Thursday December 7th,2023 – 8:00am
Awaiting more snowfall to open for the 23/24 season, our mountain is currently closed. As of 8 am this morning, we’ve seen 3-4 inches of fresh snow at the summit, accompanied by a playful dusting of 1 inch at the base in the last 24 hours. This brings our season’s total to an encouraging 15 inches. Stay tuned for updates as we eagerly prepare for an exciting winter ahead!
Current temp at the base (6,600ft) 27º
This storm will continue to bring some stringy bands of snow showers draping over the central and northern Sierra early this morning. Otherwise, we will see an overall lull in precipitation through late morning between systems.
The second wave, accompanied by another band of precipitation, will arrive late morning, spreading into the northern and central Sierra through the afternoon. This wave will be much less dynamic in comparison to the system that passed through yesterday, so much lighter precipitation is expected. Snow levels will be much lower this round, with snow levels between 5,000-5,500 feet. However, the heaviest snowfall is expected in the northern and central Sierra, with an additional 4-10″ inches possible along the crest.
As this system exits the region tonight, expect precipitation to quickly taper off this evening, with skies clearing overnight. Clearing skies and northerly flow prevailing behind the existing system will lead to quite frigid temperatures for Friday morning. Lows are expected to bottom out in the low 20ºs for western Nevada valleys and single digits to teens for Sierra locations.
