A winter weather advisory is in effect today for the Tetons, Salt River, and Wyoming Ranges with up to a foot of snow forecasted for the higher elevations.
Powder Alert: Up To 18″ of Snow Forecasted For Northern Rockies
As the day progresses, look for that snow to move towards the Continental Divide, leaving its payload on Togwotee Pass, Wind River Range, as well as the Bighorns. That same snow could be reason enough for the most diehard of Wyoming locals to go get the first turns of the year. Just be safe and make sure to be light on your feet people!
- The summit of the Grand Teton could see up to 31″
