A strong Idaho low, which formed late Thursday, September 26, prompted winter storm and snowfall warnings to be issued Friday, September 27. This vigorous low pressure system interacted with terrain in the southwest to bring total snowfall amounts as high as 80 centimetres, and blowing snow and gusty westerly winds behind the low as it moves eastward.
