Gorgeous weather has infiltrated the region today and will continue for much of this week with temps climbing above normal and spring skiing conditions developing. Strong jet to our north may occasionally bring high clouds over the next 5 days but no chance for snow. Temps will be warm, skiing will be fun! Got several reports that the skiing in PC was awesome yesterday with some saying it seemed even deeper than the 6-8″ reported.
Some good news to report in the long-term. The models have been in limbo trying to decided how to handle a potential pattern change taking shape for next weekend. The GFS is finally starting to find some run-to-run consistency and it is showing a potentially decent system for next Sunday (17th) with the potential for additional systems beyond that. Still too early to start ringing the powder alert alarm bells, but at least some good news to report. Last night’s run of the ECMWF also showed the system but kept it slightly farther north than the GFS. Waiting for the 12z Euro to come in to see if it follows the GFS.
Don’t put away the heavy jacket and powder skis just yet…
