Wet and Cold…
The snow levels were slow to come down last night as they didn’t come below 8000 ft. until early this morning. That kept accumulating snow off most of the mountains until today. Kirkwood was reporting 2 inches this morning but they go above 9000 ft. at the summit.
The snow levels came down all day and the snow even mixed in around lake level this afternoon. It was snowing pretty hard over Donner Summit and the crest. Sugarbowl reported a couple of inches during the day today and looking at some resorts cams it looked like a few inches up top on the mountains.
The precip has cleared out now as the temps continue to fall. The slower falling snow levels and quick end to precip once they fell kept potential accumulations down a little. Tonight temps will drop into the 20′s and they are already there on the mountains.
Temps at night this weekend and next week will stay just above freezing, so no freeze/thaw cycle. Not the best corn snow season this year. Tems at lake level will be up into the 60′s this weekend through next week so Spring is setting in for a while. Storms will hit the Pacific NW next week but should stay well to our North.
Looks kind of boring weather wise for now. Will take a look at the final snow totals in the morning. BA
