What a great storm! I am anxious to see how big of a bump the snowpack got. I will post that tomorrow if it is available. I can’t remember the last time we had so many snow reports above 7,200 feet of elevation of 12+ inches. There were numerous reports between 10-18 inches. I was too low on my forecast.
With the fresh snow cover expect temperatures to drop well below freezing, creating some very icy conditions. I am sure the main paved thoroughfares will be properly treated. That being said, keep an eye out for the tricky spots. Rural driving could be quite a challenge. Lows could range from the teens to the middle 20s depending on your location. If you have to drive anywhere early, please use caution.
Don’t be surprised if light snow breaks out again this evening and/or tomorrow morning. At the moment I am not expecting anything significant between now and Friday night. I still have my eye on the opportunity for some snow on Saturday, working in from the south to the north in the morning and continuing into the afternoon. This is something that the Euro model has been advertising for the last couple of days. I will be following up on that tomorrow.
This weekend I will introduce the possibility of a weak storm on Monday, and perhaps a slightly stronger storm mid to late week. It is a little too early to see how it is going to come together right now, but stay tuned!
Thanks for all of the great snow reports, it really helps me analyze how the models verified to their earlier forecasts!
Thank you for following and supporting the site. During this crazy period that we are all going through I hope you can spend time with those you care about the most. I know I will update tomorrow afternoon, but it might be earlier based on what I see when I wake up.
