One large storm system dominates the next five days. It starts out West then rolls East. Behind it, the jet stream (storm track) shifts north into the Pacific Northwest. 

A weak El Niño continues to influence the weather across the US. Southern track storm systems have been abundant over the last couple of months. The consensus of forecasts maintains a weak El Niño into summer.

The pattern is dry until the western storm system arrives in Utah on Thursday with snow in the Wasatch. That snow hits Colorado Thursday night into Friday. Snow tapers-off on Saturday morning. 2-8 inches of total snow is possible at the ski areas in Utah and Colorado by Saturday morning. Take a look at Alta, Snowbird, and Snowbasin on Friday. Take a look at Steamboat, Loveland, Winter Park, Vail, Breckenridge and Arapahoe Basin on Saturday.
