NOAA has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Teton Range in Wyoming that is calling for 4-10″ of snowfall today and tomorrow. They’re also saying it’s going to be a “snow filled week.” We like the sound of that.
“Dry conditions to give way to a snow filled week. Windy and dry conditions will bring elevated to extreme fire danger to the lower elevations of areas east of the divide Monday. An upper level disturbance will then bring snow across the west Monday afternoon, and increase in intensity Monday night into Tuesday. Accumulating snow could then spread across the south and east Tuesday through Wednesday.” – NOAA Riverton, WY yesterday
