Jackson Hole & the Teton’s strong snow season continues. The Tetons saw 8-16″ of snow yesterday and they have 5-10″ forecasted for today. NOAA has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the Tetons that expires today at 5pm.
Snow continues across the west, as breezy/windy conditions also continue across much of the forecast area. Strong winds will be confined near Jeffrey City to Alcova. Snow will gradually end in the western valleys, as temperatures warm above freezing. There will be a brief reprieve tonight, before the next storm system impacts western portions again Friday. – NOAA Riverton, WY Feb. 13th
