SnoCountry SnoCast: Thankful For A Huge Western Snowfall

Thanksgiving weekend will be especially tasty in the western United States and Canada with multiple helpings of snow storms.

 

Western U.S. & Canada

We’ll be going back for seconds, even thirds of fresh snowfall in the West. An ongoing storm will bring heavy snow from the Sierra Nevada to Utah and the Canadian Rockies Thursday morning. Another wave of snow will move across the same area Friday, while powder moves into Wyoming and Colorado.

Snowfall through Friday (NWS)

By Saturday, it’ll still be flaking across the U.S. Rockies, calming down by Sunday. In all, everyone should get 4-8” out of this. Winners will be in California with up to 30”, Idaho up to 15” and Wyoming up to 12”.

This week we love Alpine Meadows, Squaw Valley, Whistler, Schweitzer and Mission Ridge for big totals! After a break Sunday, watch Mon.-Wed. (26th-28th) for another widespread snowfall.

Eastern U.S. & Canada

No need to stock your fridge with leftovers here, just keep it out on the porch! Cold temperatures will stick around Thanksgiving Day and Friday across the East.

We’ll warm up by Saturday, but too much to cause a wintry mix with a small weather system Saturday night. Sunday will be clearer.

Another storm will trek through Monday, bringing another light-moderate wintry mix. Tuesday and Wednesday will become colder and breezier with scattered snow showers. The weather should be decent for Killington’s World Cup this weekend! We also like Vermont’s Mount Snow and Windham / Hunter Mountains in New York.
