The west will continue to see accumulating snow through the weekend and into early next week, as waves of energy sweep through the region. Seen below are two areas of active weather that are forecast at 6 PM Thursday evening. Heavy snow will continue to fly through the inter-mountain west as a strong cold front likely drops up to 12" for the Colorado Rockies. As this system ejects east, round number two moves into the Pacific Northwest.
Here are some expected snowfall totals through Saturday afternoon. The Sierra's will be the big winner with over 3'! Close behind will be both the Colorado Rockies' and the Wasatch Range in Utah with upwards of 2 feet of powder. Ski resorts will be loving these conditions over the next few days!
