7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - 24 April to 02 May, 2015 - Pacific Northwest/ Northern California/ UTAH/ COLORADO/ northern New Mexico: April continues much more busy (frequent snow) with more storms across the western US than we saw in March, including for the Pacific Northwest and northern Rocky Mountains. For Utah-Colorado-northern New Mexico, we expect a chance for snow Thursday and Friday (23-24th) and again Saturday and Sunday (25th-26th) as cold low pressure moves in out of the northwest US, delivering potentially heavy snow. After this, high pressure builds in (less wind, milder, mostly sunny) for 2-3 days, then possibly stronger low pressure and significant snow for the last days of April/ 1st of May. In May we see more stable conditions and more dominant high pressure ridging aloft, with warming and mostly sunny skies and the usual afternoon thunderstorm activity. Tahoe-Mammoth, the northern/ central Sierra Nevada Mountains and the Cascades of WA/ OR have a shot at snow between next weekend and that Monday (24th-27th), with significant snow possible, though the storm targets the northwest US/ northern Rocky Mountains.
