The northern Rockies have been under the gun for most of the winter, and the favorable storm track will continue for this area for the next two weeks. That said, snow won’t fall as consistently as it did through February, but multiple storms will still impact the region through the end of March.
The first storm will move northwest to southeast on Friday and Saturday. Snowflakes will begin to fall in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming on Friday night and continue into Saturday morning with 3–6” of accumulation. This storm will then hit Colorado on Saturday with a similar amount of snow.
After a dry Sunday and much of Monday, a second storm will follow a similar path to the first and will bring another 3–6” to Idaho, Montana and Wyoming on Monday night into Tuesday morning. Colorado will also get clipped by this storm, with 2–4" falling on Tuesday morning.
I still have very low confidence in what will happen later next week, from March 20th to 24th. A large storm will likely form along the west coast during this time, and it might push east and north through Utah, Wyoming, Idaho and Montana through the weekend. But there are many other scenarios that could play out, so check back next week for an update.
