POWDER ALERT- short range looks decent, long range improvements
Warm air continues to drench the lower Cascade elevations and will increase Thursday In the Sierra. High elevations of the Sierra will see light to moderate dense now. The Tetons track more moisture (they have had snow almost every 24 hours for 2 weeks) Thursday to Friday. Snow will be continuous light to moderate, dense, rain mix at bases until late Thursday into Friday. Colder temps will bring better quality to the Tetons by Friday morning (light amounts)
Chase could be warranted over the Wastach Friday AM. Dense light snow will favor northern Utah Thursday PM. Moderate to heavy snow cooler temps migrate over Utah late after midnight into Friday AM. High confidence in 7-11 inch storm totals in the upper Cottonwoods. Snow moves into Colorado before daybreak Friday. Aspen, and areas towards I 70 see 4-8 inches during the day. There is a chance of higher amounts over Vail Pass under NW flow. Density in both Utah and Colorado start off dense and finish medium.
The biggest news is that models are trending a cold storm for Montana, Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado early next week. This could spell an epic alert by Wednesday morning, especially in Colorado. Utah will see the rewards on Tuesday. This is a storm we will be watching closely with a true surge of colder temperatures that we have not seen in many weeks.
