SnoCountry SnoShots: Pacific Northwest Getting The Goods

Early on, above-freezing temps kept snowfall down in the Pacific Northwest. But lately, the temps have dropped and the depths have risen. Pacific storms have stayed north, pummeling the Cascades and intermountain region with snowfall measured in feet.

The southern edge of the storms have dipped down into northern California and Lake Tahoe region, putting down knee-deep layers of powder just in time for the Christmas-New Year's holidays.

Forecasts call for significant snowfall to find its way farther south, into the Wasatch and southern Rockies, as the winter gets rolling.
