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 Feb 14, 2018
LONG RANGE OUTLOOK from snowforecast.com - Feb 15, 2018

Wednesday, Feb 14, 2018

LONGER RANGE: Saturday/ Sunday (17th-18th) through late next week we expect a busy pattern, with all areas of the west seeing frequent snow, some areas like Colorado should see snow every day it looks like, and with heavy snow for Colorado overall Sunday through next week, more moderate to maybe heavy for Utah and the northern Rocky Mountains (including the inland Northwest)/ Southwest Canada, and mostly light snow across Tahoe, but at least it will be snowing again. Winter is definitely coming back!

--> Late February and into March should be busy for the western US, with frequent storms for Tahoe and Utah, moving across Colorado also as the east Pacific ridge breaks down some (Feb 20th-22nd), allowing strong Pacific energy and moisture to move into the western US and southwest Canada, with abundant snowfall for all areas including those parched in recent months like in California. This should have been the pattern across the western US already, if patterns were anything near "normal" so far in 2018... Do You want to see OTHER AREAS mentioned, email me and let me know... CM
