NOAA is currently forecasting 122-181″ of snow to fall at 10,000-feet on Mt. Baker, WA in the next 4 days (see NOAA forecast below).

Those are some amazing numbers.

This snow will come to Mt. Baker via a 5,000-mile-long atmospheric river that stretches from China to British Columbia right now (see satellite image below).

Snow levels are forecast to be high with this storm in Washington starting as high as 10,000′ today before dropping as low as 3,500′ on Friday (see graph below).
