The storm that was predicted for the December 17th is arriving a day and a half early—we have corrected the timeline for the storms that follow. When predicting storms months in advance there can be variances in the flow (of the atmosphere) that speed up (less drag) or slow down. So there’s always that caveat of 1 to 2 day’s of when systems hit.
We are adding the next big storm system to our predictions. If you haven’t already, make reservations for Christmas! OK so let’s break down the storm.
December 21st spinning in the PNW
December 22nd-23rd, the storm reaches Tahoe , then Utah, and western Colorado
Christmas Eve Colorado and northern New Mexico. Christmas Day Colorado
The last time it came through it’s favored the southern mountains of Colorado, but the northern mountains did well too. Don’t forget, that all of these storms will recycle again for the next cycle. After I see the storm show up on the GFS I will release my January, February, and March Future Snow report.
