TLDR: Possible 4-8” Wed afternoon – Thu morning. Followed by the potential for 1-2 feet late Thu-Sat morning…but there’s uncertainty with the second storm so stay tuned.
The national weather service graphic for Solitude shows a continuous > 60% chance of snow starting tonight through the next 4 days, Nice! But when exactly and how much?
You probably noticed the extra mid- and upper-level clouds today. These clouds are the leading edge of a series of low-pressure disturbances. Portions of those disturbances are already impacting parts of the western U.S. as seen in the current combined radar image below.
Bits of very light precipitation are possible tonight, but the 1st push of snow will be tomorrow afternoon through Thu morning, with 4-8” expected during that time.
We then get a short break with another storm arriving overnight Thu-Fri, continuing on/off Fri, and into Sat morning. The potential is higher with this second storm, with current forecast guidance of 10-20” late Thu to early Sat. That number could go up if a short-wave trough comes together late Fri, or even down if this system shifts to our south, so check back as we get closer.
Another low-pressure system is slated to impact the intermountain west Sun into Mon, but I’ll hold off on the details for now (could be more love for Srn/Ctrl UT).
