Snow In View; Oh the Joy!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
 We've had a never-ending summer in these parts.  Beautiful weather from early May until today, but it is supposed to change within the next few hours.  As I look out my window I can see the first clouds, beautiful and fluffy, but behind them is supposed to be a low pressure system out of Alaska which will make temperatures drop, precipitation begin, and snow levels go to 4000'!  This will continue throughout the week.

I know it won't last, but it is the harbinger of things to come (I hope, damn El Nino, anyway).

It's snowing at Stevens Pass as I write.  There's snow all over and it looks winter-like.  This too shall pass, but it's fun to watch while it lasts.

Yup, snow sticking just above my house in UT.  There were even a few flakes blowing around at my level of 5300' a few minutes ago.  It was 80 degrees yesterday!  I will post a picture once the clouds lift a little.  More forecast this weekend.

It's snowing in the Jackson Hole mountains, too.

Teton Pass at 10:15am on 9/30/09:



Here's our forecast:

AN EARLY FALL STORM SYSTEM WILL BRING SIGNIFICANT PRECIPITATION TO
MUCH OF CENTRAL AND WESTERN WYOMING THROUGH TONIGHT.  PRECIPITATION
WILL BEGIN AROUND DAY BREAK THIS MORNING OVER THE WEST WITH SNOW
LEVELS POSSIBLY FALLING TO THE VALLEY FLOORS BY MID DAY. SNOWFALL OF
4 TO 6 INCHES ARE POSSIBLE IN THE WESTERN MOUNTAINS BY THIS EVENING.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT THERE.  THE VALLEYS COULD
SEE 1 TO 3 INCHES.

ANOTHER MAJOR STORM SYSTEM IS EXPECTED TO IMPACT THE FAR WEST LATE
SATURDAY AND THEN SPREAD EAST OF THE DIVIDE SATURDAY NIGHT INTO
SUNDAY...POSSIBLY CONTINUING INTO MONDAY. THIS STORM SYSTEM HAS THE
POTENTIAL TO BRING MORE SIGNIFICANT RAIN AND SNOW TO THE AREA FOR AN
EVEN LONGER DURATION THAN THE UPCOMING MIDWEEK SYSTEM.

 I was rafting and fishing on the Lower Salmon last week.  It was HOT and we were barefootin in the pristine sandy beaches.  Then I saw the cirrus clouds.  The last few days of the trip were not so hot, but still warm compared to Jackson.  On the drive home (Oct 2, my birthday) we kept seeing snow.  There was snow on Teton pass.  It snowed for real last night and I have a few inches in my yard.  I got a call from my friend in Breckinridge and he went skiing already.  We are thinking about a whitewater trip to Westwater or Cataract Canyons and a jog east to ski at A basin.  This should be happining later this month.

 By the way Posaune, nice Lewis and Clark reference!  

I was hiking in the Alpine Lakes wilderness yesterday, and it was wonderful to see snow above 4500 ft!

Saturday morning I was up top at Snowbowl putting up snow fence, and we had snow flurries on and off all morning.

Somebody recognized the reference!  After I wrote it I found that to be more accurate I should have titled it "Snow in View. O! The Joy!"

I'm headed up to the Alpine Lakes area on Thursday and Friday.  There won't be any new snow, unfortunately.
