Snow forecast through Thanksgiving

Tomer’s Take: Three different storm systems are lined-up through Thanksgiving. My forecast totals have increased for the Wasatch. The third storm system 11/23-11/24 is trending slightly stronger.

2 inches of new snow (so far) is being reported at Alta, UT. Snow is also moving into Colorado’s Central and Northern Mountains.

It just started snowing at Aspen/Snowmass.
