It's a balmy -9 this morning. We picked up another 5 inches in the past 24 hours bringing the storm total to 20 inches, and the 6 day total to 2 feet.
We picked up 15 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! With the cold unstable air and moisture in the air we should see snow showers most of the day.
December 26, 2012 is the last storm we had that dropped 1-2 feet on the mountain. Almost a year ago! Not too many changes this morning other than to slow the storm down with an onset later this evening.
Not too many changes to the forecast over the past 24 hours. Still not total agreement amoung the forecast models on total precip amounts for this storm.
A cold morning this morning down near 0 degrees at the base. Great weather for snowmaking on top of the 4 inches we picked up from yesterday's storm.
The cold front has slowed a little overnight. As of this morning we have picked up an inch of snow overnight on the mountain but it continues to snow. Forecast models trimmed back total precip forecasts overnight.
The biggest change to the forecast is slowing down the progression of the cold front as it move through on Tuesday. Since the cold front is the main producer of the snowfall that would prolong the snowfall slightly and increase amounts slightly.
Temperatures on Monday may hit 50 degrees but the winds will be starting to pick up ahead of the cold front. Cold low pressure will be working its way down the coast Canadian coast on Monday but then it moves inland over the Pacific NW on Tuesday.
The picture is becoming clearer on what we will see to start next week. Say goodbye to temperatures in the 40's and 50's as highs behind the cold front Tuesday will keep us in the 20's the rest of the week.
Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you are all out enjoying the day with friends and family. I won't bore you too longe today.
