Daily Snow Stake
Spring Break/March Calendars
We posted our spring break forecast, thru April 1st on yesterday’s blog, in calendar format. It is pretty simple to use, the dark blue squares are probable storms, and the light blue squares are 60% chance, meaning if we have enhanced teleconnectivity, there will be extra waves, or more snow!
All Snow GFS
We have a massive storm in Lake Tahoe. This system gets cut-off from the main energy and will dump in southern California resorts until it reconnects to the flow Sunday. It will then move through Utah overnight Saturday and reach Colorado Sunday.
A second system is sliding down the coast from the Gulf of Alaska as I type, it will hit the Pacific Northwest Sunday evening, and continue sliding down the coast and hit the Lake, after a small break in the action Saturday night.
Strongest part of the storm started last night and will continue today. Strong winds today, as usual, with 20-30 mph with 40 mph gusts. Upper mountains wind gusts in the 50’s and 60’s. Snow continues for the foreseeable future, with a small break between storms likely overnight Sunday.
Snow continues with moderate to strong winds between 15-25 mph, gusts around 30. Stronger winds, between 20-30 mph with gusts as high as 55 mph, along the divide, and the San Juans. Temperatures will be in the low to mid 20’s, but with that wind, it will feel like it’s -15 to -20. Stack on the layers.
Next Storm Sunday
The storm moves out this morning. The skies will clear by this afternoon and be partly cloudy. Base level high temps today in the upper teens, with moderate winds between 15-20 mph. Wind chills near zero.
