- Periods of heavy snow through 1/7 for the PNW with 2-3 additional storm systems. Then high pressure builds for a few days.
- Jet stream shifts south through 1/8 and pushes heavy snow into ID, MT, WY, northern UT, and the Central & Northern Mountain zones of Colorado. Then high pressure builds 1/9-1/13.
- Totals in the Tetons 1/4-1/8 could reach 40-50″. The bulk of snow at Jackson Hole accumulates on 1/5 and 1/6.
- Totals in the Wasatch 1/4-1/8 could reach 30-36″. The bulk of snow at Snowbird accumulates on 1/5.
