It’s looking great for almost everyone in the Mnts & Foothills. As for the FBRV snow hole Jason made some great points. I’ve seen it be way overdone by the models with this set up. Not saying it’s not correct but I’m skeptical it will be as dramatic as depicted. As always with SE snowstorms nothing is certain but as far as modeling, setup’s, ect it doesn’t get much better than this!!! Strap in fellas it’s gonna be a wild one.

I would rather he bring the cold, if it’s all the same to the rest of you.  :D

Hey now, I really will bring out the lights out post :snowing: (To be fair, the models do actually kinda make home (Monroe) in a bad spot for that, that's why I'm headed up the hill)

I just have a feeling this is gonna rack up quickly. With temps in the 20s for the duration of the event, it’s gonna be crazy to watch 12+ hours of snowfall. Definitely something I’ve never seen before. I just checked the NWS hourly forecast grid and it had right at 18” for our area and that’s at around 3200 feet. I’d be fine if half of that occurred.

The eastern slopes are going to be absolutely buried with upslope flow. I’ll be shocked if there aren’t a few major over performances along the escapement. That’s gotta be a nice treat for folks who typically miss out on NWF
