Good morning!

This is going to be quick, because I’m powder-crazed.

The snow level is around 2000’ right now, with flurries and sunbreaks on the slopes. Temps will hold today. Winds will be W 30-35 early, going to SW 20-25 by 2pm. Total snowfall today will be 1-3” during the day.

Tomorrow looks great, with heavy snowfall starting tonight and continuing through noon, becoming moderate after that through midnight or a little later. Total water value will be 1-1.5” for 12-16” of new with the snow level at a happy 1000-2000’. Wind will be SW 30-40 early, going to W 20-25 by 11am and WNW 10-15 by 4pm.

Thursday looks partly cloudy with snow flurries and 1-3” of new. The freezing level will be around 1000’ early, rising to 3000’ in the warmest part of the day. Wind will be NW 15-20.

Friday looks clear with high temps in the low to mid thirties with light wind.

Windsurfing or kiting in the eastern Gorge looks okay today with gusty 23-28 in the afternoon east of Doug’s. Tomorrow brings gusty 17-20 in the eastern Gorge.

Have a great day today!
