Last night’s cold front swept through last night and delivered an additional 8″ to 12″+ since sunset, with extreme alpine gusts from 60 to 100 mph. A cold airmass is filling in behind today. Radar shows snow showers upstream to the Colorado/Utah border, so we’ll see at least a few more hours of decent snow before drier air begins moving in on the back side of yesterday’s vicious trough. The jet stream is lifting to the northeast, and winds have already graciously eased relative to last night’s strong to extreme alpine winds.
