Radar at 4:30 this morning is showing a nice pulse of snow over Western Colorado, with a relatively dry swath of air upstream across Utah and Nevada under zonal flow. Heavy precipitation has moved onshore over California. Snowfall rates will wind down through the day as this current pulse ejects to our east and the jet stream splits around Colorado. The jet the realigns our direction tonight, packing abundant moisture on a direct flight from the Pacific, coupled with a cold front swinging north to south across the state on Wednesday. Still some model waffling as to how these dynamics line up, but tomorrow looks very impressive. Snowfall totals between now and Wednesday night look to exceed 20″.
