Snow Hits Soon for West & Northeast: 1.10 Snow B4U Go- ©Meteorologist Chris Tomer

Tomer's Take: On Friday ski Whistler/Blackcomb or Banff, on Saturday ski Loveland, Winter Park or Arapahoe Basin and on Sunday ski Taos or Whistler/Blackcomb.

The overall pattern turns quieter over the next five days. The conveyor belt of storm systems in the Pacific Northwest slows down and that limits the snowfall throughout the Intermountain West. In the Northeast, it looks colder with a couple chances for snow showers.

We're still in El Nino watch. There's a 90 percent chance of El Nino developing but it hasn't happened yet. And, the sea surface temperatures in the equatorial South Pacific have actually cooled slightly since December 2018. Achieving a full-blown El Nino at this point might be difficult.  

Pacific Northwest Weather

Heavy mountain snow gradually winds down on Thursday. A storm system stalls off the coast between Sunday-Tuesday. It could send a couple waves of snow into the Cascades, Volcanoes and Olympics.  

Banff Weather

Snow winds down on Thursday. A storm system stalls off the coast of Washington and Oregon until possibly Tuesday, so it stays dry until then.

Whistler Blackcomb

Heavy snow continues on Thursday with on/off snow on Friday. Light to moderate snow comes back on Saturday then turns lighter on Sunday. Light snow returns on Monday. It might be hard to time these waves of snow with the storm systems stalled off the coast.

California Weather

Snow winds down on Thursday morning. Thursday should be a good ski day at Tahoe and Mammoth. The pattern dries out until possibly Saturday. But, this storm is uncertain and could stall. Another chance of snow arrives between Sunday night and Monday. Heavy snow is possible Tuesday-Wednesday.

Colorado, Utah, Weather

A wave of light snow could dust the Wasatch on Thursday arriving in Colorado possibly on Friday. This wave could stall over parts of Colorado into Friday night. Amounts stay light. It could stay dry Saturday, Sunday and Monday with new snow arriving Tuesday.
