SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Saturday, January 31, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 13 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: The low pressure will pass well to the south of us, but there's enough moisture in the air mass and we do see the 700 mb winds come around to the northwest later this morning and afternoon. So, I'm going to put some light accumulations across the upper half of the resort. We have a couple of additional systems moving southeastward from the Pacific Northwest from late…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Friday, January 30, 2015

Ladies & Gents,  

We have gone 12 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: A lot of clouds and a mild air mass, and we could see some light showers in the area through tomorrow morning. A little east wind this afternoon and tonight, should limit the amount of precipitation. The 700 mb temperatures peak at -2'C this afternoon then drop to -9'C by Sunday, so definitely cooler through the weekend. A couple of systems will clip the area from Monday…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Thursday, January 29, 2015

Ladies & Gents,     

We have gone 11 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: A lot of clouds over the next couple of days with a chance of snow showers, but a little bit of an east wind tomorrow afternoon and night should limit the snow accumulations to just a trace. The winds at 700 mb are forecasted to be less than 10 knots, and the surface gradient is expected to be weak, so not a strong east wind episode. A chance of of snow showers on…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Thursday, January 28, 2015

Ladies & Gents,    

We have gone 10 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: We'll see some clouds and snow showers through this afternoon and evening, but liquid-wise the models generate less than 0.05", so I'm going to keep amounts really light. Variable cloudiness tomorrow with the low pressure developing further south and keeping most of the precipitation south of the area, but could see some snow showers later tomorrow night and Saturday.…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Tuesday, January 27, 2015

Ladies & Gents,   

We have gone 9 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: Quite an inversion to start the day, but should see some mixing to weaken it through the afternoon.  A couple of weak systems will move across the interior of West bringing clouds, and a chance of snow showers, but the chance of measurable snow is low. The air mass will cool through the period, especially over the weekend, so at least it won't feel like March or April in…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Monday, January 26, 2015

Ladies & Gents,  

We have gone 8 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: Should be another fairly nice weather day on the mountain. A weak system from down off Baja will move northward bringing an increase in clouds later tomorrow and a chance of snow showers into Wednesday. The 700 mb temperatures support lower snow levels, but the origin of the moisture would result in some higher snow levels and we could see a mix at the base. Pretty screwy…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Sunday, January 25, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 7 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: A lot of clouds flowing across the area, but I've only see trace to 0.01" of an inch amounts over the area. The clouds will remain over the area this morning, but should see more and more breaks later this morning and afternoon. A weak system has developed off the Baja coast and will move northward bringing a chance of snow showers to the area late Tuesday night and…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Saturday, January 24, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 6 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls:  High pressure is over the interior of the West, but located further west of us. I need to point out that the winds at 700 mb increase this afternoon through tomorrow morning, then decrease tomorrow afternoon. The humidity values also go up, and I'm going to put a chance of snow showers in on the upper portion of the mountain with the winds from 300 to 310 degrees.  By later…

SafetyWise and Joe Nicholls' Forecast for Friday, January 23, 2015

Ladies & Gents,

We have gone 5 days since our last day lost to a work related injury.

Joe Nicholls: A couple of weak systems will bring considerable cloudiness to the area today and tomorrow with the air mass slowly warming. By later Sunday and Monday, the 700 mb temperature climbs above 0'C, so a fairly significant warmup to start the week. We'll see cooler tempertures later Tuesday and Wednesday along with an increase in moisture, so we could see a little light snow or…
