Some Colder Air for the Weekend and Then a Chance for Snow

We have some colder air in place for the weekend with highs in the 30's and plenty of sun. Then a chance for some snow on Tuesday.

The ridge is building in over the West keeping storms from entering the country over the next few days. Then on Tuesday a storm approaches the coast and the ridge may break down enough to allow the storm to reach the Sierra before splitting.

Right now the forecast models are split on the storm making it to the Sierra. If the storm reaches us it looks like we could pick up several inches of snow, so we will watch the trend over the weekend.

After that the quiet weather builds back in and then towards the end of the week it looks like storms may begin to move into the West Coast again. Right now it looks like the storms may stay to our North but plenty of time for that to change.

With the great snow making this season, 5 feet of snow 2 weeks ago, and the fresh dusting on Wednesday the conditions are as good as we could hope for.  Keep your fingers crossed that we can add some more fresh snow next week.  BA
