Northwest Daily Snow

Late week respectable new snowfall for NW


The week will start with high pressure and a mostly clear Monday. Then a weak system will move in Tuesday with minor snowfall. After another brief break early Wednesday a new system will produce more substantial snowfall for late Wednesday into early Friday.

Short Term Forecast

Sunshine will prevail Monday and early Tuesday, then a weak storm moves into the region with increasing clouds and light snow, late Tuesday. The snow level will be about 4,500 ft for Wednesday with only a few inches of new. After a break during the day, there will be more unsettled weather coming Wednesday night into early Friday, with dropping snow levels later in the week. There is some decent potential with this storm. I would say 5”- 10” (48hr) in many areas, with 15” plus possible.

See below 48 hr snowfall late Wed to late Friday.

Extended Forecast

Unfortunately, higher pressure builds back in for the weekend and that means little or no new snowfall. I do not see the big change we need for now. I am looking for a few big storms or a sustained snowfall pattern. The forecast maps are just not showing it, although the Wed - Friday snowfall pattern of this week will help.
