The storm track continues to favor the Northeast and Northern Rockies for the coldest air and best new snow this weekend. The largest dip in the storm track (jet stream) remains entrenched over the Northeast with a snowstorm sliding through on Saturday. I expect some rain in the valleys with the best snow at the ski resorts.
In the Northern Rockies, Montana appears to be in the best position for new snow this weekend. Precip may start as a rain/snow mixture at the resorts but then change to snow as colder air filters in. The Cascades are also in for snow if you're headed there.
Northeast: Snow hits the northern tier ski areas on Saturday. Flurries linger on Sunday and it looks dry on Monday. Snow amounts look light to moderate. The best new snow will fall at Jay Peak, Sugarloaf, Saddleback, Wildcat, Sunday River, Sugarbush and Stowe. There may be some rain in the valleys with the best snow at the ski areas.
Rockies: It looks pretty quiet and warm for Utah and Colorado this weekend. Snow will slide through northern Idaho and Montana, possibly brushing northern Wyoming on Saturday and Sunday. Some of the precip will fall as a rain/snow mix at the lower elevations then change to all snow as colder air filters in. Snow amounts look light to moderate. Another wave of rain/snow moves in Monday night into Tuesday. Take a look at Whitefish, Schweitzer and Big Sky.
California: It looks mild and rather dry at the resorts until Monday when a storm slides through. It just hasn't been a good season with the storm track guiding most of the storms too far north to benefit the ski areas.
