i saw that too. i've seen one forecast for 1-3" for both Friday and Saturday, but also saw thre other reports (including the CAIC one) that are predicting 1-2 FEET of snow. since it is an upslope from the gulf, it is supposedly carrying alot of moisture, which is unusual considering most storms come from the opposite direction.
Wet, gloppy snow is lame for skiing, but it helps things like snowpack and kayaking and making sure the whole state isn't on fire. Cross your fingers. . .
