Mountain Snows Continue in the West

27 Feb 2017, 3:46 pm

A series of storm systems will continue to bring heavy mountain snows to the Pacific Northwest and Four Corners region. Winter Storm Warnings have been issued from the Bitterroots through the Wasatch to the Rockies.

One to two feet of snow will accumulate in the highest mountain peaks this week. Heavy snow will continue in the higher elevations this evening in the Southwest, with scattered snowfall for the mountains in the Northwest.

Snow will continue to fall in the northwest as a low pressure center and cold front moves into Montana. Another weaker low will approach the Pacific Northwest Tuesday Night, keeping snowfall in the region. A slower moving front will sweep across the Four Corners on Tuesday with additional snow accumulations in the forecast.

As the cold front in the Southwest swings into the Plains, snowfall will come to an end from Utah to New Mexico as high pressure builds into the Four Corners. Snow will gradually diminish in the Northwest as well.
