Good morning everyone! An unseasonably cool low pressure, over the Pacific Northwest, will strengthen a cold front that is just northwest of Utah this morning. I love weather like this, and we need the water too!!! The chance of showers and thunderstorms will increase this afternoon and evening, and more like mid afternoon on through tomorrow morning. The air mass will be very unstable and cooling through tomorrow morning. The moist air mass that's in place will provide the best environment for this cold front to generate some generous precipitation amounts. The good news is that Sunday is looking really nice, and while chilly in the morning, it'll warm up and be sunny through the afternoon. One more system will move across the area later Monday and into Tuesday bringing another chance of showers and thunderstorms, then a nice break from Wednesday through Friday of next week!
Good morning! Awesome rainfall amounts in the last 24 hours, and still a chance of a couple of showers this morning (prior to 10) and more showers and thunderstorms possible later this afternoon and evening. In fact, there's a chance of showers and thunderstorms each day through Saturday with a couple of periods where I believe the coverage will be enough to put the chance of precipitation into the likely category from later Friday into Saturday. We'll dry out and have good weather Sunday and Monday!
Good morning, and as expected the moisture has moved back into the area and there's a fairly large area of rain over us and down into Salt Lake City. The moisture will continue to flow into the area through the day, and our high temperatures will struggle to around 70. I love this weather, and if you've lived here for a while, then you know, there are years where it's really dry and hot. The moisture layer gradually decreases over the next couple of days, but there's a chance of showers and thunderstorms through Friday. The weekend is looking good with any thunderstorm activity being isolated, and max temperatures will be between 75 and 80.
Good morning! I took the weekend off from doing the blog and spent some awesome time with the family, as the weather was outstanding! I did get a bike ride in on Saturday and that was perfect! As you can see from the satellite image below, there are some clouds across northern Utah, and a couple of light showers. In fact, I would think most of the raindrops this morning are evaporating before hitting the ground, and this is called virga! Now, the moisture layer will increase through the afternoon and into tomorrow, so the chance of measurable rain will be on the increase, and this will also hold out temperatures down. In fact, we'll certainly stay in the 70s tomorrow and could be low 70s. While I believe the peak in the thunderstorm activity will be tomorrow, there's a chance just about each day through the end of the week. Have an awesome Monday!
Good morning! It's an awesome morning out there weather-wise with blue skies and cool early morning readings. The air mass has dried out and is more stable over northern Utah this morning and we should have an awesome weather pattern through the weekend and into early next week. Temperatures will be near normal with the max temperatures in the low 80s!!
Good morning, and hope you have an awesome hump day!
There were some decent thunderstorms around late yesterday with the strongest going up through the Salt Lake Valley and northward. We'll see more thunderstorms today, and again tomorrow, but we should see some dry and the air mass becoming more stable from Friday through the weekend. The amount of moisture in the atmosphere will support some heavy rain with the thunderstorms! So, get things done this morning and into early afternoon, then we should see the thunderstorms increase!
Good morning! The flow of moisture is shifting into the area, so should be a fairly active day with showers and thunderstorms! In fact, we should see considerable shower and thunderstorm activity through Thursday, but dry out on Friday and this trend will continue through the weekend! The thunderstorms will produce some gusty winds and brief heavy rain, so this will continue the trend of a fairly active monsoon season!
Good morning! The air mass is still fairly moist and unstable this morning, and there will be a scattering of thunderstorms this afternoon. I'm not going to change any of my plans, but we should see a couple in the area. A little drier and a little more stable air mass tomorrow and Monday, but I can't completely rule out an isolated thunderstorm. We'll definitely see an increase in the moisture and thunderstorms Tuesday through the end of next week. All in all, not too boring of a pattern for a weatherman!!! Have a great Saturday!
Good morning! I was a little disappointed in the lack of thunderstorms yesterday with most just to the east of us. The air mass is still a little unstable and enough moisture for a couple of thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening today and again tomorrow. We should be able to get done most anything we want outside this weekend. Our temperatures will be warming back into the mid 80s by Sunday afternoon. The moisture and the threat of thunderstorms will return later Monday through the middle of next week, so we have another period to get some much needed moisture!
Good morning!! Another potentially active weather day! A slow moving upper level low pressure will be shifting across the area will bring an increase in the upwards forcing of the air mass, along with a somewhat moist and unstable air mass already over the area, will lead to an increase in showers and thunderstorms. I even kept a chance in the afternoon tomorrow, but not quite as unstable, so not quite as many showers and thunderstorms. While we never completely get rid of the chance of thunderstorms through the weekend, they should be more isolated and I sure wouldn't change any plans. The moisture will return later Monday and Tuesday for another increase in showers and thunderstorms. All in all, I'm loving this pattern with all of these thunderstorm days!
