14″ OVERNIGHT AT JACKSON HOLE WITH 1-2+ FEET MORE TO COME!!
Short Term Forecast:
Jackson Hole picked up a quick 14″ overnight.
A shortwave trough aloft combined with moisture from the pacific resulting in heavy snow north of the aforementioned cold front, hammering the Tetons. The shortwave trough will continue to effect Wyoming before the Low pressure moves down the coast and eventually inland.

Over the next several days, the Tetons will be slammed with snow. With W/SW flow, we expect Jackson Hole to do very well. As the shortwave digs SW Thursday Evening/Friday Morning, precipitation will again breakout over the Tetons. Initially it will be too warm for snow in the valleys, but above 6500 feet it will snow moderately to heavily for SEVERAL DAYS. (image courtesy of Tropical Tidbits)
Right now, the snow looks to last until Sunday, with 1-2+ FEET of snow. There should be a lull in the snow on Sunday before another, similar storm begins to affect the region that could again last for a few days. Watch the snow pile up in the Tetons below.

This storm will roughly begin effecting Wyoming Monday morning. This could be another moderate to heavy snow event for the areas mentioned above.
