Powder day! One more storm system then high pressure

Tomer’s Take

  • It’s a powder day in the Wasatch, Tetons, and the Central & Northern Mountains of Colorado.
  • Parts of the Snowy Range and Sierra Madre in Wyoming received 30 inches or more.
  • There’s one more storm system sliding down the jet stream between Friday-Saturday for ID, MT, WY, UT, and CO.
  • Then high pressure builds and the snow machine stops (except in the PNW/B.C.) until potentially 1/14.

Powder day at Loveland Ski Area!

The northwest-oriented jet stream will keep the snow falling in the Wasatch, Tetons, and Central & Northern Mountains of Colorado. Notice on the infrared satellite the next low pressure hitting the Pacific Northwest. That hits the interior Rockies between Friday-Saturday.

Infrared satellite with storm track 1/6/2022 5am.

Then high pressure builds into the West. This will curtail snowfall for at least a few days across the Interior West.
