2.2.17 Snow Before You Go: Storm Surge Returns to West

2.2.17 Snow Before You Go: Storm Surge Returns to West

Copyright: Meteorologist Chris Tomer

An active storm track returns to the West over the next five days. Two storm systems are lined up. In the Northeast, I'm forecasting light snow accumulations through the weekend. 

California: This is where the heaviest snow accumulations will occur over the next five days. Two different storm systems are lined up for Tahoe south to Mammoth. The first storm delivers 1-3 feet of snow accumulation between Thursday and Saturday morning. The second storm system delivers another 1-2 feet between Sunday night and Tuesday. Both storm systems are quite warm and windy, so the heaviest snow will stay above 7,000 feet in elevation.  

Wyoming, Idaho, Montana: This should be a great five-day stretch with both storm systems delivering consistent, heavy snow accumulations to Sun Valley, Grand Targhee, Jackson Hole and Big Sky. Schweitzer and Whitefish are also in good position. I'm forecasting 1-3 feet of grand total snow accumulation at Sun Valley, Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee by Monday morning.

Pacific Northwest: Two large storm systems keep the snow falling in the Cascades and high volcanoes starting early Friday. 1-3 feet of grand total snow accumulation by Monday morning.  

Whistler/Blackcomb: Two large storm systems keep the snow falling over the next five days starting on Friday. Heavy snow accumulations through the weekend.  

Northeast: I'm forecasting light snow accumulations Thursday, Friday, Sunday and Monday at the ski areas. 0-2 inches of accumulation each of those days at Killington, Okemo, Mount Snow, Stowe, Jay Peak, Wildcat and Sugarbush. Temperatures stay quite cold through the weekend.

Colorado, Utah: The storm track is not optimal for a direct hit by both storm systems, however, snow is still likely. Light snow is possible on Thursday into Friday morning. Then a better chance of moderate snow moves in Friday night through Saturday. It looks very windy in Colorado on Saturday. A chance for heavier snow emerges Monday-Tuesday of next week. Steamboat, Aspen, Snowmass, Snowbasin, Alta and Snowbird are in good position.
