Where are we Whistler? We just had a 10″ powder day on Sunday, and now we’re we’re in for two more snowy days in a row. Wow, it’s great to see winter make a return.
A closed low pressure system sits in the Great Basin right now, spinning moisture our way on a Southwest flow. Today we’ll see light snow, before the storm ramps up with big winds tonight. The snowfall will get going in earnest after midnight tonight, carrying through the day tomorrow. By Thursday morning, we’ll see storm totals in the high country of around a foot, with maybe half that here in Crested Butte.
