Heavy Snow to Totally Dry: 11.8 Snow B4U Go
7th November 2018 | Meteorologist Chris Tomer
News Regions: Banff, Maine, Utah, Vermont, Wyoming, Montana, New Mexico, Idaho, British Columbia, Colorado, New Hampshire, California, Canada, Rocky Mountains, Northeast
Resorts in this article: Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, Whitefish Mountain Resort, Big Sky Resort, Breckenridge, Bridger Bowl, Grand Targhee Resort, Jackson Hole, Jay Peak, Keystone, Killington Resort, Loveland, Mount Snow, Okemo Mountain Resort, Schweitzer, Steamboat, Sun Valley, Sunday River, Taos Ski Valley, Whistler Blackcomb, Wildcat Mountain, Winter Park Resort, Wolf Creek Ski Area
Some recent, heavy snow in Colorado brought double digit three-day totals to many ski resorts, even prompting a few early openings for the 18/19 ski season. In terms of the long-range forecast, we're not officially in El Niño yet but very close. The official forecasts continue to show a 70-75 percent chance by the start of winter.

The four significant sea surface temperature zones in the South Pacific are currently all positive/warmer than normal. However, my personal concern is that we're moving into a specific, rare type of El Niño called Modoki, which could mean important shifts in where the heaviest snow sets up this winter. It's not set in stone, but momentum is building from my point of view.

Northeast Weather
A large storm system is possible between Friday night and Saturday. The rain/snow line remains critical. Heavy snow is possible at the interior ski areas like Killington, Mount Snow, Wildcat, Sunday River, Okemo and Jay Peak with 6 inches or more that may accumulate, making for great skiing on Saturday and Sunday. Colder temps on Sunday and Monday keep the snow in place.

See Northeast Projected Opening Dates

Colorado, Utah Weather
The storm track divides Utah and Colorado sharply over the next five days with 90 percent of the snow chances staying in Colorado, missing Utah. Only light accumulation in the Wasatch Front. The best chances for light to moderate accumulation are Thursday, Sunday and Monday. Loveland, Steamboat, Arapahoe Basin, Winter Park, Keystone, Breckenridge and Wolf Creek are in the best position.

See Colorado Projected Opening Dates

Wyoming, Montana, Idaho Weather
A quick-hitting light to moderate snow ends on Thursday morning then a second light to moderate snow chance hits Friday through Saturday. A third light snow could race in Sunday night into Monday. Big Sky, Bridger Bowl, Whitefish, Schweitzer, Sun Valley, Jackson Hole and Grand Targhee are all in good position over the next five days.

New Mexico Weather :shock:
Moderate to heavy snow is possible Sunday afternoon into Monday. Taos is in good position.

See New Mexico Projected Opening Dates

Pacific Northwest Weather
The best chance of light to moderate snow is on Friday. Accumulation is most likely at Whistler/Blackcomb and at Banff ski areas.

California Weather
A totally dry stretch. The storm track remains unfavorable potentially for another 10 days.

Tomer's Take for the Best Skiing This Weekend
Ski the Pacific Northwest on Friday, the Northeast on Saturday, and Montana or Wyoming on Sunday. Bonus mention for Colorado on Thursday and Monday.

#MeteoredMX It is intense winter time since this weekend, strengthening next week. This is due to the "East Pacific Oscillation". Our meteorologist José Martín Cortés (@InfoMeteoro) explains:
Anteriormente, se habló de las oscilaciones del Atlántico Norte y Ártica, las cuales juegan un rol muy importante en los movimientos de masas de aire polar, así como sus trayectorias hacia latitudes menores como Estados Unidos y México durante el semestre relativo al invierno, es decir, octubre a marzo.

Previously, the North Atlantic and Arctic oscillations were discussed, which play a very important role in polar air mass movements, as well as their trajectories towards lower latitudes such as the United States and Mexico during the winter semester, that is, , October to March.

On this occasion another oscillation will be described, which significantly influences the entry of Arctic air and even, from Siberia, on the other side of the world, known as the Eastern Pacific Oscillation (EPO).

This pattern consists in the pressure difference between the Northeast Pacific, near Alaska, and the subtropical region of the Eastern Pacific in the vicinity with Hawaii, there being two phases.

