Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 30 November to 09 December, 2014 - A large and cold Gulf of Alaska low pressure system will be developing for early next week (30th onward into December), delivering significant snow to west coast resorts all the way to Canada, and some even to southern California resort areas (on track). That low pressure system hits the Rocky Mountains afterward, from the northern Rocky Mountains south, with Colorado and northern New Mexico (Taos and Aspen) seeing snow Monday through Wednesday (Dec 1-3). A brief break of sunshine follows, and storms should be pretty regular, so we do not expect a long period of sun/ warming. CM

Longer Range Outlook

November 2014, we are still on a path to see a weak El Nino Sea Surface Temperature pattern hold across the Equatorial Eastern Pacific. Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies yield a weak El Nino pattern across the eastern Equatorial Pacific (El Nino development is on track, but it will be weak, still somewhat favorable for California and the desert Southwest, plus much of Colorado and northern New Mexico).

Current SST pattern- El Nino

A weak El Nino (or possible "neutral" pattern) is expected for this winter, into early 2015.

Current SST pattern- El Nino

Northwest US areas, and southwest Canada, along with northern Colorado through Wyoming and the northern Rocky Mountains, should expect a drier than average, or near average snowfall winter (2014-2015). Tahoe/ Mammoth should see near average snowfall, with near average snowfall also expected across southern California and northern Arizona resorts. CM
