Winter Weather Takes a Bite Out of the Northwest

5 Nov 2017, 3:07 pm

The start of November welcomes in much cooler and snowier conditions for the Pacific Northwest.  After already seeing their fair share of winter weather, the snow machine is not quite finished.

Snow totals ranging anywhere from a trace to a foot or more of snow is possible stretching from Washington State to the Great Lakes and as far south as Colorado. Winter Storm Advisories and Warnings continue to develop for a good portion of the western U.S. with greater impacts in the higher elevations. Although travel will be difficult in some areas through Tuesday, ski resorts are rejoicing with this early November snowfall.

Not only will if look like winter, but brutally cold temperatures will dive south through the beginning part of the workweek.

As a cold front pushes through the High Plains and Central Plains, high pressure will follow. This system will bring colder temperatures, but will squash any further snow development into the Pacific Northwest. However, with clockwise winds, an upslope event is expected to occur along the Colorado Front Range and parts of southern Wyoming along the Cheyenne Ridge. Snow accumulations are expected to be on the lighter side due to the dry and cold nature of this system.

 

Colder temperatures will start to slide farther to the south come Monday into Tuesday with daytime highs dropping. This will bring a slight relief from warm temperatures for those in the south. Dallas will get the chance to experience more fall-like temperatures this week.
