It was the northeast that grabbed the headlines last week with multiple storms. Coming up for the Thanksgiving holiday week, it’ll be the west that will see multiple systems with 12+ inches of snow for many areas.
Short Term Forecast
More resorts open
Grand Targhee in western Wyoming is just one of the mountains that recently started spinning lifts for the season. They received 5 inches on Saturday (Nov 17) and the mountain already looks like winter.
Forecast for this week
The storm track will change from last week with snow falling across most of the western US and Canada during the upcoming week. California and Utah will likely see their first significant snows for the season as at least two storms should move through the west during the second half of the week.
Forecast for the weekend
During the upcoming weekend, a potentially significant storm could bring double-digit snowfall through the central-western US, from California and Oregon through Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado.
The snow forecast for the week after Thanksgiving is still rather uncertain.
It looks like storminess could hang on for at least part of the west (southwest?) and storms could move across the east coast, though precipitation could be mixed as indicated by the white and orange colors denoting warmer temperatures over New England.
