Meteorologist Chris Tomergives us the run down on where will be the snowiest this weekend, 1/14-1/17. The hot spots this week are the Pacific Northwest and the Northeast.

 

Pacific Northwest

The atmospheric river comes to an end on Thursday.  But, smaller storm systems are lined-up.  One on Friday and another on Sunday with light to moderate snow accumulation.  Snow levels were high during the atmospheric river with high density snowfall on the highest volcanoes and highest Cascades.
 

Banff

The atmospheric river comes to an end on Thursday.  Thursday is probably the best powder day of the next 5 days.  But, smaller storm systems are lined-up.  One on Friday and another on Sunday with light to moderate snow accumulation.

Montana, Idaho, Wyoming

The final windy storm system associated with the atmospheric river slides through with moderate snow accumulation on Wednesday ending by Thursday morning.  Thursday is the best powder day of the next 5 days.  Look at Jackson Hole, Schweitzer, Big Sky, and Sun Valley.  A much smaller storm system slides through Friday night into Saturday with light accumulation.  Another storm system slides through Sunday-Monday with moderate snow accumulation.

Colorado, Utah

A windy storm system blows through Wednesday night into Thursday morning with light snow accumulation.  Another small storm system possible Friday night into Saturday.  Watching another storm system for Monday-Tuesday.  Overall, the best "powder" day is probably Thursday and it's minor.
 

California

The final storm in the atmospheric river brushes Northern California on Wednesday and then it's dry through the weekend. 

 

Northeast

A clipper slides through on Thursday with spotty, light snow accumulation.  A larger storm system (possible Nor Easter) hits between Friday night and Sunday morning.  Moderate to heavy snow accumulation possible at the ski areas in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Northern Maine.  The ultimate track of the low is critical to determine where the heaviest snow sets up.  Look to Jay Peak, Okemo, Mount Snow, Killington, Wildcat, Stowe, and Sugarloaf.
