    Awesome morning May 2, 2015. Blue skies with some cloud to the North.

    Bike Park opens with a large crowd.

    Lineup for biking was larger than for snow riding.

    Convective clouds eventually developed later in the morning.

    Still some great conditions in the Alpine.

    Full moon is tonight.

    Sunset last night was at 20:31 Hours.

For the forecast, high pressure will bring sunny weather to the area again today with little chance of any convective cloud development. The freezing level will rise to 2500 meters in a warm West to Northwest onshore flow. Monday morning will start out as an unsettled day with some cloud development increasing as the day progresses, by the evening we will see a West to Southwest onshore flow, light precipitation and the FL dropping to around 1500 meters. Tuesday will be a cloudy day with light precipitation as the low pushes a trough through the area with showery cool weather into Wednesday. The FL could drop to as low as 1200 meters on Tuesday night. Wednesday is looking unsettled as the ridge rebuilds into Thursday. Guesstimates: 5-10 cm of snow above 1500 meters on Tuesday morning, 3-5 cm of snow above 1300 meters on Wednesday morning.

    Flow for the next couple of days.

    High pressure keeping the low at bay.

    Front moves in on Monday evening.

    Cooler temperatures and light-moderate precipitation for Monday night into early Tuesday am.

    Cloudy with light precipitation for Tuesday.
