It’s snowing, and it’s going to keep snowing all day. Total water value today will be .75-1.0” for 9-12” of new snow, falling continuously during the day. The snow level will be 2000’ early, rising to 3000’ mid-afternoon. Winds will be SW 30-35 early dropping to SW 25-30 by 4pm.
Tomorrow brings a bit more snow. The snow level early will be 2000’, rising to 4000’ by 2pm. Winds will be NW 15-20 early rising to SW 10-15 by 2pm. We’ll see a total of .2-.3” of water value for 2” or so of new snow.
Tuesday looks snowy, with the snow level at 3000’ early rising to 3500’ by 4pm. Snow starts by 5am, and models are disagreeing on snow totals. Given a little orographic help, I think we’ll see .3-.4” of water value for 3-5” of new snow. Winds will be WSW 30-35 early, switching to NW 25-35 by 2pm.
The snow level overnight Tuesday climbs dramatically, hitting 8000’ or so by the morning. Models are still all over the place with rainfall and wind, but at this point, it looks like we’ll see a small amount of precip with a large amount of NW wind (35-45mph).
I’m headed to Crystal for the next couple of days with a friend, so I’m probably not going to be doing a forecast. Vacation, baby!
Have a great day today!
