4.27 Snow Before You Go: 2 Storms & Heavy Snow for West

Copyright: Meteorologist Chris Tomer

Winter is not over out West. The second ski season continues with two storm systems lined up with heavy snow accumulations over the next five days. In the Northeast, warm temperatures keep most of the precipitation as rain.  

Colorado, Utah: A storm system keeps the snow falling on Thursday and Friday, followed by a strong cold front on Saturday with additional accumulations. Another storm system arrives early next week with a cold front and snow. I'm forecasting heavy snow accumulations in Utah on Thursday with moderate accumulations on Friday. In Colorado, moderate to heavy accumulations on Thursday trickling into Friday. A reinforcing cold front arrives on Saturday with moderate to heavy snow accumulations. Snowbird, Loveland, Arapahoe Basin and Winter Park look to be prime on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Wyoming, Montana, Idaho: Moderate to heavy snow continues on Thursday and Friday, especially in Wyoming. A second storm arrives Sunday into Monday with light to moderate snow accumulations. Backcountry skiers will find new powder on Thursday and Friday with some sunshine on Saturday and early Sunday. 

Whistler/BlackcombModerate to heavy snow continues on Thursday and diminishes on Friday. Heavy snow returns with a second storm on Saturday night through Sunday.  

Pacific Northwest: A moist flow continues with heavy snow on Thursday and Friday in the high Cascades and volcanoes. Saturday starts dry then another storm arrives Saturday night through Sunday with moderate accumulations.  

California: After Thursday, the pattern really dries out as the jet stream shifts north. That said, skiing on Thursday appears to be the best as the storm departs.  

Northeast: Temperatures will run warmer than normal through the weekend. There is at least one storm system in my forecast but it will be mostly rain. Colder air moves in around the middle of next week.
