Snow forecast next 8 days: Atmospheric river delivers

I started this Saturday off with a fantastic workout in the Foothills of Colorado. This time I was greeted my much colder temps and an inch of snow on parts of the trail. I also bumped into my friend Justin Becker and we finished the trail run together. Great seeing and chatting with him! Atmospheric […]

Powder weekend and atmospheric river into next week

Tomer’s Take The forecast for 1-2 feet materialized across parts of Colorado and Utah. Weak to moderate atmospheric river hits Pacific Northwest Friday night-Saturday with 25-50 inches. Weak to moderate atmospheric river hits California’s High Sierra 12/12-12/14 with 40-80 inches. That storm system then breaks loose and hits Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, SW Montana, and Colorado […]

The main event for Utah and Colorado remains the 3rd storm system of the cycle. It’s currently exiting California and will move into Utah then Colorado between Thursday and Friday.

It’s also colder and windier. Snow Forecast The first two storm systems help to […]

Snow (finally) for the West this week

2-3 different storm systems are lined-up for the Intermountain West through 12/11. The first storm system will lose strength battling the bulletproof area of high pressure. But, this greases the atmospheric skids for the final two storm systems. Notice the dipping storm track over Hawaii on this infrared satellite image. This is the pattern change […]

2-3 storm systems next week across the West

I started Saturday off with a trail run in the Foothills of Colorado. The weather here has been incredibly warm and dry the last two weeks. I thought extensively about the mountain weather forecast for next week. My conclusions: 2-3 storm systems possible across the West. The first storm system becomes weaker and weaker as […]

Snow forecast next week across the West

2-3 different storm systems remain possible next week across the Intermountain West. The first storm system will likely lose strength and snow potential as it battles the massive high pressure ridge currently anchored over the West. This will create wild fluctuations in snow forecasts through this weekend. You can see the storm track (yellow), high […]
