The Miracle March storms, which brought 150-225 inches of snow to California, are over. But the snow is not over for the west. The weather pattern will simply shift a bit to the east, bringing frequent light-to-moderate strength storms to the Rockies (Montana, Wyoming, Colorado) through early April.
Short Term Forecast
The storm track from late March through at least early April will favor the most powder along the spine of the Rockies, from British Columbia south to Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado.
The snow forecast from Monday, March 26 to Friday, March 30th clearly shows the favored area. Expect storms every few days, each dropping light-to-moderate snow amounts (3-8 inches or so). While no single storm may bring a big powder day, back-to-back-to-back storms should ensure that the base continues to build into April.
The forecast for the weekend, Saturday, March 31st to Sunday, April 1st, shows the same pattern as the preceding week, with storms favoring the spine of the Rockies.
Looking ahead to early April, the forecast for temperature compared to average shows a large area of below average temperatures from the spine of the Rockies extending east to the east coast.
If this temperature forecast verifies as truth, it would mean a continuation of powder along the spine of the Rockies, and also the likelihood of more powder for northern New England.
