10-20-2017 – 8AM – Good morning we picked up 1-2 inches of fresh heavy snow at the 8200 feet level with 2-3 at Main and 4-6 over the top of Mammoth Mountain

We have temperatures in the 30s here at Canyon Lodge and 20’s on the upper reaches of the mountain. Winds are out of the SW@ 50+ MPH. 

Expect highs in the 40s in town and 30s out on Mammoth Mountain today. Lows the next few days will be in the 20 to low 30s. Highs will come up 5-10 degrees on Saturday. 

By Sunday we get into a major warming trend, high next week will be into the low 70s in town and mid 60s on the hill. Yes that will melt the snow but it will seep into the ground and start freezing at night.

At 7-10 days out the MJO is into phase 6 and that will offer up some snowmaking chances each night. It appears the pattern offer up some more snow around the first week of November. The CFSv2 keeps wanting to give us a wet November. 

Snowman out…
