Just a quick update on the storm for tomorrow night. Models have been pulling back on the amount of moisture and this storm has definitely been looking weaker over the past 24 hours. It also looks as if the heaviest precip could hold off until Thursday morning.

I would expect light snow on the mountains Wednesday night with the heaviest snow Thursday morning with the passage of the cold front. Total liquid would bring 3-6 inches above 7000 ft. and maybe a dusting to a couple of inches at lake level. It depends on when the heaviest snow falls. If the sun is up then there may not be any accumulation at lake level.

The unsettled weather looks to continue into the first week of May. We get a weak storm Sunday and again Monday that could bring a few inches to the mountains. Then a colder storm the second half of next week and some colder air. With the storms we will see temperature drops in the 30′s & 40′s but most days we should see highs in the 40′s and 50′s.

With the unsettled weather and cloud cover at night it will be hard to get the temperatures very cold. So for those of you trying to grow corn snow the conditions aren’t that great yet. The one cold night this week should be Thursday night behind the storm as lows drop into the 20′s. The rest of the week lows may only be in the 30′s.

Still watching the long-term for a sign of a nice stretch of dry weather and a warm-up but don’t see one yet. Should happen in May though. An update tomorrow on the Wednesday night storm. BA
