SUMMER IS ENDING WITH A SLAM DUNK 1-2 FEET OF POWDER FOR THE TETONS AND YELLOWSTONE. FALL STARTS FRIDAY!
Significant high elevation snowfall is likely from the Tetons through northern Wyoming and eventually edging into southern Montana late week. Temperatures will keep snow above 8500 feet through Thursday before dropping to near the base elevations by Friday morning. “We expect 10-18 inches or more at the highest elevations of the Tetons through Friday afternoon!” The most significant amounts should favor the north Tetons and areas to the Montana border where amounts could exceed 2 feet. Other highlights might include Red Mountain Lodge Montana, and most of the Wind River Range of Wyoming. Temperatures are on the warm side mid week with a trend towards colder late week where snowfall could increase especially Thursday night. Most snowfall will be limited to higher elevations of the mountain ranges. The summit of Jackson Hole could reap some mid thigh to knee deep by Friday!
Moderate snow is likely to repeat over Big Sky this week as well as the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. The Uinta Range east of Park City could nab 12- inches or more through Saturday! These areas are favored Thursday night-Saturday. Mountains closer to Salt Lake will see snowfall with lower amounts.
