A front will be moving through to our North tonight into Friday morning. The precip from this front will stay to our North. A low coming into SoCal tomorrow will increase instability in the atmosphere. We may see some thunderstorms or light rain showers.
The temperatures will stay in the 60's at the base and 50's on the mountain through Monday. The sun returns for the weekend. By Sunday the ridge is way out in the Pacific around 160w. That will allow a cold low pressure and trough to dig down along the West Coast from the Gulf of Alaska.
The forecast models are in agreement in showing a cold front approaching Monday night into Tuesday morning. We could see a few inches of snow on the mountain with the front. Temeperatures on the mountain will drop into the 30's Tuesday into Wednesday behind the cold front. We could see scatterend snow showers around into Wednesday.
Total snowfall amounts on the latest runs could be 3-6 inches on the mountain, possibly slightly more if the main low drops down closer to us on Wednesday. We will continue to watch the trend on snowfall amounts as we get closer. The snow levels will be below base level.
The ridge looks like it will stay out near 160w through the end of next week which should keep the storm door open. Models are showing another trough digging down the West Coast towards the end of the week with snow possible into the weekend of the 25th.
We may still have another powder day or two before closing day.
