Snow has StartedPosted: March 14, 2009
The cold has finally left, and along with more seasonal temperatures, snow has arrived as well, earlier than the forecasts predicted. Mountain-top temperatures at 0700 were -9C, and we recorded -7C at our Pika weather plot, located uphill of the base of Paradise chair.
As for overnight snowfall, we had received about 5cm as of 0700 this morning, and a couple more have been added since then. The forecasts, while not predicting heavy snow, are saying we should expect the bulk of the forecasted snow tonight and tomorrow morning. No matter what happens, we have new snow, and conditions are better for it.
