March 15-16 - Snow Returns to the Far West Wyoming Mountains

A persistent westerly flow brought snowfall to far western and northwest Wyoming between 6:00 p.m. MDT Sunday and 6:00 p.m. MDT Monday.  The heaviest amounts fell in the higher terrain of southern Yellowstone National Park and adjacent mountains.  Warming temperatures allowed for snow levels to rise above the valley floors on Monday with little or no snow accumulation occurring in those areas.  The following SNOTEL totals were estimated from reports using a 12 to 1 snow to water equivalent ratio.
