Picked 2 Inches Overnight

We woke up to 2 inches of fresh snow from the front that moved through in the early morning hours.  It left a nice little coating of snow to refresh the slopes.

The weather will be cool through the weekend with higs in the 30's and 40's on the mountain.  The next chance for some snow will be next Tuesday as a storm approaches the coast and starts to split as it hits the ridge of high pressure in place.  We will have to see how well the storm holds together to see if it can bring us several inches of fresh snow.

After that the forecast models are really struggling with the pattern.  Some suggest storms try to break through again for the end of next week.  Others suggest the weather gets quiet again into the following weekend.  We are monitoring the MJO which is an area of convection moving through teh Pacific along the equator.  As it progress East the substropical jet stream could tap its energy and break through storms under the ridge and into CA.

We will continue to keep tracking the possible storms for next week.  Stay tuned....BA
