Good morning! We've made it to October 1st, and my schedule gets sooooo busy, as ski resorts come online, and I've got my grandson to keep me company. It may seem like he's doing the forecasts, but I'm going to still try to maintain the blogs, just a little more difficult! A cold front has moved east of the area, and we have one more band of clouds and showers to move across the area this afternoon. You can see on the satellite image below that this band is over southern Idaho and while I don't expect any heavy precipitation, we should see some showers and lower snow levels. Once this band exits off to the east, we'll see a drier air mass through the weekend and most of next week! So, a nice stretch of fall weather with temperatures above normal this weekend and next week. The next couple of mornings will be pretty frosty though!
Good morning! We'll see more rain showers and a couple of thunderstorms today and tonight, but we'll see a break in the pattern with a drier air mass pushing into the area tomorrow and this will be with us through the weekend. A weak cold front will move across the area later today and tonight bringing the rain (and even some upper elevation snow), then the coolest day of the week will be tomorrow. The drier air mass will lead to some cold mornings, and we're likely to be into the 20s on Thursday and Friday morning across the Snyderville Basin. It'll begin to warm up with our high temperatures over the weekend in the mid to upper 60s by Sunday.
Good morning! The remains of the low pressure continues to move across the area and we'll see more showers scattered over the area for the next couple of days. Any breaks in the cloud cover will fill in fairly quickly with showers and thunderstorms developing. In addition, there's a cold front moving into the Pacific Northwest today and this will help keep the showers and thunderstorms over us through Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The good news is we'll dry out and the weather is looking nice at the end of the week and through the weekend. It's a fairly cool week, and once we clear out, a couple of the mornings like Thursday and Friday morning are likely to drop to near freezing or slightly below.
Goooood Morning! Now, that was a very wet 24 hour period and I don't have any good, reliable data for rainfall amounts in the Snyderville Basin. I do know that a gauge up at 9,000 feet in Thaynes Canyon area had 2.00 inches of rain, and the Park City Golf Course had 1.28 inches! The upper level low pressure is located near Ely, Nevada and will be moving eastward today and tonight. We'll see more showers and a couple of thunderstorms today and there's a chance of showers through Tuesday, but amounts won't be as heavy as what we've seen in the last 24 hours. We should see some breaks as well, and definitely drier at the end of the week and next weekend!
Good morning! Well the moisture increased over Utah in a big way yesterday and last night, and the main driver is an area of low pressure over central California. This low pressure will continue to move slowly eastward through the weekend, and we'll continue to see numerous showers and some thunderstorms with a fairly well organized band of heavy rain between 3 PM and around 9 PM. Not to say that it'll rain heavy each hour, but this is the time frame with the highest percentage chance of seeing this band move across the area. We'll see more breaks tomorrow, but still a number of showers and thunderstorms in the area. All in all, a fairly wet weekend, and definitely cooler! The weather at the end of the week and next weekend is looking nice with temperatures near normal and normal is 31 low and 64 max next Saturday.
Good morning! One more warm day, so get out and enjoy! We could see a couple of thunderstorms really late this afternoon and overnight, but these should be pretty scattered. The area of low pressure that will be impacting us will be moving slowly eastward, so cooler with rain and thunderstorms through the weekend. Rainfall totals are expected to be between 1 and 2 inches, and I would lean toward the 1.50 to 2" range! So, definitely a significant event for the area. Snowfall levels probably won't get below 9,000 feet and likely closer to 10,000 feet. I believe that most of the rain will fall between 3 PM Saturday and around midnight. Showers will continue into Sunday, but a little more scattered. The cooler than normal temperatures will continue for much of next week with another cold front later Tuesday and Wednesday. I even say somebody post the chance of a "winter" like storm at the end of next week, but it was basically one model run that they wanted to hype. Totally wrong, and that model has since backed off and has more high pressure into the area. Now, the pattern will amplify again around the 8th or 9th and that needs to be watched, but we have plenty of time to keep an eye on how things develop.
Good morning! Another sunny day with temperatures well above normal! We hit 81 yesterday across much of the Snyderville Basin and should make it to that again today, and even a couple of degrees warmer. It'll be warm again tomorrow, but upper 70s to near 80. There are changes coming though, and the low pressure you see on the satellite image that's just off the West Coast, will move into the interior of the West this weekend. At the same time, this system will draw moisture rapidly northward increasing the chance of some heavy rain. Showers and thunderstorms will develop later tomorrow and tomorrow night, but should be scattered and even into Saturday morning, they'll be around, but scattered. As we get to Saturday afternoon and night, we should see a period of rain and thunderstorms with some locally heavy rain. I'll have a better idea on timing tomorrow when I update the blog, but definitely a much cooler and wetter period. The normal high temperature for the area now is around 69 degrees and by Sunday and Monday, we'll probably be hanging around the upper 50s to near 60! Enjoy the warmth, you know it's going to change!
Good morning and welcome to the first full day of fall! We reached the equinox yesterday, but this is the first full day of fall! The next couple of days will actually still feel a more like summer, as we warm significantly through Thursday with our max temperatures reaching into the low 80s Thursday afternoon. However, and yes there is a however, that low pressure you see off the West Coast will be paying a visit this weekend bringing an increase in showers and thunderstorms, any yes, much cooler temperatures. I believe the cooler than normal temperatures will continue through the first half of next week. So, enjoy the next couple of days of warmth and dry weather!!
Good morning! It's nice to be back home! We had some rain yesterday and overnight, but the couple of showers lingering this morning will end, and a drier air mass will be moving into the area this afternoon and should be with us through the end of the week. Possibly by later Friday we could see a couple of showers or a thunderstorm return, and that's due to a fairly strong area of low pressure and associated cold front moving into the West. It's looking like this system will impact next weekend with cool, wet weather and I'll keep you posted. Until then, we'll be warming well above normal by Wednesday and Thursday with readings right around 80, possibly low 80s on Thursday.
Good morning! Sorry for not being able to get one these blogs done over the last couple of days. I took a trip to Kansas City for a buddy's wedding and I've been super busy. As you can tell from the satellite picture, and maybe from looking outside, we'll see a number of showers and thunderstorms today and tonight, and I expect some of the activity to last into tomorrow morning, but we'll dry out during the day tomorrow and most of the coming week will be dry and warm. The reason for it being dry and warm will be due to the approach of a fairly strong low pressure and associated cold front. It'll weaken a little as it moves inland, but should bring an increase in showers and thunderstorms by Friday and into next weekend. For now, enjoy the showers and thunderstorms today, and I'll be flying back into the area this afternoon.
