Weekend Storm Chasin' Begins

The Doppler on Wheels (DOW) is pulling out of the hanger early this morning for what looks to be a very exciting weekend of "storm chasing."  Both meteorologists and skiers should be happy.

Thanks to the moist, southwesterly, pre-frontal flow, it's already snowing in the Wasatch Range.  

Alta-Collins has had about .09" of snow-water equivalent in the past two hours.  Not a lot, but it is a start. We expect precipitation rates to pick up with the approach of the front and hope to be sampling changes in the structure and intensity of the storm in the Cottonwoods throughout the day.  Time to hit the road!
