The Western storm track shifts north into Canada over the next five days setting up a series of smaller Clipper-like storm systems on a northwest flow pattern for the Intermountain West. In the Northeast, a large storm system on Thursday starts as rain then changes to snow then ushering in much colder air for the weekend.

Colorado, Utah, Weather

Two different fast-moving storm systems will ride a northwest flow pattern over the next five days. The first occurs Wednesday afternoon through Thursday and the second between Sunday night and Monday. Both deliver light to moderate snow accumulations to the ski areas in Utah. Colorado appears to benefit the most and in some cases with heavy snow accumulations in the Central and Northern Mountain zones. Look at Alta, Snowbird and Snowbasin in Utah on Friday and Monday. In Colorado look at Loveland, A-Basin, Breckenridge, Winter Park, Vail and Steamboat through Monday.
