Please, please, please, tell me that the Teton's make weather forecastors look like fools
Yes, the Tetons make weather forecasters (and everybody else) look like fools.
The forecast is that we fall back into a "dirty ridge" by Thursday. A "dirty ridge" is a weak high pressure system that has impulses coming through to drop snow. We usually don't get mondo proportions of snow in that kind of system, but 8" - 12" wouldn't be unusual at all. You never know, of course, but I think it's kind of a promising forecast. At least it's staying somewhat cold and the skiing is just phenomenal all over the mountain.
Here's the latest NOAA forecast:
A RETURN TO WINTER WEATHER IS EXPECTED OVER WESTERN WYOMING STARTING
LATE THURSDAY. A SERIES OF WEATHER SYSTEMS WILL KEEP SNOW IN THE
FORECAST FRIDAY THROUGH SUNDAY WITH SHORT BREAKS BETWEEN SNOW EVENTS.
STAY TUNED FOR LATER UPDATES ON THIS SITUATION.
There are at least two other EpicSkiers who will be here this weekend. PM me if you would like to try to hook up.
