Spring Snow Continues to Fall in the West May 18, 2017

Snow continues to accumulate across the West and more is on the way. Most of the snow has been in the higher elevations, but even some of the valleys and foothills have seen significant accumulations.

Winter Storm Warnings extend from Nevada and Montana through Wyoming and Colorado. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for the Front Range of Colorado, including the Denver area.

More snow is ahead, with accumulations of 1 to 2 feet from the Tetons to the Rockies. Up to foot may fall in the valleys and foothills.

The slow and persistent low pressure center will spin along a stalled front into this evening. Heavy snow will fall through the Wyoming and Colorado, but diminish across the rest of the West.

Heavy snow will continue to accumulate in the Front Range and Rockies on Friday morning. As the low pressure system swings into the Plains, snowfall will gradually diminish Friday night.
