Sunny and Mild this Week, Looking Much Colder Next Week

The ridge is still with us pushing the storm track up into Canada and keeping the weather tranquil.  Highs this week on the mountain will be in the 40's with lows in the 20's.  There will be some inversions so the snowmaking may be kept to the lower half of the mountain. 

The ridge sitting off the coast will move inland next week and then a new ridge will form further North in the Pacific towards the Gulf of Alaska.  That will allow some cooler air to move in from the North on Monday.  Then that ridge moves inland over Cananda towards the end of next week with a new ridge forming further North near Alaska.

The weather next week looks to stay quiet as the pattern change starts taking place over the Pacific.  Towards the end of next week and into the weekend we should see lots of cold start to pour in if the ridge sets up near Alaska.  We should also see the storms start to move in underneath the ridge.

We will continue to monitor the pattern change next week.  If everything goest right we could see a barage of storms from around the 14th into the third week of the month.  Stay tuned...BA
