Skip to comments.Winter Storm Atlas Forecast: Snow to Impact MT, ID, CO, WY, SD, Western NE
Posted on 10/02/2013 1:16:16 PM PDT by Olog-hai
The calendar may have just turned to October; however, Winter Storm Atlas is poised to bring heavy snow to the northern Rockies, some snow even at lower elevations, and perhaps the seasons first snow to parts of the Northern Plains.
(T)he heaviest snow accumulations from Winter Storm Atlas are expected to be over the highest elevations of southern Montana, Wyoming and far northern Colorado. More than a foot of total snow is likely over the Tetons, Bighorns and Beartooth Ranges of Wyoming and far southwest Montana, as well as the Black Hills of South Dakota and mountains of far northern Colorado.
With that said, significant accumulations, possibly more than six inches, are also expected over some lower-elevation cities including Casper, Cheyenne and Laramie, Wyo.

I thank God that He planted me in Texas.
There was a snow storm Oct 2-3rd last year in the Dakotas as well . . .
How many inches of global warming are we going to get this time?
I noticed that NBC’s Climate Change Channel rolled out their roster of this year’s winter storm names.
The better to convince the populace that “climate change” really is impacting them....
Naming winter storms is ridiculous. I hope other organizations don’t start using them.
Sadly, most youts believe it.
Securing control of a “mainstream” channel and using it for propaganda is a brilliant stroke.
They have news segments from MSNBC every half hour also.
So the Leftists at Weather Channel aren’t affected by the shutdown?
Snow in the Rocky Mountains and the Northern Plains?
Stop the Presses!!!
The only thing abnormal about snow in the Black Hills in Oct. is that it now has a name.
Just checked the snow depth graphics and we have only had significant snow on this day of the year in one previous year since 2003. That was 2007.
Based on all the rain we’ve had in Northern CO, we might be in for a really snowy winter here.
I rather like the idea.
Winter Storm Brrrr
Winter Storm Achoo
Winter Storm Shiver
Winter Storm Slippery
Winter Storm Shovel
Winter Storm Snowbank
Winter Storm GOTO MIAMI
One of the dumber things I’ve done in my life is attempt to cross a mountain when it was raining at the foot of the mountain. Live and learn.
Don't forget my kids' favorite. Winter Storm Snowday!
We had s snow storm dump 4-6” of snow on eastern South Dakota last April and today there are severe thunderstorms in the area with snow forecast for the weekend. Must be global cooling.
Hope these aren’t the same dudes/dudettes that forecast hurricane season.
Cute. Storm Snowday could be extended to Snowday Season if the kids are lucky.
