The Tetons scored big last night (14-17 inches overnight) with colder temperatures and strong winds that will be decreasing during the day. Snow will taper off with another 2-4 expected before noon. Snow will also be continuing in central and southern Idaho today albeit lighter.
The Wasatch of Utah fared best to the north along I-80 (Park City, Deer Valley, Snowbasin, Powder). Moisture will drop into the southern Wasatch (Cottonwoods) by mid morning with a quick 5-10 inches during the day. Winds will be a factor at many higher elevation resorts through mid morning or early afternoon. NW flow kicks in this afternoon so expect snow showers to linger into the evening south of I-80 (Another light to moderate dump likely) with winds diminishing.
The Sierra is finally looking negotiable in my eyes. Light to moderate snow, colder temps will bring a quick 6-12 inches to the mountains and perhaps lake level today and another 8-15 inches Thursday. The Thursday storm will favor the southern sierra so spots like Mammoth may see higher amounts.
Colorado models have come up short when compared to yesterday albeit still respectable pockets of 12 inches plus. Most of your snow will arrive later this morning through tonight with favored locations being Steamboat, Monarch, Crested Butte. Aspen, Beaver Creek, and Breckenridge are my wildcards. Front range resorts and West to Vail Pass will see lighter amounts (4-9). Last chair today or 1st chair Thursday would be the best picks in many areas of Colorado.
The next system due for the Sierra Thursday takes a southerly route with cold air into the 4 corners late this week and weekend. That could land additional powder days late this week in Colorado.
