And It Continues!

As noted in the previous post, this lake-effect storm is one of the best of the last 15 years or so, and it continues this morning.

Data from Alta-Collins shows quite well how the lake effect intensified each of the last two nights, as is common with the Great Salt Lake effect.  Note the ramp up in precipitation rate, with a peak Saturday morning and then another peak on Sunday.

The automated snow-depth sensor at Alta-Collins busted through the 40" mark this morning.  I always consider that to be the start of decent early season skiing (my standards are high).  It's tough to say whether or not we'll be able to hang above 40" once things start to settle after the storm, but this is a really good start regardless.

We are going to continue to see lake-effect this morning.  The storm will wind down after noon.  There should be some great views once the clouds start to break up.  Enjoy!
