Snow Returns to Rockies

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for northern Utah from tonight through Noon MDT tomorrow.  The Wasatch and western Uinta Mountains are expected to receive 4-8 inches of new snow above 8000 ft by tomorrow afternoon.

This storm system will continue east and bring snow to southern Colorado and northern New Mexico Tuesday night into Wednesday.  A Winter Storm Watch is currently in effect for this area.  Six to eight inches of new snow is expected from the higher-elevation valleys up into the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.  According to the HPC winter weather outlook page, this event could be more widespread than the Utah event tonight.

You’ll also notice the forecast for snow in the arrowhead of Minnesota.  According to the forecast discussion from Duluth, they have held off on issuing a Winter Storm Watch in the area for now.  They noted that 6 inches of new snow in isolated areas is not out of the question.  I imagine we’ll see some sort of advisory in the next 24 hours regarding this event unless the model solution continues to warm and rain mixes in with the snow for longer than anticipated.
