In Colorado, this same storm system arrives today. I’m forecasting 2-6 inches at the ski areas with storm #1. Similar additional amounts with storm #2. Strong wind is likely on all the 13ers/14ers with gusts 40-90mph Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday.

Also of note, 6-8 inches of new snow fell at Mammoth Mountain, CA over the last 36 hours. This is great to see after a bone-dry Summer.
