So far, NOAA is forecasting snow above 8,000 feet across much of Colorado, Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming this week after a light snow hits the mountains of eastern Utah.

“A more significant storm system remains on track for Thursday (first day of Autumn) with the potential to bring widespread precipitation along with strong thunderstorms! Much cooler weather is then expected for Friday with mountain snow down to 8000-9000 feet mean sea level possible. Stay tuned as we continue to monitor this developing storm!” NWS Grand Junction, CO

Already snow is falling @WhistlerBlackcomb with the freezing level dropping below the mid mountain area that includes the Roundhouse Lodge (6,069′).
