US Extended Snowfall Outlook
Updated September 18, 2017

UNSETTLED ACROSS THE WEST --> This week we expect a few Gulf of Alaska storms to move through the western US, and drops snow to some mountain areas across Washington, Oregon (Cascades), Idaho, Montana, Wyoming (northern Rocky Mountains), California, Nevada (Tahoe), and Utah (Wasatch). By Saturday we may see some snow for Colorado also, as the trough weakens, warms up some, and shifts east. Luckily, the mountains and resorts in Colorado are so elevated, that despite the warming, snow is still possible. More details are coming. The East Coast (+ the resorts) will be sitting under a high pressure ridge, with warmer than average weather. CM

BY and AFTER THIS WEEKEND...
High pressure ridging will start to dominate the western US, for quite a late summer season warm-up. This should affect all areas, though Colorado will be dealing with some unsettled weather to start (Sat and Sun). This ridge over the west should last through 7 to 10 days, turning unsettled again (storms) after the first few days of October, but more so by the 10th or so as low pressure deepens across the west (colder, snow more likely for many areas).

Forecast discussion for northern Utah/ Wasatch Mountains

Updated (OLD) for Friday, March 17, 2017, at 12:30pm...
Today and Saturday look warm, very spring-like in temperature and likely snow conditions... High pressure ridging causes this, with mostly sunny skies as this pattern dominates the western US (its in the 90's to near 100 across the southwest deserts!).
Sunday and Monday look continued warm, with increased and gusty winds due to a storm passing by to the north. The high pressure ridge weakens due to this. Hang in there, because snow is on the way my friends...
On a warm and spring-like, mostly sunny (but with increasing winds) Tuesday, we expect low pressure to be moving into California, and this is expected to move through Utah by Tuesday night through Thursday, with mostly moderate snowfall across northern Utah including Powder Mountain. Snow levels will be an issue to start, running 8,500 feet or so Tuesday night and Wednesday (southwest flow), for some wet snow even to Alta/ Snowbird/ Brighton base elevations to start. Later Wednesday and Thursday look colder, and snow levels drop nicely, with a west/ northwest flow of winds across the mountains then, but we will have to watch. This kicks off potential almost daily snowfalls through the rest of March and into April, and some big storms also. Its not over yet! CM

LONGER RANGE...
We will be seeing some accumulating snow on an almost daily basis, moderate to heavy at times through the rest of March and into early April (on track). CM
