Reversal of fortune for the West; atmospheric river PNW

Tomer’s Take

  • Reversal of fortune for the West after 2-3 solid weeks of back to back active storm cycles.
  • Large dome of high pressure building across the Intermountain West through 1/15.
  • A warmer and drier than normal 6 day period for CO, UT, WY, MT, ID, NM, and CA as a split jet develops over the Pacific.
  • The exception is the Pacific Northwest (PNW), British Columbia, and western Alberta where snow is likely with an active storm track.
  • A weak to moderate intensity atmospheric river hits the above mentioned areas between 1/11-1/13.
  • This will also inject warmer air and push snow levels high.
  • Zero snow in my California and Utah forecast through 1/16.
