The best snow this Friday-Monday will be in the Northeast, thanks to an active storm track. The more the jet stream digs south across New England, the more big storms develop. I'm watching two different chances for snow at the ski resorts. Temperatures remain much colder than normal as well.
Out west, the pattern stays mild with very little new snow until Monday, when a Canadian cold front drops south through Montana and Wyoming.
Northeast: This is the place to be for the best snow conditions and best chances for new snow from Friday through Monday. There are two different storms I’m watching. The first one hits with light accumulations on Thursday-Friday, with a brief lull in the action late Friday. The second storm hits with light to moderate accumulations on Saturday and continues into Sunday. Monday looks dry and cold. Mount Snow, Killington, Sugarloaf, Sugarbush, Catamount, Thunder Ridge, Camelback, Wachusett Mountain and Okemo all look good.
Rockies: I'm just not seeing much snow in this weekend's forecast from Friday through Monday. Monday holds the best chance of new snow as a Canadian cold front drops south through Montana and Wyoming. The pattern turns snowier and colder late next week.
California: The pattern just doesn't favor any new snow, and temperatures stay mild. Will the pattern change? There are some signs that it could change late next week. I'll keep you posted on the latest developments.
