Just to further emphasize how we are stuck in the middle, here's the GFS total precipitation forecast through 0600 UTC 5 December. Note how we are in an area of lower precipitation between an arm of high precipitation extending across Idaho and an arm of higher precipitation extending across Arizona.
Finally, here's an ensemble of our 22 experimental downscaled forecasts for Alta–Collins from the North American Ensemble Forecast System (NAEFS) for the next week. There are a few members of the Canadian modeling system that are going for big totals for the event late tonight and tomorrow, but this is highly unlikely and we've seen outlier forecasts produced by some of their ensemble members before. Most are generating 5" or less of snow through tomorrow night. Some as little as 2".
