Skies are partly cloudy and weak storm system is will bring some isolated showers this morning. Thing should clear out after noon but we;ll see blustery NW winds in the 15-25 mph range. Temps will be in the low 20's. A strong ridge builds over the weekend with what looks like a more active pattern next week.
Last Sunday's storm brought 8"-10" to the mountains. I haven't been down since last weekend but will be headed down today. Conditions remain thin but the last storm has been a big help. A weak layer of loose, sugary snow exists at the base of the snowpack. This layer exists on northerly aspects above about 9500' and is providing an extremely unstable base for the current snow load. Check back tomorrow for a full report.
