Spring skiing

Tomer’s Take

  • Big high pressure builds across the West through 3/28. Abnormally warm temperatures likely. Spring skiing is in full swing.
  • Then a storm system hits CA on 3/28 and moves east into ID, MT, WY, UT, CO, NM 3/29-4/2.
  • This storm system will run into warmer temps and some of the precipitation will start as rain or a rain/snow mix in many mountain valleys.
