Larry’s Powder Alert – December 23 Weather Update

Powder Alert (Weather Update only)
December 23

Snow is falling in the Cascades tonight, but it won’t last long.

The snow level is finally lowering this evening after a wet and mild last couple of days in the Cascades.  The snow level was 5000-6000ft over much of the weekend. The level has now  lowered to 2500 – 3000ft. Unfortunately,  the moisture is starting to taper off, just as the snow level lowers – I hate when that happens. Total snowfall will be rather light overnight, about 1-4″, favoring the central Cascades.

Call ahead for details at your favorite resort. Expect to ski in at least partly to mostly sunny skies. There will be thin and bare spots.

The weather will turn dry again on Tuesday and continue dry. The computer forecast maps indicate high pressure will once again block storms from moving into the Pacific Northwest. The extended outlook indicates little change for a week or more. Occasionally we may be brushed by a weak system, but it won’t amount to much.

Folks, I wish I had better news for you, but I just call them as I see them.

Have a Happy Holiday
