A shifting jet stream means a dry stretch for the West over the next five days. Most of the remaining snow dries up on Thursday. On the other hand, the Northeast remains cold with snow showers through the weekend.
Northeast: I'm forecasting consistent chances for light snow each day between Thursday and Monday. Each day the ski areas receive 0-3 inches of accumulation. Jay Peak is in the best position—hit Jay Peak on Saturday or Sunday. It will also be a good stretch for Stowe, Sugarbush, Smugglers' Notch and Killington. Temperatures turn sharply colder on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
Pacific Northwest: The pattern turns much drier through the weekend. A storm may brush the Cascades on Sunday night into Monday. A larger storm could move in by Wednesday.
Whistler/Blackcomb: I'm forecasting only light snow chances through Saturday. A stronger storm may deliver snow on Sunday and Monday.
California: One last small wave of moisture on Thursday dries up quickly. Then I'm forecasting a dry five-day stretch. A storm system by Wednesday of next week could change the pattern.
Colorado, Utah: Snow dries up gradually on Thursday and high pressure settles in through Monday. It's going to be a dry five-day stretch and temperatures will warm up. It's back to leftover snow, groomers or finding powder in the backcountry. When will the pattern turn snowy again? It may not happen until late next week.
Wyoming, Montana, Idaho: Snow dries-up gradually on Thursday and high-pressure settles in through Monday. I don't foresee any big snow for the next five days. Enjoy the sunshine and warmer temperatures. Pattern may turn snowy again mid to late next week.
