…Heavy snow accumulation possible in the Sawtooth Recreation

Area above 7000 feet Thursday and Friday…

A storm system developing off the Pacific Northwest Coast will

bring snow, possibly heavy at times to the mountains of the

Sawtooth National Recreation Area above 7000 feet elevation,

beginning Thursday morning. This includes the mountains around Sun

Valley and Stanley, Idaho. Southerly winds ahead of this storm

system will favor the Sawtooth area, while potential for snow

accumulation in the rest of Southeastern Idaho is still uncertain.

Early indications suggest accumulation could be as much as a foot

of snow. Folks venturing into the backcountry Thursday and Friday

should stay informed of the latest storm developments.
