More Snow Across the West Jan 11, 2017

The snow hasn’t slowed down yet in the Western U.S. and it will keep going for at least another day. From the Pacific Coast to the Front Range, the snow continues to fly. Significant accumulations were reported in Oregon, especially around Portland, which led to traffic problems.

Portland saw 8-12″ in the last 24 hours, with more than a foot in the west hills.

California has seen the most moisture in the last week, especially in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Many ski resorts have reported over 100 inches of snow in the last 7 days. In some areas, more than 50″ has fallen in the last 24 hours.

Winter Storm Warnings remain in effect for the Tetons, Rockies, Wasatch and the Sierra. More than a foot is likely for all of the ranges, with another 2-5 feet in the Sierra. The moisture will begin to diminish on Friday.

A cold front is marching across the West, keeping the snowfall dropping. A low pressure center will push into the California Coast tomorrow, streaming more moisture into the region. The snow is expected to continue through Friday and start to diminish this weekend.
