Ended up with about 6" of heavy, wet stuff. Nice snowy night around the neighborhood.

Nice depressing description, 98.5 percent of us this winter would love to have an inch of that and not describe it that way... it's either nice or not. Not heavy wet stuff.... geez...

It was a literal description of the type of snow. I wasn't complaining.

Low clouds and temperatures in the upper 20s to low 30s the last few days. Should get a little snow or rain on Tuesday night with hopefully a mix out. Bigger storm with rain to snow Thurs-Friday seems possible at this time.

The building in that second photo almost looks like some sort of castle somewhere in Europe (only without the moat). What building is that and where is it located?

It's Belleview Christian School here in Westminster. About 5 min from my house.

Inversions remain but the stratus finally broke up. First time I've seen the sun in like 4 days.

I had a friend years ago who was in SLC for 6 months for a work contract, over the winter. He complained a lot about the inversions while he was there. I think it was the winter of 2010-11? Or 2011-12.

Probably 11/12. 10/11 had a lot of active weather with only January seeing any sustained ridging. This winter hasn't been too bad until recently.

Despite highs in the 40s the past couple days with sunshine, snow cover is holding up pretty good. Still about 4-5" for most my yard.

 

Low dew points and (still) long shadows working their magic.

Sure Jared... your snow does not melt when its sunny and in the 40s?

 

I was told that someone in DC cannot keep snow on the ground when its sunny and in the 20s. 

 

You have magical snow!

Well, to be fair, from late February on sunshine is much more effective at melting snow.

To be fair... we had about 6 inches of graupel in that storm (not fluffy snow) which did manage to survive the next day with a 47.4 degree sun angle and a low dewpoint.

 

I actually wish it had not happened.   I have spent hours trying to explain something that nature actually did... because it did happen.    I wanted it to melt instantly.     :)

Tomorrow evening may see an early transition to snow (graupel perhaps) to due very heavy convection near the front. HRRR showing the temperature plummeting from the mid 40s to 33F in about an hour near me. Also shows about .7" of precipitation falling as snow near 33F or so. Could be several inches of wet snow in that case.

Looks like our snow drought is finally coming to end. It has stayed cold here for the most part under an inversion so still plenty of snow out there but it sure is dirty looking. We should see a couple of inches of snow tomorrow into Friday with more over the weekend. It looks like we could see a pretty strong storm Sunday night into Monday and again Wednesday.

 

12z ECMWF shows about 20-25" in Bozeman over the next 10 days so it appears the snow machine is finally turning back on.

Highest daily snowfall: 14.0"

Highest snow depth: 18.0"

Coldest high: 8.1º

Number of subzero days: 3

Picked up a quick 2-3" this morning at the house, on top of the 3" still on the ground from last Friday. Better than I was expecting based on the models last night.

Under a Winter Weather Advisory here beginning tonight. Looks like 2-4" of snow tonight and possibly an additional 1-3" on Monday.

 

Another system moves in on Wednesday that looks to be a bit stronger.

I didn’t even make the map...what does that make my area??


The Rockies. :)

The intermountain West usually refers to the area between the Rockies and the Cascades/Sierra Nevada.

Winter storm watch for SLC down to southern Utah for 4-8" of snow. I think some places will get that, but for me I am thinking 3-6" more likely. Still, should be a nice storm.

Yeah I've always thought of Bozeman as kind of a tweener Northern Rockies climate being situated east of the Continental Divide while just barely west of the Northern Plains.

Picked up 2" of snow last night. Looking like 4-6" late tonight into tomorrow. 

 

Really nice to be back in an active snow pattern again.

Snow has really been coming down out there this morning. Up to 8" of snow on the day already and still coming down. The snow started off quite wet for here so things are way more flocked than they usually are. Just beautiful!

Nice to hear the good storm reports. Hopefully this storm overperforms here as well. 

 

Forecast is for a quick 2-4", similar to last storm but a bit cooler.

Would Tim or anyone else mind posting the Euro snow map for this area for the next 24 hours?

Gracias! Looks like 3-4" here, in line with the latest forecasts. 

 

Still a 2-3" snow pack surviving in my yard, despite temps reaching the 50s yesterday. Unless this storm busts, should be able to string together a 2+ week stretch of snow on the ground. Better than any period last winter.

5.6" is my final number. Ended a bit sooner than I thought but oh well. Looks great out there.

Tonight's storm is looking more and more dynamic. Blizzard warning now up for much of the eastern plains. The latest 3km NAM shows heavy banding in this area with some spots seeing 6"+.

Nice! This storm has been quite impressive here so I wouldn't be surprised if it overachieves elsewhere as well. 

 

Still snowing moderately here...looks like about 8-10" of new snow in town now. Will be interesting to see what I end up with when I get back home tonight.

Strong north winds gusting to about 40 mph here. Moderate snow...now let's see where the banding sets up. 

 

Latest models have cut down amounts, but they've really struggled with this storm, so anything from 1"-6" wouldn't surprise me.
