The Dig Out………
Resorts picked up another 14-24 inches in the past 24 hours. That brings the 5 day storm total to 8-10 feet on top of most of the resorts. The few resorts on the East side of the lake picked up around 7 feet. 4-6 feet was being reported at lake level yesterday so we should be in the 5-7 foot range with the foot of snow that fell in the past 24 hours. I will update the Reader Reports later when I get back from testing the conditions.
Snow will become showery today with only a few more inches expected as the main low rotates inland. May be able to add 3-6 inches tomorrow morning to whatever the resorts reported early this morning. Then tomorrow through Tuesday we should see the sun with cold temps with highs in the 20′s.
A slow moving cold low moves down the coast starting the middle of the week. This will bring a return of snow starting some time between Wednesday and Thursday, and lasting into the weekend. Current models are throwing out liquid amounts of 2-3 inches and snow ratios on the mountains will be 20:1. It’s too early to make an accurate prediction, but it looks as if we will pick up somewhere in the 2-5 foot range over the 2-4 day period if the storm stays on the current projected track. Models tend to increase amounts as these kinds of storms get closer as we learned with this storm.
The pattern stays favorable for some stronger storms going into the first week of March as the PNA stays negative and the ridge is out at 160w. BA
