Snow Northeast; Western Pattern Pivots

Tomer’s Take: Snow continues in the Northeast into 1/26 then a series of Clippers arrive. A fast Northwest Flow dominates the West until 1/28 when the pattern pivots south delivering big totals.

My forecast video 1/25:

    I love your work. I am not seeing anything resembling your SW CO totals 1/28-2/3 on any of the deterministic or ensemble models. What am I missing?

      Thanks, Jeff. I’m still not 100% on totals. Watching the track/intensity of the southern low. Wolf Creek should top the list 1-2 feet. Chris
