conditions. Northstar is now only 4 inches shy of 4 feet for the week, and only 13 inches short of 400 inches on the season which should be picked up tomorrow.
We get a brief break today before the final storm in the series moves in tomorrow. The storm is looking faster now with the jet sending the heaviest snow to our South, so precip looks to be less than was thought a few days ago. The storm will be very cold for this time of year though with snow levels around 3000 ft. This will help to bring decent snow totals out of the liquid we have to work with. Looking for 8-12 inches in the Village with 12-18 inches above 7000 ft. by the time the snow ends Monday morning. This will be very very light and fluffy snow for an amazing powder day on Monday.
It stays cold on Tuesday as we dry out. Temps begin to warm back into the 40's the rest of the week with sun. A storm will be approaching the coast by next weekend. Models are all over the place with what happens with the storm. It could stall off the coast, stall over us, or just move right through. Either way we look to get some snow next weekend at some point. Storminess will continue into the following week. BA
