Alta Cold Smoke

It's time to spend some time looking at the Wasatch Mountains again and, in particular, the remarkable pounding that Alta has taken over the past 24 hours or so.  Looks like a total accumulation of about 17 inches, with only .66" of water.  That's a water content of only 4%.  Cold Smoke!

Although mountain snows were fairly widespread overnight, they have become more concentrated in the upper Cottonwoods over the past couple of hours, with some spillover across the southern Park City ridge line, as indicated by the 1847 UTC (1147 AM MST) radar image.

There is also an incredible Lone Peak cap cloud.  Somebody from the U take a picture and send it to me!
