The mean ridge position is off the coast and will retrograde out to around 150w by Thursday. A system is going to move into British Columbia and the Pacific NW Friday. The latest runs of all the forecast models have us on the Southern edge of this system. We should see some clouds Friday and we could see some light precip with mostly rain and high snow levels. Amounts look very light if we do see some rain showers.
Then we clear out for the weekend with highs back into the 50's on the mountain. The ridge stays out near 150w and a trough looks like it will try to dig down the West Coast next Tuesday-Wednesday. The forecast model runs have been fairly consistent in showing a cold system pushing in with this trough with snowfall for the mountains. Not a big system but maybe some accumulating snow on the mountain. This system is only 7 days out now so we will have to start watching more closely.
The storm door may stay open through the end of next week with the ridge remaining well off the West Coast. The long-range of the model runs does show the potential for another system towards the end of next week. This one is definitely low confidence being more than a week out.
Squaw and Alpine are going to be open through the 27th so there is still a chance we see another day or 2 of fresh snow to track out. Alpine may stay open weekends into May. So fingers crossed we can see a little more snow before the end of the ski season.
