Snow forecast next 8 days

Tomer’s Take

  • The West is largely dominated by high pressure. A few small cold fronts will sneak through the eastern periphery through 1/23 with minor snow accumulation in MT, WY, UT, and CO.
  • Ski the Northeast this Sunday-Monday with a Nor` Easter on tap.
  • When will this pattern change for the Intermountain West? It could be a long wait and confidence is low. Potentially by 1/29 or later.

Infrared satellite shows the storm track and lack of activity across most of the West.

Looking down the road

A few small cold fronts will sneak through the eastern periphery of the Western high pressure. But, a larger pattern change could be a long way off. Below is one possible scenario around 1/29 with lower pressures building across the Intermountain West.
