NOAA: Up To 74" For Mount Baker Proper By Monday | Washington Snow Roundup

By

A huge storm is engulfing the western United States this weekend and right now, the Mount Baker area is looking to reap serious rewards. The actual mountain (not the ski area) is forecasted to get up to 74″ by Monday night.

That’s over 6 feet of snow!

Needless to say the PNW is getting the goods starting today and the snow should continue to fall through the Cascades over the weekend.
