Date: 01/03/2015

A nearly stationary trough will usher in bits of moisture today moving in Northwest flow, reaching the central mountains around mid-morning. Expect moderate winds and snowfall rates with this impulse, and look for a quick 3-6″ of snow by this evening. Accurate forecasts of orographically enhanced snowfall are notoriously tough, and higher amounts are possible in those typical snow factories near Kebler and Schofield passes. Another similar wave of moisture rolls through Sunday, keeping chances for snow through the weekend.
