The colder weather is associated with an upper level area of low pressure that is parked along the West Coast that will hang around through the weekend.
It also looks like it will get cold enough to freeze the snow pack with daytime temperatures in the upper 20s up top to 40s at the Main Lodge both days.
A little warmer weather is expected on Friday and into Saturday with decreasing southwest winds with a little colder weather on Sunday and into Memorial Day as the low pressure system situated along the West Coast exits eastward.
Except for a slight chance for light showers on Sunday with snow levels around 9000 feet, no precipitation is expected through the Memorial Day closing date with just some clouds over the weekend.
