Cold Powder.....

The strong cold front to our North will continue to work its way down the coast today. Tomorrow it will push through the area bringing plenty of cold air and a period of heavy snow. Behind the front we should be able to make snow around the clock all weekend.

Not much has changed with the amount of precip expected from this storm for Friday. By Friday night I am expecting 2-4 inches in the Village, 3-6 inches at the base lodge and 4-8 inches at the summit. Temperatures will be cold so this will be a light snow. Friday night temperatures drop into the teens so any leftover snow showers will add and inch or two of super light powder.

Things begin to clear out on Saturday and Sunday but highs won't make it out of the 20's. That means around the clock snowmaking will be possible. It's quieter and slightly warmer into the 40's for Monday and Tuesday ahead of the next stronger storm working its way towards us for Wednesday and Thursday. Models have been hinting at the possibility the storm splits. Let's hope that is not the case. If it holds together it should be the biggest storm so far this season.

After that it looks like we may have one more storm for the following weekend before things quiet down for little while to start December.

Stay tuned......BA
