Looks like another forecast went almost exactly according to plan. Forecast was for 3-6″ in the Wasatch with up to 8″ in the Cottonwoods. Right now, Cottonwood resorts are reporting 6″ at 7am. Orographics are combining well with a tiny bit of lake enhancement to keep snow going in the high elevations. That should continue for much of the morning before we start to dry up and clear out this afternoon. We’ll probably end up with about 8″ in the Cottonwoods to nourish your Saturday powder cravings.
We’ll see a weak system or two this week that will cool us down at times with a few clouds and breezes, but there is no longer any imminent threat of snowfall after today. Could this be it for powder for the 2012-2013 Winter season? May usually offers up at least one or two decent powder days, so I doubt it. But by then, Snowbird will be the only resort open, so for many of you, today is likely your last chance at powder. So enjoy it!
