The storm-track turns a little quieter this weekend. But, there is snow in the forecast for the Central Rockies and Northeast.
Northeast: An Alberta Clipper delivers cold, wind and snow on Thursday and Friday to the ski areas. A coastal storm with wind and snow is possible on Monday. Snow accumulations on Thursday through Friday look light to moderate with the moderate snows confined to northern Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
Colorado, Utah and New Mexico: Moderate snow accumulations on Thursday and Friday in the central and northern mountains of Colorado. Lighter accumulations in the Wasatch of Utah, and it may miss New Mexico entirely. Colder than normal temperatures Thursday through Friday, then rapidly warming through the weekend.
Wyoming, Montana and Idaho: Light to moderate snow accumulations on Thursday and Friday. Wyoming appears to be in the best position for the moderate accumulations. Cold temps. Then dry weather until Monday night.
California: Dry until Sunday night when the next storm system moves in. That storm looks significant but might start out warm with high snow levels.
Pacific Northwest: Rather dry with only very light precipitation until the next big storm system arrives Sunday night through Monday with heavy rain and snow. Snow levels may start out quite high before colder air moves in.
Tomer's Take: Ski Big Sky or Jackson Hole on Friday for new powder, Loveland or Winter Park on Saturday for new powder, in the sunshine at Snowbird on Sunday, and at Sunday River or Sugarloaf on Monday.
