The forecast was just updated to reflect a little more accurately what is going on out there… and that is wet snow!

for updated imagery from the Hump and Sutton Pass.  Unfortunately the Hump is offline right now but here is Sutton Pass right now.

Poor Visibility! ;=) There was also snow on the road.

Take care driving out there.  The temperature is not likely to rise at all so snow will depend on how hard it is raining (the harder it rains, the more it ‘drags down’ the freezing temperatures above and rain turns to snow).

I don’t think there is any chance of a winner of the Snow Contest today, but you never know!

I will have a new post up tomorrow morning.
