No huge amount of snowfall, but we’re expecting some powder to hit the area this evening, into tomorrow. The National Weather Service is saying two to three inches should hit lake level, which means anything above 7,000 feet could be hit with about six inches or so.

After this storm, another one is expected to hit on New Year’s Eve, into New Year’s Day.
