Idaho forecast to see 4-6″ this week.

A series of weather disturbances will keep weather active through much of the week. The first disturbance will trigger some showers and isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. A second system tomorrow will drop snow levels to the Central Mountains and bring 4 to 6 inches of snow to the peaks. Temperatures across the area will drop into the mid-30s across the Snake Plain Thursday and Friday nights—cold enough that we may see pockets of frost develop.” – NOAA, Pocatello, Idaho


Montana is expecting mountain snow this week.
Montana is expecting mountain snow above 6,500-feet this week.

“Any outdoor plans this week? A series of weather systems are expected to track into north-central Idaho and western Montana beginning Monday afternoon and continuing off and on through the rest of the week. This will bring snow showers to higher elevations and rain showers to the lower elevations. Those planning outdoor activities should prepare for wet, raw, and cold conditions.” – NOAA, Missula, Montana


Snow for Utah this week.
Snow for Utah this week.

A lot of changes in store for the weather across Utah over the next several days…from near record breaking temperatures Sunday to…snow on the peaks by Wednesday.

Expect showery conditions Monday and Tuesday across much of Utah. A period of rain will be possible across mainly northern Utah, with showers continuing across southern Utah Wednesday.

And…snow levels will fall to near 9000 feet Wednesday, which will bring the first snow of the fall to some of the peaks of the Wasatch.” – NOAA, Salt Lake City, Utah


Snow for California this week.
Snow for California this week.

A weather system currently situated over Alaska is forecast to move toward Northern California, potentially spreading precipitation south to around the Interstate-80 corridor. Rain amounts of up to 0.33″ will be possible, mainly along the far Northern Sacramento Valley. Snow levels may also drop down to around 7000 ft, meaning possible snow for Lassen Park and perhaps a dusting near Donner Pass. We currently believe this will bring rain to the Valley Fire, but not the Butte Fire.” – NOAA, Sacramento, California
