More Heavy Snow for the Western Mountains

26 Dec 2016, 4:53 pm

Another system in the Pacific Ocean will bring in another round of heavy snow to the mountains of the West. One to two feet of snow fell over the holiday period with a strong storm system, and much more is on the way with the next round of energy.

Another 1 to 2 feet of snow is possible in the Cascades and up to the foot in the Salmon-Challis range. Winter Storm Warnings have been issued through Wednesday.

Snow will increase tonight as a cold front moves ashore, supported by strong upper level energy. The Cascades will be the first area affected by the heavy snow.


As the upper level energy intensifies and moves into the coast, the front will continue to move eastward. On Tuesday, snowfall will spread towards the Bitterroots and Tetons.


Tuesday night into Wednesday the snow will start to diminish gradually in intensity, but will continue to fall. Some areas will see more than 2 feet of fresh powder.
