A Few More Storms on the Way

We saw some quieter weather this week after the big storms last week.  That will change this weekend as a more active weather pattern moves back in bring several chances for snow the next 10 days.

The first storm this weekend is still giving the forecast models trouble. They were starting to agree this morning and then diverged again this afternoon. Some bring the snow in as early as Saturday afternoon while other hold it off until Sunday night. There is not much pushing this storm forward so we may just have to watch to see how it progresses on Saturday.

Overall there is agreement that the storm will push through by Monday with total snowfall of around 3-6 inches on the mountains and maybe up to 9 up top.

The next storm is not far behind and will move in Tuesday-Wednesday. Some forecast models show this storm bringing a couple feet of snow while other models show amounts more in the 6-12 inch range. Either way we'll take it and we'll keep watching the trend over the next few days.

A much colder storm looks like it will move in next Friday-Saturday bringing a decent shot of snow. Way too early to make a snowfall forecast but right now it looks like it could be in the foot plus range. Overall it looks like we will remain in an active weather pattern for the next two weeks with several chances for fresh snowfall.  BA
