Good news, bad news….

Quick Monday Evening update:

Long range models are a little more promising tonight than they have been for some more potent systems trying to break down the high pressure ridge over the west coast toward the end of the month.  This time of year, it is common for models to underestimate the strength of the ridge so the storms may still be deflected north but it is a promising sign that we will keep an eye on.

Previous discussion:

10-day Snow Forecast: Little or no snow expected.

Good news, bad news situation as we are in for an extended period of beautiful fall weather but if you’re hoping for snowfall, that’s the bad news, none in sight.

A weak, fast-moving cold front moved through last night bringing a few showers, clouds and wind gusts.  It also cooled us off closer to normal.  The next week to ten days will include temps consistently hovering in the mid-60s to low-70s in the valley after recovering from today’s 60 degree high temp.

Only a slight chance of showers for us on Wednesday/Wed night with very light snow possible way above 9000 with no accumulation expected.

Long-range outlook: GFS still suggesting that heights will fall toward the end of the month that may allow for some more shortwaves to pass through…. it’s a very long way out so this is subject to change but it’s some light at the end of the tunnel if you’re hoping to get an early start to the ski-season.
