Light snow through Thursday. Dry pattern prevails on Friday and remains in place through next week. Still watching the first few days of February for an active storm track to return.
Short Term Forecast
The original forecast of 3-6 inches played out great for Grand Targhee as they are reporting 4 inches on Tuesday morning. But once again, Jackson Hole is the big winner with an 11 inch powder report. No complaints and we'll take it!
We'll now see the transition to more of a northerly flow by Tuesday evening and into a west to northwest pattern on Wednesday and Thursday. This will keep the snow machine cranking with periods of light snow on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. In total, look for an additional 3-6 inches for Grand Targhee and Jackson Hole.
Much drier air will then begin to flow into the region on Thursday night. This will signal the end to our latest storm cycle and the transition to an extended dry period. Temperatures will remain on the cooler side for Friday and Saturday before much milder air filters in for all of next week.
No big changes to the extended forecast as our full attention will remain on the first few days of February for a shift back to an active storm track.
We should see our first flakes return by February 4th (plus or minus a day) and remain in the forecast for the days that follow. We'll have plenty of time to discuss this transition to stay tuned.
