November 9, 2010 Snow over the Bear Lodge Mountains

A small storm system produced the first heavy snow of the season across the Bear Lodge Mountains.  The Hulett area received the most snow, with snowfall ranging from five inches to almost a foot and a half.  Because upslope flow was limited, only a couple of inches of snow fell over the South Dakota northern Black Hills.
