A seemingly endless series of storms will continue to impact the West over the next 7 days with deep totals expected across most major ski regions. Temperatures will remain colder than average as well. The Northeast will see a shot of snow mid-week, before turning milder with more rain than snow this weekend and next week.
Short Term Forecast
Projected Snowfall over the Next Seven Days:
It's been an unbelievable season across the Western U.S. with many areas in California, Utah, Idaho, and Colorado approaching or exceeding season snowfall records. The pattern is not relenting just yet either with more storms on the way over the last few days of March and into the first few days of April.
Forecast for Wed, Mar 29 – Thu, Mar 30:
A storm will impact the West on Wednesday and Thursday with deep totals expected across the Sierra Nevada Range in particular, while moderate to heavy snow can also be expected across parts of Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah.
A weaker storm will also move across the Great Lakes, New York, New England, and Quebec during this period with light snow expected.
Forecast for Fri, Mar 31 – Sat, Apr 1:
Snow from the previous storm will linger across the Central Rockies on Friday, while a strong storm will make landfall across the Northwest on Friday-Saturday with heavy snow expected across British Columbia, Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.
A storm will also impact the Midwest and the East but warmer air arriving will result in a changeover from rain to snow across most of the Northeast. The Great Lakes region will see mixed precipitation, at least initially, but heavy snow will be possible in some areas on the colder backside of the storm.
Forecast for Sun, Apr 2 – Mon, Apr 3:
Storms will continue to impact the West during this period. There is some uncertainty regarding specific storm tracks, but the Pacific Northwest, Sierra, and Rockies will all at least have a chance of receiving significant snowfall.
Back-to-back storms will also impact the Northeast with snow initially expected for many areas on Sunday before changing to rain on Monday. The Great Lakes could also see a round of snow on Monday.
Outlook for Tue, Apr 4 – Sat, Apr 8:
An active pattern will continue across the West during this period with frequent storms along with colder-than-average temperatures. The East will see a warm-up during this period with precipitation favoring rain more than snow across New England.
