It’s hard to beat knee to waist high powder up at Wolf Creek!… Pic taken 2/24/2022
Thursday – 24 Feb 2022 – 5:20pm
At Stevens Field the high temp this afternoon was 29. The low this morning was 16. The peak wind at the airfield in the last 24 hours was 22mph.
Precip in the last 24 hours… I was glad to hear that quite a few people reported decent snow this morning. Below are CoCoRaHS reports for the last 24 hours and for the storm. Also below are some “before and after” snowpack products. The mountains did well but the valley fell quite short of my expectations.
Wolf Creek reported 16″ in the last 24 hours and 46″ for the storm.
Thanks a bunch for your reports!
The trough finally moved through earlier today.
Upper level northwest flow will dry us out and gradually warm us up for the next 7 days.
The next system?… The pattern could get more active around 4 or 5 March.
