Warm weekend, storm system next week

Tomer’s Take

  • Abnormally warm temps are likely this weekend across the West with 50s and 60s at the base of many ski areas.
  • High pressure stays in control through 3/28 then a storm system hits CA and moves east, 3/28-4/1. Confidence is low on what happens after 4/1.
  • This storm system runs into a very warm airmass and precipitation starts as rain in some mountain valleys before changing to snow.

After 4/1

Confidence is low with mixed data, but it’s possible high pressure rebuilds across the West. This is one possible outcome.

Forecast pressure anomalies valid 4/2, GFS interpretation.

Snow Forecast

This outcome assumes a stormier pattern after 4/1 rather than high pressure rebuilding.
