More Winter Weather in the West and High Plains

24 Apr 2017, 10:44 am

Winter seems far from over in portions of the West and High Plains as snow was falling this weekend and is expected to continue to start the work week. More than a foot is likely to accumulate in the highest elevations across the West.

In the Northwest, up to a foot is possible in the Cascades, especially in Oregon. Winter Weather Advisories continue through this evening.

A Winter Storm Watch has been issued in parts of Wyoming where a strong breeze will blow around 3″ to 6″ of new snow. A foot of fresh powder is possible in the Tetons. A mix of ice and snow has produced slippery travel conditions in North Dakota, where a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect.

The snowpack in the Rockies will get a little deeper the next few days. Up to 6″ of snow is possible in many of the popular ski resorts, which will keep late season skiers happy. Lesser amounts of snow will fall in the Wasatch and Sierra Nevada.
