Things are starting to look snowy at high elevations even though rain has begun to take its toll on the snow that fell on Friday/Saturday.
Another 6″ is currently forecasted for elevations above 8,000k. Big takeaway– we need colder temps to really get this winter thing going in the western USA.
If the snow keeps up, the Tetons could see close to 13″ by Tuesday.
The higher elevations of Grand Targhee are currently favored to receive the most snowfall. Rendezvous Mountain is getting its fair share of snow today into tomorrow but slightly warmer temps on the eastside are keeping snow levels slightly lower.
- Jackson Hole is currently reporting 7″ in the last 24 hours.
Temps across the west will begin to cool steadily as this warmer atmospheric river moves south before delivering more precipitation to the PNW and BC. Models are also pointing to snowfall in Utah and Wyoming while Colorado gets small leftovers for the next week.
