Powderchaser Luke filling in for Steve today. After a brief break in the Rockies resulting from a rarely seen (this season) ridge, storms are once again lining up. The focus will be on the Southern part of the Western US, including Utah (PCMR), Colorado (Vail), and New Mexico. Although cold air is harder to find this time of year, Spring can deliver some big storms. After the storms this week, more are aimed for the Western US next week as well. The East will get in on the action this weekend too.

Utah

The storm in central and southern Utah is already underway, and the focus will remain there the next few days, with Eagle Point and Brian Head seeing 8-16” by the end of the storm. Eagle Point opens on Friday with some solid totals, definitely worth consideration for the chase. Northern Utah will start to get in on the action today as well. Temps will be on the warm side but you can expect 6-12” by Friday, including Park City Mountain Resort, with another storm expected this weekend, again with similar totals, and possibly some colder air and chase worthy snow.

Colorado

The rich get richer as the part of the state that has seen the most above average snowfall to this point is in the bullseye once again. Southwestern Colorado will be the overall winner with this storm, as the higher elevations of the San Juan’s will generally see 8-16\" with up to 2 feet of snow from today through Saturday, with SW favored resorts such as Silverton, Purgatory, and Wolf Creek being favored. Telluride will see lesser amounts. Northern and Central Colorado will get decent totals as well, generally in the 3-7\" range, with Vail getting some solid totals.

New Mexico

New Mexico will see some snow with this storm tonight through tomorrow. Taos, Red River, and Ski Sante Fe should all see in the 3-6\" range during this period.

New England

A significant snowstorm will affect the New England mountains this week, with the heaviest snowfall occurring Friday afternoon to Saturday afternoon. The storm will start out warm initially, with large variation in snow totals depending on elevation and very dense snow. The warm temperatures won't last though, and as the cold air moves in, the northern spine of the green mountains will get hammered. This is a great type of storm for Stowe, Smuggler's Notch, and Jay Peak, who will see 10-20\" by midday Saturday. I wouldn't be surprised to see someone to 2 feet by the end of the storm. By midnight Friday temps should be cold enough to produce good quality snow in this area. Both Friday and Saturday will offer chaseable amounts in Northern Vermont. Central and Southern Vermont will do well also, with 8-16\" expected by the end of the storm. Interior Maine and Northern New Hampshire will get snow as well, but the cold air doesn't move in as quickly so expect lesser totals, in the 4-8\" range for areas like Wildcat, Sunday River, and Sugarloaf. The northern Adirondacks in New York should get slammed as well.

Mid Range

Storms continue next week starting with the Sierra on Monday. This not overly impressive storm will likely migrate NE into Idaho and Wyoming before weakening and dissipating. There won't be much of  a break however as another potentially stronger and colder storm (seen below) will begin to impact the Sierra and Western US starting around Wednesday. More details to come on this storm in a later post.
