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
Updated November 30, 2017

SNOW this weekend for the Pacific Northwest to Tahoe, Monday snow for Colorado south to Taos...
We expect a fairly strong low pressure system to move through the Pacific Northwest and drop snow south to Tahoe, mostly light, but heavier snow for the cascades and northern Rocky Mountains of Idaho/ Montana/ Wyoming, before hitting Colorado with mostly light snow on Monday, then south to Taos Monday/ Tuesday. Check our all new (format) forecasts for the details.

-From Tuesday the 5th to about Tuesday the 12th, we expect a large "Omega" high to form across the western US/ coastal. This is expected to block all storm s from hitting most ski areas of the western US. The only areas that may see some snow are in the extreme Pacific Northwest/ southwest Canada, and Colorado may get dusted with some quick snows, otherwise the entire west is looking mild and mostly sunny. If you want the real insight on what is coming in the longer range, useable information, then keep checking back with the site that has been "Predicting Sick Days since 1998". Have a great season! CM
