Lots of snow on the way for the mountain starting tomorrow.
Not a lot of changes from yesterday with the biggest change being the amount of moisture that the first storm is picking up and is going to bring inland on Saturday. Also, the trend is a little further South again for Monday and Tuesday with the jetstream.
The precip should start as light snow as the atmosphere moistens lowering the snow levels on Friday. Friday night into Saturday the snow levels will come up above base level and by Saturday morning we could see up to 6 inches at the summit.
Heavier precip moves in Saturday and then possibly a break later in the day into the evening. At the base the snow levels could be fluctuating a little with some rain mixing in.
Saturday night into Sunday morning a burst of heavier snow arrives with the cold front and snow falling well below the base level. We could see 6-9 inches at the base with up to another foot at the summit by Sunday morning. That brings the 2 day totals to 18 inches up top.
Then we'll have to see which forecast model verifies for Mon-Tue. If some are right then we could be dry until next Wed. If others verify then we could see several more inches above 7000 ft. Mon-Tue and another foot along the crest. We will be on the South side so snow levels will come back up a little.
There is agreement that we could see a quick shot of snow at the end as a cold front tries to push the precip further South next Wed, and that Thanksgiving should be dry. Not much agreement beyond that. The Northeast Pacific looks to remain active through the end of the month and the PNA negative. We could see another storm the weekend after Thanksgiving and another before the end of the month. A much improved start over last season! BA
