Conditions in the northern Rockies have been fantastic with Jackson Hole reporting fresh snow every day of February except for two of them. Other areas in Wyoming and Montana have also seen a fantastic 10-day stretch.
The great news is that more snow is on the way to all of the Rocky Mountains, including southern regions that have not seen snow in many weeks. Multiple storms will drop powder from Thursday through Sunday, and potentially into next week as well.
The first storm will be of moderate strength on Thursday and Thursday night. About 4-8" will fall in Utah, Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana.
The second storm on Friday night through the weekend will be much stronger, with 1-2 feet of snow likely for many areas of Arizona, New Mexico, southern Utah and southern and central Colorado. Mountains outside these regions will see lower but still significant accumulations, so it’ll be a good weekend for all.
And looking ahead to next week, additional storms may continue to stream across the northern Rockies, from Montana to Idaho, Wyoming, and northern Utah and Colorado. This is a great way to ring in the month of March, so get out there and enjoy!
