Here's another long-range forecast issued by The Weather Alternative at the end of September that's shaping up:

Oct 8-10:
A storm system moves in over the West Coast States and pushes toward the Rockies.

The Weather Channel reports today that:

Two disturbances will bring wet weather to a large part of the West on Monday. An upper low over western Arizona will pump moisture into the Four Corners region and across the Rocky Mountains.
As a result, look for showers and thunderstorms across Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado.
Flood watches are in effect for portions of Utah and Colorado as some of the rain could be locally heavy.

Farther north, another disturbance will trigger snow across the Northern Rockies. Snow advisories and winter storm warnings are in effect for parts of Montana and Wyoming, and some mountain locations could see a foot of snow.
