Utah Has Snow!

A cold storm moved in yesterday and high elevation spots have snow this morning. It is clearly visible on the mountains from Salt Lake City. Our ski resort towns received considerable snow, as did other communities at similar elevations.
The Deseret News has this photo essay about the snow, including some fun photos.
KSL TV has this report about the snow, complete with video and tips about safety. (People always drive a little crazy during the first few storms of the season.)
Scattered rain and snow showers are expected tonight. By morning, many bench areas in northern Utah will have a dusting of snow.
It is early in the season and this snow will probably all melt (perhaps some will stay in shady areas at the highest elevations). But more will come and it will soon start to stick. Weather conditions were wet during late summer and fall is starting off with a bang.
Our ski resorts usually start opening during mid or late October. If weather projections hold, we might have an early ski season and abundant snow.
