Bear Valley, CA…Hey Good People! A crisp morning of clear skies and 22F starts the day ahead of the approaching storm system. Snow showers are expected today but looks to arrive late morning into early afternoon. Tonight we could see up to 4″ as the system starts kicking into high gear. The next 3 days or so will bring copious amounts of snow to the forecast area with Aline County directly in it’s sights. Totals from the current model runs will look like this: Tuesday-4-8″, Tuesday night 8-12″, Wednesday-5-9″, Wednesday night 13-19″, Thursday- 16-22″, Thursday night- snow showers. So it looks like 46-70″ are possible but we’ll see how the last half of the system works out as warm air on the backside of the system could bring snowfall elevations up near 6500′ at the end of the storm. Surface pressure gradients will also increase come late Tuesday night/Wednesday as winds will pick up into the 30’s and possible low 40’s. Drifting snow and bigger accumulations will be seen with redistribution on the micro and macro levels. Either way conditions are favorable for quality snow production and the coming storms look to be low enough in elevation that the Grizz Bowl looks to come online sooner than later. This a classic January snowfall pattern for us and It’s time for some skiing/riding my friends so come on up and enjoy some “Pure Mtn Fun”.
