December 1, 2014

    Another great day Sunday, November 30, 2014.

    Snow guns are pumping out some high quality snow.

    Looking towards Cowboy Ridge.

    Should have a track down here soon.

    Sun going down Saturday at 15:45 Sunday. Official sunset was at 16:15.

    As of 07:00 hrs this am we have high cloud and unlimited visibility.

For the forecast, cold dry conditions in a Northwest flow aloft will continue today into Wednesday. A very weak trough to the Northwest will spill cloud into the area today.  On Tuesday/Wednesday mostly sunny conditions will prevail with the threat of minimum cloud development. Still looks like some cloud will move in on Thursday with some snow flurries in the evening. Light snow for Friday is a good possibility. Freezing levels will slowly moderate and rise to 1600 meters by Wednesday evening. This trend will continue into Thursday with limits hovering around 1800 meters.


    Interior high still dominating, with some cloud moving in from a weak trough to the Northwest.



   We will likely see very light snow out of this model for Friday.


    Surface High is dominating the weather pattern until at least Wednesday.

    Satellite image from Yesterday afternoon.

    The big picture shows moisture in the Pacific. Should see some snow by Friday.
