14 inches has fallen at Mount Baker overnight and lesser amounts at Crystal Mountain (7) where locals will see some good turning in low density snow today!  The Tetons, Wasatch and Central Utah will see snow break out later this afternoon with amounts in the 3-5 inch range by Thursday Morning!  This system will drop due South on Thursday morning into the 4 corners so areas around TellurideSilverton, Wolf Creek will see light snow during the day and evening Thursday (2-5 during the day and another 2-5 Thursday evening).  Models show moisture streaming into Eastern Colorado Thursday night with a significant upslope event possible over the Front Range Foothills late Thursday through Friday night.  SIgnificant snow will fall over the Northeast Corner of Colorado however ski resorts such as Eldora could see 7-11 inches.Friday will be the powder day as it will still be snowing during the day!   Areas such as Winter Park, Loveland will see less (4-7).  Areas along I-70 will see 3-5 inches from this system perhaps slightly higher amounts in some areas further East.
