High pressure ridging dominates the western US and southwest Canada mainly by mid and late next week as the eastern US gets a turn at unsettled weather (24th of October onward for about a week). It is looking like some seriously cold air and unusual pre-Halloween snowfalls are possible in many areas of the eastern US, with snow possible even to northern Georgia and Mississippi! Around or just after Halloween, expect a shift back to unsettled for the western US, with more snow and probably colder than usual weather, early season additional accumulations for the Northwest US and Bogus basin also. Early November looks busy with storms and snow all across the western US and southwest Canada.
Expect a colder and more snowy winter for Revelstoke, Kingfisher Heli, Bogus Basin, and Aspen this season! I am thinking early openings possible again on some great early season conditions for all areas mentioned. We are in a neutral ENSO pattern (no El Nino or La Nina), leaning to La Nina this winter 2019-2020. Meteorologist/ Chris Manly
