Let it Snow Let it Snow Let It Snow

The Parade of Storms continues. Recommended ski days are Sunday and Wednesday/Christmas Eve. But if you are looking for fresh powder, then think about Tuesday and Friday.
A cold dry airmass pushed in on Friday night and Saturday morning, with 6 inches reported Saturday noon at Powderhorn. After a cold saturday night (dropping below zeroF), Sunday should be a lovely day on the ski trails, with afternoon temperatures climbing into the 20s.
Monday-Tuesday: SW winds get gusty again early Monday, really gusty at Powderhorn. Light snowfall is possible through the day, probably lighter than the current NWS forecast with the best snowfall at the Ward Lake trails. The cold front passes Monday night bringing 12-18 inches of new by Tuesday evening.
A moist southwest flow brings light snowfall on Thursday, that will continue on Christmas Day. The next cold front passes Christmas night for more snowfall in the valleys, and another foot or so on the trails by late Friday.  More storminess is possible next weekend.
