Compared to yesterday, this morning's (0900 UTC initialized) SREF is much wetter for Alta, with a mean water equivalent of nearly an inch through 1800 UTC (1200 MDT) tomorrow (Wednesday), with a range of about 0.35 to 1.25 inches.
Numbers from that model run for Alta show 1.03 inches of water and about 11 inches of snow through 1200 MDT tomorrow.
Bottom line is that this is now looking like a healthy early-season storm. Something in the 8-16 inch range for Alta-Collins is looking likely through tomorrow afternoon. It will be interesting to see how this unfolds. If it can come in big, my interest in getting a lap in will increase markedly.
