Yes. I am seeing wet for tomorrow, Friday. Saturday is now trending cooler than earlier predictions, but I am still seeing 44 at Platty for a high. I'll be there. Sunday is cool again 33 with a chance for flurries.
Forecast for Gore and WF is horrible. Back to Jan and feb. lots of rain Wednesday then will bebelow freezing for many nights and just at or barely above freezing during the days including sat sun. Glacier express returns for our surfaces. Sad.
Yes......unless some hints and forecasts I’m seeing for measureable snow Friday into Saturday (for the ADKs, at least) prove to have some merit. Otherwise, looks like a shitty spring skiing forecast for the next 10 days. No major melt downs....but cold, grey, firm skiing interspersed with some rain.
You concerned about wind issues? Forecasts I’m seeing that hint at snow all also consistently indicate strong winds at elevation, with a tight gradient and gusts possibly as high as 75, from Wednesday straight through Saturday afternoon
Not that wind holds would be a terrible thing if it means we can go searching for where the wind deposits the new snow all by our lonesomes!
While at revelstoke couple weeks ago they stated the plan is to built up high to protect against global warming. WF already has that plan enacted. Gotta be a glacier up above the mid lodge (current not future)
Well.....the good news is the rain from this most recent event seems to be less than expected, at least in the High Peaks, and the amount of time the mountains will see in the 40s is also less than expected. That will limit snow loss.
The bad news is that it’s still a wet warm up followed by a freeze.....and I’m not sure 1 to 2 feet through Saturday is in the cards. 2 to 4 wind blown isn’t going to help all that much, and no warm temps to soften things up.
Someone tell me it won’t be shitty this weekend, please!
