Another 3” of low water content snow was on my deck by this by 9am morning and should be the final deposit from this departing storm. Observations from the top of the Sunshine lift near Patrol Headquarters had just under 50” yesterday morning, and I expect that mark to be exceeded today.
A building ridge will produce moderating temperatures and dry weather through the weekend and likely most of next week. Weak waves do pass north of our area on Friday and again mid-week, but high clouds will likely be their only affect on our weather.
Models seem to be generally agreeing that the mid-week wave begins the process of moving the ridge eastward and allowing colder air to filter over the west coast. As is usually the case this far out, confidence is low, especially when the weather patterns are forecast to change significantly.
