Forecast discussion for the Upper Midwest

Updated --  April 24th 12:43pm Highlights-  Last post of the season... ****************************************************

Short Range- 0-6 days- (Following is written solely for N.MN and the UP of MI as they are likely the only areas left in the region that still have ski resorts open)

Pattern change from recent warmth to much cooler conditions has already taken place or it soon to do so. Mid week snows for the Arrowhead of MN- accumulations likely in the 2-5" range. Snow will melt, but not as fast as it should this time of year with temps  below freezing at night and upper 30's  until late in the  weekend.

********************************************************** Long Range 7-21+ (updated 12:48pm  April 24th) Temps should return to near normal temps for the first week of May. Remains of the previous colder pattern may linger enough to produce some very light snows sometime around Friday,  May 5th.  Should have more May like temps for the 2nd full week of May. Thanks for reading. Next update --when conditions are warranted.   JB
US Extended Snowfall Outlook
LONG RANGE OUTLOOK from snowforecast.com - Jan 18, 2018

The start of winter has been a bit delayed from what we forecast back in mid-December (by about a week), but is here, no doubt, and will be with us for the rest of January and into February most likely, with plenty of cold and snowy storms on the way...

Today and Friday we expect snow to fall across the Sierra Nevada (Tahoe-Mammoth), and Wasatch mountain ranges (Salt Lake Utah resort areas), to the tune of a foot of fresh for both Tahoe and Mammoth before its all over, and also 6 inches to a foot of snow for Colorado! Southern California will also see some snow, with some light snow expected in Big Bear mainly on Friday.

Do you want to ski or board in 6 inches to 1 foot of mostly fresh snow, while the sun shines? Go to Tahoe or Mammoth. Do you want to ski or board while its snowing, and 6 inches to 1 foot or more of snow expected? Go to Colorado or Utah for the freshest turns...

The coming weeks will be more busy and we expect frequent snowfalls across all resort areas of the western US and Western Canada. Follow your favorite forecasts at www.snowforecast.com.

LONGER RANGE: We expect a busy pattern (frequent snows) across the western US and Canada into early February.
