It's a hell of a storm and it is raging again this morning as a cold from moves through northern Utah making the morning commute miserable in the Salt Lake Valley, but also pushing accumulations in the mountains to even higher levels. It should be a quick hitter for the valley, but the timing is bad news for anyone having to travel during the morning rush.
As of this morning, water totals in the mountains are impressive. Ben Lomond Peak's automated gauge is up to nearly 5 inches (green dots). Snowbasin middle bowl is approaching 4.5 inches (blue line). Alta-Collins is at 2.4 inches. The big winner is Sundances site with over 6.5 inches, although the Utah Avalanche Center is reporting 4 inches in their advisory this morning, so I wonder if that might be overdone compared to manual observations. It is apparent, however, that they got quite a pasting down there.
With the total snow depth at Alta-Collins up to 63", I'm officially announcing the start of "good early season conditions" (60 inches is my threshold for that).
