- Above average chance for snow in Northern Rockies.
- Below average temps for Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, and Colorado
NOAA released its October precipitation and temperature outlook for the month of October and it’s more of the same for the Northern Rockies– cold and unseasonably snowy.
That trend stretches from interior BC through northern Colorado and the front range. The bullseye for precipitation is located firmly over Idaho and western Montana.

Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, and Colorado should all see snowfall throughout the month and if it keeps up in Steamboat, they’ll be skiing in northern Colorado by the end of the week. They join skiers in Montana and Utah as the first places to see powder turns this early in the season.
Let It Snow!
