    • This forecast appears to be for the top of Mt. Baker. Not sure they keep records for the mountaintop, but they do for the lower ski resort. The ski area averages about 640″ per year, and is credited with a world record of 1140″ in the 1998/99 winter.

      I think the amount forecasted is heavy and early. The water reservoir managers in Mt. Baker’s drainages have to be happy.

    • Probably a bit on the Heavy side, but the Cascade volcanos can get snow any time of the year. Heavy snowfalls usually start in late Oct / early Nov, so maybe a few weeks early. All in all, pretty normal weather for the WARMEST YEAR EVAH!!!

  1. This is why Mt. Baker’s glaciers are growing confirmed by geologist Don Easterbrook. Massive annual snow accumulation. There is no “man made global warming” melting Cascades glaciers. Receding or advancing it’s all a cycle.
