We have now officially wrapped up our weekend storm. If you were outside the Cottonwoods, the storm behaved exactly as predicted — 3-6″ with higher amounts in southern Utah. However, Saturday night and Sunday we saw an extended period of orographically generated snowfall with even a bit of lake enhancement. This brought much higher totals to the Cottonwoods, especially Alta, which reported 16″ since Friday afternoon. Reports from the mountain suggest it skied even deeper than that. This is exactly why, when we had our bleak forecast last week, I said that at least we had storm energy in play. When you got a storm, even a disorganized one, you’ll at least have the opportunity for a surprise.
