The Pacific trough closes off over Utah today, issuing deep moisture into our region under southwest flow. Snowfall looks to kick off late this afternoon with a couple of inches possible before sunset, and gets a boost as a weak cold front arrives tonight. Flow swings around to the northwest as the low moves overhead into Tuesday. The combination of deep moisture and northwest flow does well for Kebler Pass and Paradise Divide, and we could see up to a foot of new snow by Tuesday evening in these areas, with half of that closer to town.
