That's a cold storm for May! Looks like maybe two weeks of below average temps along with clouds. That'll certainly reduce melting.

Snowing pretty good for the last hour, maybe picked up an inch plus. If it keeps up like this through the night and the mountain were to pick up 6 - 10 inches I would be very tempted to go out on the hill.
At any rate it should look beautiful in the morning. Went for a hike this afternoon up McGee Creek, now that was beautiful. Had a mix of sun, rain, and snow. Think I will go for a little walk now in the snow, nice big flakes coming down.

Say isnt there an actual glacier at Paradise something or other? This year will help it along.

Well I don't think he will be tempted to ski this morning even though the hill picked up 4" of snow. Still pea soup and only 3 lifts running with some down for maintenance. It's only 28 up at Main right now and it looks miserable on the cams.

Definitely beautiful this morning. Roads are clear but the trees have a coat of white.

According to archived data from the ski patrol site:

2017

peak depth of 215" on Feb. 22nd
200" on April 19th

Sesame is currently at 158". I kind of think that heatwave was atypical but then so is this storm.

Dont look now but here comes trouble around 10 daze out. Its forecast to have more over the water trajectory than the weekend storm.

"Looking out to the 8 to 14 day period, there is increasing
confidence in generally below average temperatures and above average
precipitation as large-scale low pressure remains over the region.
This is not to say there couldn`t be a day or two in between where
it dries out and warms up to near average, but overall it is
increasingly likely that it will remain cool with periods of
showers

Yeah, you were right. It looked pretty in the morning with a couple of inches on the ground but it sure wasn't worth going out on the mountain. I ended up just cleaning up a bit around the yard. A lot of debris melted out of the snow piles the last couple of weeks. Other than the Christmas lights I had up in the trees being shredded to pieces, we pretty much avoided any damage from all the snow this winter, so I consider us fortunate. Tons of dog poop melted out though, I picked up a good 80 piles and we don't even own a dog. It was like walking through a mine field. :sweat: :swear:

Quite the weather mix this afternoon: some sunshine, rain, hail, graupel and finally a beautiful bright rainbow. Feels like a spring or early summer rain.
