A blast of unseasonably cold air, gusty thunderstorms and mountain snow will spread across the West this weekend into next week.
Weather Across the West this weekend
A strong push of cool air will erase the buildup of warmth in the coastal Northwest prior to the end of this week. However, much colder air will soon follow and expand across more territory in the West.
"The pattern coming up for this weekend into early next week in the West is like a forgotten piece of March or early April," according to AccuWeather Long-Range Meteorologist Paul Paselok.
The chill and wintry weather will only be negated by the time of the year and the effects of the June sun.
"People heading to the mountains for rafting, hiking or camping trips should be prepared for wintry conditions in the high country and out of season chill at lower elevations," according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity. ■
