Snow on the way
by Pinedale Online!
October 22, 2012

The National Weather Service is advising that significant mountain snowfall is possible Monday into Tuesday morning, October 22 & 23.

A strong storm off the west coast early this week will result in a moist southwest flow with a few embedded disturbances through the middle of the week. The southwest flow will be relatively warm at first, with precipitation expected to be rain in the lower elevations and snow in the mountains. This will change Monday night into Tuesday as a cold front moves across western Wyoming lowering snow levels to the valley floor in most places.

Western mountain ranges of Wyoming will likely experience periods of light to occasionally moderate snow through the middle of the week. The most significant snowfall is expected Monday into early Tuesday when periods of heavy snow will be possible.

Snow accumulations across the western mountains Monday into Tuesday morning should range between 5 and 10 inches with higher amounts on southwestern facing slopes. The western valleys and basins could see snowfall between 1 and 3 inches depending upon how quickly the rain changes to snow Monday night.

People with any plans to travel over mountain passes should be prepared for winter driving conditions as this potential storm impacts the west Monday into Tuesday.
