Western Snow from the Canadian Border to the Mexican Border
Winter weather alerts are widespread in the West to start this week, stretching from the Canadian border along the Rocky Mountain Front in Montana to the Mexican Border west of San Diego. Most additional snowfall accumulations are expected to be in the 2″ to 6″ range, with some isolated areas seeing up to 8″. Strong winds in Montana will create blowing and drifting snow and white out conditions tonight into Tuesday.
A cold front is stretched out from the High Plains to the Southwest. As a low pressure center moves from California today to the Four Corners Tuesday, snowfall will increase from the Sierra Nevada Mountains to the south and east. As another low approaches the Pacific Northwest, snow will begin to accumulate from the Cascades to near Glacier National Park. 50 to 60 mph wind gusts along the Rocky Mountain Front in Montana may produce blizzard conditions.
