COLDER TEMPERATURES AND INCREASED SNOW LIKELY FOR THE END OF SEPTEMBER THORUGH PERHAPS MID OCTOBER IN THE FORECAST FOR THE NORTHERN ROCKIES

In the last week many western resorts saw their first snows of the season, with a few locations getting dumped with 1-3 feet. The next several weeks could bring a continued trend for additional systems to impact the Pacific Northwest and especially the northern Rockies. Models are only somewhat accurate in the 7 day maps below with more variance beyond that period. Currently we are confident on colder temperatures for much of the Northern and central Rockies as well as occasional low pressure systems impacting the West in the next 5 days. We wanted to share the latest Pow Buzz from Powderchasers.com from our official long term forecaster Luke Stone.

After a brief warm up at the end of this week, the west will once again be in a cool, wet pattern that could last through the middle of next month. Two troughs will impact the region over the next 10 days, both bringing chances for high elevation snow. The first system will move in this weekend and the second likely toward the middle/end of next week.

There is a possibility of a third round of unsettled weather the following weekend as well. Meanwhile, throughout this period, colder than average temperatures will persist throughout the west.
