What’s Next?

Tomer’s Take: The waiting game continues for the Central and Northern Rockies with high pressure in control. A pattern shift occurs on/after 3/21. A single storm system and buckling jet delivers moderate to heavy snow accumulation to PNW/BC/MT/WY/ID/CA/UT/CO. A second storm system appears to be missing or much weaker. Timing *Updated 4:15pm 3/18/2024. Totals trending […]

What’s Next?

Tomer’s Take: The big Colorado storm system is sliding south and retrograding West where it will sit and spin for several days. Accumulation next 5 days occurs in Southern CO, NM, Southern UT, and AZ. It stays high and dry in the Central and Northern Rockies, PNW/BC through 3/19. Then the pattern shifts with a […]

Update: Classic Colorado March Snowstorm

Tomer’s Take: Another 1-2 feet of snow accumulation in the Foothills of Colorado by early 3/15 then snow tapers off. It’s a backbreaker snow accumulation with marginal temps for many locations including Denver. This storm system gets cut-off from the main flow 3/15-3/20 and retrogrades west into AZ/UT. The pattern dries out in the Central/Northern […]

Classic Colorado Snowstorm 3/13-3/15

I’m forecasting 1-3 feet of total snow accumulation on the Continental Divide-East above 6,000ft, Foothills, Western Suburbs, Palmer Divide, and Southern Colorado. Northern New Mexico could see 10-20 inches. Denver starts as rain 3/13 then changes to snow overnight into […]

Denver gets rain on 3/13 changing to snow overnight into 3/14. Heavy accumulation especially above 6,000ft, west of I-25, and across the Palmer Divide. Significantly less in Northern Colorado, Fort Collins, and Greeley. Timing *Updated […]

The Week Ahead

Tomer’s Take: Light snow accumulation continues across VT/NH/ME into early 3/11. Out West, the stormtrack favors the PNW/BC/Northern Tier through 3/11 then the northern jet buckles south into UT/WY/CO 3/12-3/14 with moderate to heavy snow accumulation. The storm system strengthens in SE Colorado with enhanced snow accumulation on the Divide and across Southern Colorado. A […]
