The snowstorm that pounded Wyoming, Utah, and especially Colorado has now cleared from Utah & Wyoming leaving behind what appears to be significant amounts of snow.

The satellite image above shows snow cover on the following mountain ranges today, 9/11/20:

  • Unita Mountains, UT
  • Wind River Range, WY
  • Beartooth Mountains, WY
  • Absaroka Mountains, WY
  • Bighorn Mountains, WY (not labeled but just to right of word “Beartooth” in image above)

We’re hoping the cloud cover over Colorado clears enough tomorrow to reveal the snow cover in the mountains of Colorado.

Some locations in Colorado reported up to 18″ of new snow from this summer snowstorm including Monarch Mountain, CO.

We highly recommend looking at NASA’s MODIS Worldview satellite image as much as you can.

We look at this every single day…
