Strong upper level ridge continues to block any moisture from arriving on the South Coast in a Northerly flow aloft. Mostly sunny skies into Saturday am with cooler temperatures. Snow making will be able to go back into production! No more inversion for now.  Precipitation will arrive by early next week with slightly warmer than desirable temperatures and will transition to above seasonable temperatures by opening day. Several weak storms will bring snow to the alpine and to mid station prior to Thursday. More storms with warmer temperatures will follow. Hopefully there will not be a pineapple express! Guesstimates: 0 mm into Sunday am., 0-2 mm by Monday am,  4-8 mm by Tuesday am. More on the amounts and freezing levels in Mondays post.
