It was -22 degrees this morning at 6 a.m. at the Truckee Airport. Not quite that cold but below zero here at the base of Squaw this morning as well. After 13 inches of snow Thursday through Saturday the conditions are soft and cold this morning.
Squaw Valley picked up another 5 inches on the mountain in the past 24 hours. That brings the 2 day storm total to a foot of snow.
We picked up 7 inches as of the 5 a.m. measurements and the snow is still falling.
A very cold airmass is about to blast in with the cold front tonight.
The North end of the lake only picked up a dusting yesterday as the system slid a bit West and South of the area.
Temperatures are warming up pretty quickly this morning ahead of the storm approaching the coast, especially in the higher elevations. We will see sun and then some clouds today with temperatures up into the 30's to near 40. It is going to be a beautiful day on the slopes except for winds up top increasing to 30 mph and gusts to 45.
Dry and cold weather continues through Saturday. The systems are continuing to split off the coast causing all of the precip to stay to our North.
Happy New Year! The cold and dry pattern continues today as we wake up to single digit temperatures this morning. The sun will stick around through the end of the week and the cold will moderate slightly. Temperatures at the base will go up into the 30's starting today and then near 40 for the weekend.
Another inch of snow fell on the mountain in the past 24 hours from the very light snow showers.
We will have clouds today with a few flakes floating around. We may see some sun peek out later in the day.
Starting off with a cold morning here in Squaw Valley. We will see some sun and clouds today as a cut-off low spins down the CA coast. The track of the low pressure continues to be further offshore meaning less snowfall over the Sierra. We could see 1-2 inches tonight from snow showers and then tomorrow a few flakes with a dusting possible.
