What started out as a cold drizzle this morning has steadily transitioned from a wintry mix to all snow. It's currently 1 degree above freezing at the base, so we aren't expecting too much accumulation from this system, but perhaps the higher elevations will see some appreciable snowfall. Today saw the first real rain of 2012, and we were all on the edge of our seats to see how it would play it out, but in the end, the rain started later than forecast and transitioned over to snow very quickly with the passing of the front. Expect slushy and mushy Spring-like conditions on the lower half of the mountain, but the top is still in fairly good condition.

Temperatures should fall back below freezing for the first time in days overnight, with plenty of snow in the forecast for tomorrow.
