It's a beautiful crisp morning in Squaw Valley with lots of sun and fresh snow on the ground. The mountain picked up 2 feet of snow Thursday through Saturday and the snow guns are still firing on Red Dog as of this morning.
We are in the middle of a break in the storms to start this week. We will see some high clouds from the storms to our North, but the current trough pushing down the West Coast is splitting and we will stay dry through Thursday with highs in the 40's.
The splitting trough will form a low pressure cut off from the jetstream that will spin off the coast this week. On Friday, the next storm moving our way will help to push the low pressure inland. Expecting only some light snow showers on Friday as it moves inland.
The next storm behind it is of interest. This one could pull in some subtropical moisture and bring quite a bit of moisture. We will have to keep watching this week to see the trend in the forecast models on how much moisture this storm can pull in.
The current forecast models vary but do show moisture being pushed into the area as early as next Sunday, with the heavier precip coming on Monday and Tuesday. This system does have the potential to bring a decent amount of snow right before opening day so we will be monitoring it.
Currently it looks like we will have fair weather for Thanksgiving before more storms are possible beyond that. Check back for continued weather updates.
