Statement as of 4:30 AM MST on February 12, 2009
... Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 6 PM this evening to
noon MST Friday...
The National Weather Service in Grand Junction has issued a
Winter Weather Advisory for snow... which is in effect from 6 PM
this evening to noon MST Friday.
A strong... fast moving Pacific storm will sweep across the region
tonight bringing widespread snow. Moisture wrapped around the
systems center will continue to bring snowfall into Friday. Total
accumulations from this storm are expected to range from 5 to 10
inches by midday Friday... with locally higher amounts on exposed
west and northwest facing slopes.
So with this in mind we are making a quick dash over Vail Pass this morning to get some skiing in before they close the pass. Whooo Whooo.
