Alta Snow Bomb

Remarkable precipitation rates at Alta-Collins this evening.  A whopping 0.30" of snow water equivalent fell from 6-7 PM, with 2" of snow.  It is still very warm up there, 30F at the Collins observing site and 34F at the base, although the weather cams suggest that it is finally snowing down to the Albion base.  Hooray!

The radar shows a nice frontal band blanketing the area that is moving very slowly.  Let it snow!
