As forecast yesterday, it’s nuking snow in the northern Rocky Mountains today!
The above image is of the top of Lone Peak at Big Sky ski resort in Montana at an elevation of 11,166-fet.
Snow fell in many places across the Western US yesterday including Mammoth Mountain, CA (image below).
Today, the storms rage on in Idaho, Utah, Montana, and California with up to 6″ of snow expected in Idaho.
Winter is only a breath away…
“A series of upper-level disturbances will bring widespread rainfall across the Gem State over the next couple days. Isolated thunderstorms will be more prevalent during the daytime, but may also be encountered at night. Showers will pick up again tomorrow morning across southeast Idaho. Locally heavy rain is possible and may lead to some street flooding. Low temperatures Thursday and Friday nights will dip into the mid 30s and may produce pockets of frost across the Snake River Plain.” – NOAA Pocatello, Idaho
A fall weather system is forecast to move across Northern California Wednesday, potentially spreading precipitation south to around the Interstate-80 corridor. Rain amounts of up to around 0.25″ will be possible, with highest amounts across the northern Sacramento Valley and higher elevations. Snow levels may also drop down to around 7000 ft, meaning possible snow for Lassen Park and perhaps a dusting near the northern Sierra Crest.
