A long look into the future ~ OpenSnow

The 51-version average of the European model’s snowfall forecast nicely displays the issue with plenty of snow for the west, but the deepest accumulations could stay closer to the west coast with less snow for us in the Rockies as storms weaken, split, or track just north or south of Colorado when they move inland.

The forecast outlook for the 30 days between December 30 and January 28 continues to show an active/stormy pattern across the west. In fact, three of the extended-range models show nearly the same weather pattern in their 30-day forecasts which is remarkable agreement for a one-month outlook.

If we can stay in this active pattern for the next 30 days, at some point luck will be on our side and we’ll see a few significant storms along with the more consistent weak or moderate storms that we’ve been seeing lately.
