As of this morning Squaw has picked up over 3 feet up top this week. The snow levels dropped overnight and it snowed hard all the way down to the base today. We will have snow totals in the morning but at least a foot of snow fell today up top.
We picked up another 16 inches since Tuesday morning bringing the storm total so far this week to 22 inches, and the snow keeps falling with no end in sight.
We saw a couple inches of snow up top this morning from a weak system that pushed through. That will be a distant memory as a trough is about to setup off the coast streaming continuous moisture into the Sierra starting Monday night. It will easily be the biggest week of snow so far this season.
Big Change for Tuesday as the mild air is replaced by cold air and we could see 4-8 inches of snow on the mountain. The snow should be falling by the time the lifts are turning Tuesday morning. The cold front will bring a quick burst of snow as it moves through with colder air behind it. Highs will only be in the 20s and 30s.
On Sunday I was thinking 3-4 feet for the week including the Monday storm. It now looks like we will pick up 3-4 feet the next 2 days on top of the Monday storm. As the storm approaches the coast the amount of moisture it will deliver continues to bump up on the forecast models.
Clouds are already on the increase from a weak storm that will move through on Monday. There is not much moisture with this system but the cold air associated with it will help to fluff the totals. Expecting 1-3 inches at the base and 2-4 inches up top by Monday night.
The cold for the weekend has been well advertised as we will drop into the 20's and 30's for highs through next week and teens at night. That doesn't do much for us this weekend as the wind tonight into Saturday will be howling as if we are getting a big storm but at most we will get a flake or two. It will make for some cold wind chills on Sa
Squaw Valley picked up 7 more inches Tuesday night into Wednesday morning bringing the 3 day total to 14 inches. We have a break with some nice weather through Friday before a couple weak systems will push through over the weekend.
We picked up 7 inches from the storm that moved through Sunday night into Monday. We won't have much of a break as the next storm moves in Tuesday night. This is a compact little storm dropping down from the North and it will bring more cold and a quick shot of snow.
The snow began falling on the mountain this evening and will continue overnight and through the day on Monday. The storm will be bringing in colder air and up to a foot of fluffy snow on the mountain.
