Winter Returns With Cold and Snow for Tuesday

The mild weather will once again be interupted this week by a strong cold front.  The only difference with this one is that it won't be bringing feet of snow like last week's, but several inches.  The snow will start early Tuesday moring and should be mostly done by afternoon.  No change in the snowfall forecast today. 

Expecting 1-3 inches in the Village, 2-4 inches at the base lodge, and 3-6 inches up top by Tuesday afternoon.

Then the ridge moves back in for quiet weather into the weekend.  There will be a storm moving into the Pacific NW over the weekend but the precip should stay to our North and the front will help to move the ridge.  Meanwhile the another ridge is building Northwest of Hawaii and that could mean a long-wave trough sets up off the West coast next week.

That could mean several storms next week and the only question right now is how far South the heaviest precip will come.  The forecast models are in remarkably good agreement again today for a stormy pattern setting up for next week.  Right now the biggest precip chances look to be around Tuesday and Thursday of next week.  Another snowy week coming? BA
