A Chance for a Little Snow Late Week

We will have a very active weather pattern to our North this week.  We will be right on the Southern edge of the storm track which means we could see a few flakes up top from the storms pushing by. The best chance will be on Friday with the storm dipping a bit further South.

For the most part this week the weather will be nice with highs in the 40's and lows in the 20's at night allowing for snowmaking at the bottom.  There will be inversions up top with temperatures above freezing. 

Next week there are 2 storms hitting to our North, one on Tuesday and the other on Friday.  The first storm looks like it could brush us with a few flakes and the second storm for Friday looks like it could bring some measurable precip, maybe a few inches of snow. 

The forecast models are struggling with the pattern in the long-range.  Some of the runs bring the storm track further South the second half of next week and bring several storms into the second week of January.  Other models keep the storms to our North a bit longer and then shifting the ridge back away from the coast and brining some colder storms in from the Northwest the second week of January.

Either way the pattern should continue to be more active and we will get some bigger storms in here in January.  We will continue to watch and keep you updated on the first chance for a big dump.  BA