Positive: Warm air flows in the direction of the west coast and over much of the United States. This configuration traps the polar cold far to the north, while over the central-western United States and southern Canada, temperatures dominate with values above normal.

Negative: When a warm anticyclone forms over the northeast Pacific and enters as a dorsal towards Alaska, it favors a very cold pattern over North America, causing a polar airflow that can cross from Siberia towards Canada, the United States and eventually, reach Mexico.

Specifically, what effects can it cause in Mexico?

Just the negative phase is what brings winter weather conditions to our country, and according to the forecast this could happen next week with an invasion of Arctic-Siberian air generating a drastic thermal decline in the country and violent "North" over the Gulf of Mexico.

In general, this oscillation can lower temperatures of 10-30 ° C below the climate, generating a cold to very cold environment, leading to the formation of frost. Commonly, the mass of air has a small amount of water vapor, so frost can be black (absence of moisture burns plants due to low temperatures) and thermal descent more drastically, since this type of air has the ability to cool down quickly

On the other hand, it is accompanied by a large rise or increase in atmospheric pressure that, when reaching the Gulf of Mexico, generates violent "North" events, whose intensities can easily exceed 100 km / h. If the cold mass is combined with moisture, it would result in extensive areas of snowfall as well as the formation of ice by fog (rime) and the presence of freezing or icy rain which is the precipitation of super-cooled liquid water that, when touched by a surface , it freezes quickly.

When the Arctic, North Atlantic, and Eastern Pacific oscillations enter the negative phase at the same time, the aforementioned effects may become even more severe and widespread over North America, including Mexico. In the next few days, we will be monitoring this possible "winter weather" favored by the negative phase of the "EPO" that would affect our national territory between Monday 12 and Thursday 15 November.

Stay tuned for updates on Meteored and take preventive measures.

In an image broadcast by the National Center for Disaster Prevention (Cenapred) shows the Popocatepetl volcano at 06:55 a picture in which the colossus is covered in snow

However, in the most recent intense cloudy shots over the area prevent visibility towards the Popocatépetl.

Also, in the area of Nevado de Toluca, snow and sleet were recorded, as well as areas with fog and rain.

The Secretariat of Public Security of the State of Mexico asked the population to take extreme precautions when driving, especially in the area of the Nevado de Toluca, where snow falls this morning, as well as avoid climbing this volcano to prevent mishaps and cases of hypothermia.

The authorities urged the population to respect the speed limits and the traffic regulations, as well as driving with caution, since this morning they have increased the crashes, run over and road mishaps in areas such as Lomas Verdes, in Naucalpan; on the Mexico-Puebla highway, at kilometer 27, in Valle de Chalco, and in the Mexiquense Exterior Circuit, in the municipality of Ecatepec, which complicates vehicular traffic.

On his Twitter account @SS_Edomex, the Secretary of Public Security of the State of Mexico wrote: "#ExtremaPrecauciones when driving through the #NevadoDeToluca, #PoliticalStates guard the area as the slush continues, #PorTuSeguridad respects the speed limits and in case #Emergency approach the elements #CuidamosDeTi.

In another twee reported: "# C5 informs: According to the @conagua_clima, # Edomex is forecast cloudy sky, showers and snow or sleet probability in mountainous areas; with a maximum temperature of 15 to 17 degrees and minimum of 1 to 3 degrees Celsius Use 9-1-1, against any #Emergency.

He also broadcast several road accidents that were captured by the video surveillance cameras, in which he urges the population to prevent mishaps:
"#ExtremePrecauciones, the @SS_Edomex, through # C5 reports: Derived from the #Lluvias and through the cameras of videovigilancia, we see an #AccidenteVial in Lomas Verdes, first section, #Naucalpan. Public Security Unit, supports in the area, # Manages with Precaution.

Information released by the National Water Commission (Conagua) said that the weather is forecast for most of the territory of the State of Mexico cloudy with showers and rains in all municipalities, as well as snow and sleet fall in the high and mountainous areas , with maximum temperatures of 15 to 17 degrees, and minimum of 1 to 3 degrees Celsius for this day.
