With temperatures rising in the US, Canada and elsewhere, the snowpack has been shrinking.
The snowpack in the Northern Hemisphere is expected to fall a lot by the end of the month, which will put more pressure on rivers and streams, making it more difficult for the country’s glaciers to absorb their meltwater.
The snowfall is expected in much of the country, with much of western and central Canada expected to have the heaviest snowfall and most extreme weather.
In many places, the ground is frozen, and the ground could start to collapse, especially if the winter storm patterns and the melting of the polar ice cap continue.
The National Weather Service says that the snowfall will drop in some places from 15 to 20 inches (38 to 48 centimeters) in the north, from the Great Lakes region to the Rockies, and from the Canadian border to the Atlantic.
The coldest winter storm conditions are expected to hit the Rockies in early March.
Ahead of this weekend’s snowfall, the National Weather Services predicted the highest temperatures in the country to be from the high 30s to the low 40s.
A forecast for the next few days is not expected to be out until Tuesday.
The National Weather Center said temperatures will stay below freezing and snow will not be falling.
