The initial snow band pushed through last night between 8 p.m. and midnight and then another around 4 a.m. Combined they dropped 6 inches on the mountain overnight. The snow has tapered off this morning but will pick back up later this morning and should continue into the evening. Expecting another 6-9 inches on the mountain today. Tonight the snow becomes showery with only another inch or two expected. That should bring storm totals to 12-15 inches on the mountain by Thursday morning.
The GFS forecast model this morning is still the furthest South with the moisture plume Friday. It keeps snow showers going on the mountain Thursday through Friday, with heavier snowfall pushing in Friday night. Some of the other models show snow showers Thursday but have more of a break Thursday night into Friday, with light snowfall returning Friday night. We will have to watch closely how the moisture feed sets up.
Friday night the precip does push closer on all of the forecast models with snow levels rising near 7000 ft. ahead of the cold front. Heavier snowfall looks to push in Saturday ahead of the front with snow levels dropping to the base by Saturday afternoon as the cold front moves through. Then lingering snow showers behind the front Saturday night. Up to a foot of additional snow could fall at the base with up to 2 feet up top. The 5 day forecast for High Camp is looking pretty nice.
Then a break on Sunday, but the GFS model on the 6z run this morning showed another wave of light precip keeping the snow showers going Sunday. Will have to watch that. The other forecast models still show the break into Monday morning. Then the next system moves in later in the day Monday with snowfall lingering into Tuesday. This is a cold system but not overly moist. We should see several more inches on the mountain. We could have 7 day totals of 3-4 feet by next Wednesday on the mountain.
It looks like we could see a break next Wednesday before another system may push in Thursday into Friday. Still fairly good consensus that the weekend of the 5th the trough is further offshore with a ridge along the West Coast and dry conditions. Then most of the long-range ensembles are still showing a trough digging along the West Coast the week of the 7th with the potential for more storms.
