After a dry spell over the weekend, an active weather pattern is moving back into the great basin of the Western United States and with that change comes cold temps and abundant snowfall.
As of Monday morning, Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are currently in effect for the Wasatch, central/northern mountains of Colorado, as well as the Tetons. Of those three states, expect all three to see similar accumulation totals that should range in the 5-12″ range by Tuesday evening. From Wednesday on, expect even more snow to affect these 3 regions with up to another foot of snow by the weekend.
LET IT SNOW!
