The precip is pushing into Northern CA this morning and it looks like it could reach us after midnight. Then heavy snow is expected through day on Saturday.
The snow fell most of the day yesterday and overnight dropping another 13 inches at High Camp. That brings the 36 hour storm total to 19 inches. Scattered snow showers are still falling today and should continue along the crest, possibly into Friday.
The initial snow band pushed through last night between 8 p.m. and midnight and then another around 4 a.m. Combined they dropped 6 inches on the mountain overnight.
There are no changes in the thinking on the system moving in tomorrow lasting into Thursday morning. The snow could begin falling on the mountain by late morning tomorrow.
A cold trough approaches the West Coast on Tuesday with snow showers pushing in on the mountain as early as Tuesday morning. Several waves bring in light snow through Thursday.
Sunny weather will continue through Monday before we see the first storm move in Tuesday.
We are waiting for a pattern change next week that looks more likely each day.
A system that moved through the Pacific NW overnight helped to break down the West Coast ridge. The winds up high are still a little gusty.
The ridge over CA is going to break down and a ridge will form out in the Pacific around 140-150w.
The ridge is sitting along the West Coast and we will see lots of sun and mild temps through the weekend.
