"Atmospheric River" Conclusion Could Bring MASSIVE Snow Totals To The West

By

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, BC30 inches

Mount Baker, WA15 inches

Mount Shasta, CA33 inches

Heavenly, CA10 inches

Mammoth Mountain, CA21 inches 

Second Period (1/15-1/21)

Whistler Blackcomb, BC: 34 inches

Mount Baker, WA57 inches

Mt Bachelor, OR28 inches

Mammoth Mountain, CA29 inches

Schweitzer, ID19 inches

Park City, UT38 inches

Purgatory, CO29 inches

Steamboat, CO23 inches
