SnoCountry SnoCast: Be Mine? Mother Nature Is Our Valentine

Mammoth-Mountain-Twitter Mammoth continues to add feet of snow. (Mammoth/Twitter)

We LOVE this forecast! The SnoCast 2019 Valentine’s Day edition features what we love this week. Give it a read to find out!


Western U.S. & Canada

What’s NOT to love?! Incredible snowfalls have hit the West where they’ll continue into Presidents’ Day Weekend. First, California will get up to another 6 to 7 FEET between Tuesday and Friday (12th-15th) but be careful; high wind and very tough travel will make it difficult to get to the mountain. Give crews a moment to clear the way (or get there and stay)!

The Northwest has been awesome and more cold/snowy weather will prevail Thursday and Friday. Waves of energy keep snowy weather across most of the West. The Rockies will get heaviest snowfalls Friday and Saturday. Eventually, it will dry and clear Sunday-Tuesday. Love goes to Snoqualmie, Mammoth, Mount Hood and Sun Valley.

Eastern U.S. & Canada

Maine's Sugarloaf poised for a good holiday weekend. (Sugarloaf/Twitter)

This week we love the recent storm Tuesday-Wednesday (12th-13th) that dropped the highest amounts near the Canadian border. Next, a clipper will bring 3-6” of snow to the Great Lakes Thursday, then the Northeast Friday.

Two separate systems may bring snow to the mid-Atlantic this Presidents’ Day Weekend. First, 2-4” snow is possible in West Virginia and Virginia Saturday. Second, 2-5” snow is possible for WV/VA and PA Sunday.

The first of two potential weekend storms in the mid-Atlantic Saturday. (Pivotal Weather)

Monday and Tuesday turn colder and sunnier. Heavier snow (possibly a wintry mix) moves in Tuesday night to Wednesday (19th-20th). Love goes to Spirit Mountain, Nordic Mountain, Whiteface and Jay Peak.

Until next week! Thanks to Northern Vermont University – Lyndon meteorology students James Mundy and Francis Tarasiewicz for contributions to this article.
