The moisture continues to stream in off the Pacific and will do so through Monday. Models have increased the amount of liquid that will push in this afternoon through Saturday morning. It also looks a bit cooler through the weekend as well.
Latest model runs show .25-.5 inches of liquid by Saturday morning. That means we could see similar amounts of snow that we did with the Wednesday night storm. That would be 2-4 inches above 7000 ft. with 3-6 inches along the crest. Snow levels will be close to lake level but it won’t stick until maybe later tonight as the surfaces cool.
The moisture will back off Saturday afternoon through Sunday before another wave moves through Sunday night into Monday. This will be very light amounts of precip as well. The snow levels look a little higher up above 7000 ft. for this round of precip. Temperatures through the weekend will stay in the 40′s at lake level and the 30′s on the mountains.
Starting Tuesday it appears that the precip will stay North of us for the next week. The Pacific NW will be getting a series of storms and they will not be that far to our North. We should get a shot of cooler air on Thursday and Friday as the trough digs a little down the West coast. It won’t take much of a jog to the South for any one of the storms to bring us a little precip.
As we go through the first week of May the models are all over the place but it looks like we will stay fairly dry. Temperatures may finally warm up the second week of May if the ridge is able to amplify off the coast. Stay tuned…BA
