We are about a week into the Northern Pattern with 3 weeks remaining. The switch back to the Active West Pattern begins the first week of February. Canada continues to shine as snow continues to fall. Snowfall for the next week will be in the 1-2 ft range for the Coastal, Cassiar, Columbia and Powder Highway (Kootenay Rockies) mountain ranges.
Not much snow to talk about for the CONUS. There is a small system coming thru Friday that will bring a few inches to the Colorado Rockies, which we highlighted on the Colorado calendar (released Dec 13). The next predicted storm hits this weekend for New England.
The storm is running a little late, as have the last few predictions. When that happens, we adjust the cycle length to correct the variance. Many times the cycle length is not even, meaning it could be a 59 1/2, or 59 3/4 etc.
Light snow for the northern Cascades Crystal Mountain and maybe Stevens Pass, with falling temperatures and snow levels to 3500 ft. Friday and Saturday bluebird skies.
A couple 3 inches (2-3) for the northern mountains along I-70.
We don’t predict many storms for the eastern part of the country, because it is hard to predict. But occasionally, we throw our hat in for the big ones. This is what the storm looked like the last time it came thru and the projected path this time.
We have updated our chart. We are perfect so far (16/16). But this nor’ Easter could break the streak if its more than 2 days late. You can find the chart under the predictions tab.
