Here comes April

Tomer’s Take

  • A series of minor, fast-moving storm systems race through the Intermountain West through 4/9.
  • A larger storm system hits the Pacific Northwest 4/3-4/5 with significant high elevation snow accumulation.
  • April storm systems are normally warmer and snow levels run higher.
