Large Snowstorm Headed to the West Right This Second

It might be too little too late for many ski areas, but a large storm is currently making its way across the Western United States at the moment. Skiers can expect heavy snow in the Sierra late Tuesday morning and into the afternoon before tapering to light snow by Wednesday morning. The good news for the Tahoe ski areas that are still open: this storm is cold, so while lower evaluations at the lake will see 3-6 inches, the upper mountains can expect 7-14 inches. The snow will move into Utah on Wednesday with moderate snow totals of 6-9 inches, and Colorado will see the leftovers on Thursday morning with maybe 3-6 inches of snow. Meanwhile, the snow-starved Pacific Northwest could get hammered this weekend and early next week, with reports of 1-3 feet of snow possible. Considering how bad March was for the western snowpack (and the drought!), we'll take what we can get.
