Forecast Summary

The storm exits this morning in Utah, with a couple-three more inches before it departs.  There are a few spots in Colorado, that have some accumulation this morning, as the storm moves in.  

The next system arrives overnight tonight for Lake Tahoe.  That storm moves northeast, as the energy from the bottom of the Low-Pressure spins counterclockwise.  You can see the system spinning of the California coast below.


Snow overnight tonight with 1-3 possible for Crystal, Mt Baker and Stevens Pass.  Temperatures will be in the low 20’s, both today and tomorrow, with moderate winds.


No accumulation expected today or tomorrow as the next wave moves in tomorrow night.  Expect temperatures to be in the mid 20’s with moderate winds.  Saturday night, expect a 2-4 for Mt Hood before the lifts begin Sunday morning.  Sunday, another 2-4 throughout the day and evening.  


Today will be beautiful at the Lake.  Bluebird skies, temperatures in the low 30’s and calm winds.  The next system moves in on Saturday, mid-morning.  The wind will pick up with gusts around 25 mph–low for Tahoe standards.  I’m expecting 4-6 during the day with another 6-10 overnight, for Kirkwood, Sugar Bowl and PalisadesMammoth looks to be in the bullseye for this storm.  Expect 8-10 Saturday and another 10-12 overnight.  


The storm rolls early this morning.  Today will be cold with a northwest wind gusting around 30 mph.  Wind chills will be near zero.  The next system moves in Saturday night.


Winter Storm Warnings for Colorado until 2 o’clock today as heavy snow will fall adding 4-6 for Vail, Beaver Creek and Aspen, with a general 2-4 for the other resorts.  Temperatures are on the warm side, around freezing at 8,000 ft with strong winds with gusts around 50 mph.   For Powderhorn and the southern mountains Telluride and Silverton, expect 1-3.

A small wave will come through on Saturday that may add an additional 2-3 inches, in the afternoon.  Expect calm winds and continued warm temps.
