This week in weather | Oct. 14 – Oct. 20, 2013

The snow has been falling, the temps have been dropping, and the so far this season is off to a solid start! Throughout these first few weeks of October, the snow gods have been gracing the Western US with some solid snowfall, to the point that Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort, here in Colorado, was able to fire up it’s chairlifts and open it’s runs for the season.

Across the US

For this week, Oct. 14-20th, our go-to-guy Joel Gratz over at Opensnow.com is predicting that the colder weather will be making moves to the East. For the week of October 14th- October 20th, it appears that the Eastern 2/3rds of the good old US of A will be seeing some serious precipitation, with potential for snowfall in Northern New York and Vermont for peaks over 5,000 ft.

Up in the Northwest corner of the country, stormy weather is expected to sweep in from the coast, bringing with it consistently low temperatures. Keeping in tune with the past few weeks of weather, Colorado, Montana, and Wyoming are expected to see more snowfall throughout the beginning of this week, with the possibility of another dose come Thursday.

Canada

The Alberta, Manitoba, and Saskatchewan zones are looking at a super cold week, capped off by a set of severe storms that are predicted to hit around the 16th. Those stationed in British Columbia are looking at a cold week as well, with storms blowing in from the coast towards the end of the week. It’s clear that chilly weather is expected across the board, though the East is still looking at more of a wet week than a white one. Till full-blown winter hits, however, at least one resort can feed the froth — big ups to Arapahoe Basin for jump starting what’s looking to be a supremely snowy season!

Stay tuned, folks — we’re keeping our eyes on the forecast, and the updates will be rolling in all season long!
