powderchasers.com – Snow continues to fall over areas of northern Colorado impacted by NW Flow such as Vail, Aspen and perhaps Steamboat. Today’s winners in Colorado were Eldora near Boulder where 8-10 fell by 11 AM. Areas near Breckenridge also did well with Vail catching up fast (light to moderate snow showers). Tomorrow might be good for leftovers and 3-5 new overnight at Vail.
The Wasatch and Tetons did very well over the past 48 hours with up to 21 inches at Grand Targhee, 18 at Jackson and the southern Wasatch of Utah.
The long term outlook looks relatively quiet for the upcoming week. Light moisture will continue over the northern mountains of Colorado and increase slightly Sunday evening ( Utah and northern Colorado ). light snow showers may linger over Colorado near the divide into Tuesday. The middle of next week should bring some light to moderate moisture into the Sierra, southern Oregon, and central Idaho with warmer air.
That moisture moves into the Wasatch and Tetons after weakening by next weekend. The models advertise moderate moisture over the Rockies late next weekend turning heavy at times the following week. The first week of April looks very active for the Rockies with fairly high snow levels. The Cascades might see a cold storm early that week! Get out now and enjoy the fresh snow before things warm up considerably in the extended periods.
