Update 7 PM:

Precip with the first wave has been slow to push inland.  Latest model runs this afternoon show a bit more subtropical moisture being pulled into the first wave.  That could keep snow levels around 500 ft higher tonight into Saturday than the previous forecast before they come down Saturday night into Sunday.

The snow levels are currently around 7500 ft but with spotty light precip of no significance.  We may see the levels come down a little tonight with the heavier precip but it’s wait and see game at this point.  That forecast is for 3-6 inches tonight above 7500 ft with 6-9 inches along the crest above 8000 ft.

Saturday the snow levels stay high before coming down Saturday night into Sunday down near lake level.  We could see another 10-15 inches above 7500 ft. through by Sunday morning and 15-20 inches above 8000 ft. along the crest.  Below that 6-10 inches in the 6500-7500 ft range with 3-6 inches possible at lake level depending on how fast the snow levels come down to lake level Sat night.

Sunday into Sunday night we could see 3-6 more inches above 7000 ft. with a couple more inches at lake level.  That still brings the totals on the mountains up to to 18-27 inches with up to 3 ft. along the crest by Monday morning, but above 7500 ft.  Between 6500-7500 ft. the snowfall will be a little more tricky with the fluctuating snow levels but we should be in the 6-18 inch range with up to 6 inches at lake level.

Another update in the morning. BA

From This Morning:

No changes to the forecast this morning.  Going to let the forecast from yesterday ride as it still looks good.  Snow and rain beginning to push in this morning with snow levels around 7000 ft.

We may see the snow levels come down a little this morning before going back up near 7000 ft. later today into Saturday.  Then they should come back down Saturday night into Sunday.
