Forecast discussion

Today through Saturday, we see the next storm move through, with a somewhat similar trajectory, though this time Tahoe and Mammoth should get in on the action with potential heavy snow of 1 to 2 feet. The system favors the Cascades and also the northern and central Rocky Mountains, with more moderate to heavy snowfall at most resort areas, mainly Friday and Saturday for central Colorado and northern Utah.
Sunday and Monday (11th/ 12th) we see another storm move in with similar snowfall and areas affected as the Thursday/ Friday storm, and this should be another good one. Around/ after mid December; storms should be moving in and cutting farther south, affecting northern New Mexico (Taos) and other areas thus far not affected, like southern California as well. The pattern looks progressive/ busy with short breaks, not much blocking of storms (highly amplified north-south pattern, blocking high pressure, all NOT expected), and fresh snow on a fairly frequent basis. In other words, things are looking good for December from Tahoe to Colorado and areas north… CM
