Mountain Snows Continue in the Northwest

20 Dec 2016, 4:16 pm

Another round of heavy snow continues for the Northwest, adding to the snowpack that is deepening in the region. Ski resorts will welcome the additional snow, but it is another nuisance storm for travelers. Snowfall is already over a foot with this storm in some of the higher elevations. Some mixed precipitation is possible as well into this evening.

The Bitterroots and Cascades could see another foot of snow before the storm departs tomorrow and Thursday. Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories continue for much of the region.

Strong gusty winds are also causing trouble for travelers. Gusts to 70 mph are possible into Wednesday morning, with sustained winds above 30 mph in several areas. High Wind Warnings continue in areas of Montana and Wyoming.

The low pressure center and cold front will push through the region tonight and into the Upper Midwest tomorrow. Snow will gradually decrease with this system, but another low at the end of the week will produce another round of snow for the region.
