Our favorite meteorologist Chris Tomer is predicting a couple more large snow dumps to finish off this lengthy time of massive snow falls throughout the west created by an atmospheric river of moisture.
Two notable periods of snowfall are going to hit the west, with the first (1/12-1/14) mainly hitting the Pacific Northwest and the second (1/15-1/21) hitting a massive region of the entire west.
Here’s a breakdown of snowfalls throughout each period:
First Period (1/12-1/14)
Whistler Blackcomb, BC: 30 inches
Mount Baker, WA: 15 inches
Mount Shasta, CA: 33 inches
Heavenly, CA: 10 inches
Mammoth Mountain, CA: 21 inches
Second Period (1/15-1/21)
Whistler Blackcomb, BC: 34 inches
Mount Baker, WA: 57 inches
Mt Bachelor, OR: 28 inches
Mammoth Mountain, CA: 29 inches
