US and Canada Daily Snow

Heads up, there may be fresher snow! Read the latest US and Canada Daily Snow

Unsettled Spring Pattern


A series of disturbances will bring periods of snow and rain showers to the Northwest and Northern/Central Rockies during the second half of this week through early next week. The Northern/Western Great Lakes will also see more snow over the next week while the higher elevations of the Appalachians will also receive light snow at times.

Short Term Forecast

More snow for Canada and the Northern U.S.:

The storm track will favor the Northwest and Northern Rockies over the next 5 days with multiple rounds of snow showers. Snow levels will be low initially, but will rise this weekend and early next week as warmer air arrives. The Upper Midwest and East will remain in an active pattern as well with heavy snow possible across Northern Minnesota, while the higher elevations of New England and the Mid-Atlantic will also see light snow.

Forecast for Wed, Apr 19 – Thu, Apr 20:

Snow showers can be expected across the Cascades and the Rockies during this period with cold air ensuring that snow levels remain low for this time of year. The eastern side of the Continental Divide in Montana will be favored for the deepest snow totals.

Back-to-back storms will impact the Upper Midwest during this period with a mix of rain and snow, with heavy snow expected across Northern Minnesota on Thursday. Snow flurries can be expected across the higher elevations of New York & New England on Wednesday followed by dry conditions on Thursday.

Forecast for Fri, Apr 21 – Sat, Apr 22:

An unsettled and showery pattern will continue across the Northwest and the Northern Rockies during this period. However, warmer air will result in rising snow levels across the Cascades and BC Coast Range with a changeover from snow to rain in some areas. 

Snow will linger across the Upper Midwest on Friday then rain will spread into the Appalachians on Friday night and Saturday. As a cold front moves through on Saturday, some of the higher peaks of West Virginia could see a changeover to snow. 

Forecast for Sun, Apr 23 – Mon, Apr 24:

A storm will impact the Northwest and the Rockies during this period. Warmer air will result in rising snow levels across the Rockies, while the Northwest should see colder air and falling snow levels by Monday. Snow is also expected further north in Northern BC and Southeast Alaska.

Lingering moisture from Saturday's storm will result in additional light rain showers and high-elevation snow showers across parts of the East as well as the Great Lakes. 

Extended Forecast

Outlook for Tue, Apr 25 – Sat, Apr 29:

High pressure building along the West Coast will result in above-average temps, while a colder airmass will remain over the Rockies with an active northwest flow pattern keeping snow chances going, especially near and perhaps east of the Continental Divide. Further north, an active pattern is also expected across Northwest BC and Southeast Alaska.

A cooler-than-average pattern is also expected across the East with occasional rain, possibly mixing with light snow at times across the higher elevations of the Appalachians.
