Good morning! We've had a couple of awesome weather days, and the air mass has definitely warmed up. There's a little more cloudiness over the Great Basin this morning, and this is due to a weak upper level weather system moving in from California. There's enough moisture and instability for a couple of thunderstorms to develop this afternoon, and while not widespread and I don't think it would last very long, there could be a thunderstorm or two in the area . I wouldn't really change any plans, as I don't think there would be much rain with these storms. Now, at the end of the week, we'll see an area of low pressure move into the West, and moisture from an ex-hurricane will spread into the area resulting in rain and thunderstorms by Thursday and into Friday. Have an awesome Sunday!
Good morning! A beautiful morning over the area, and we should have sunny days and clear at night through the weekend!! Now, the mornings will be a little chilly, and we were 35 or 36 throughout the Snyderville Basin this morning and should be a little cooler tomorrow morning, but likely in the 30s for morning low temperatures through the weekend. It'll take until the weekend for our max temperatures to get back into the 70s. Just get out and enjoy these days, and with the leaves changing, there are some awesome hikes or mountain bike trails to visit!
Good morning! Let me first start by saying how happy I am that PCMR will be open again this season. I know a number of people from the top down, and I enjoy an incredible working, and personal relationship with them. I continue to pray that a long term solution will be worked out for them, and we can continue to build this resort and area, and keep it a world class destination. Now, the air mass is drier and will be dry through the weekend. It will be cool over the next couple of days and would not be surprised to see temperatures in the low to mid 30s in the mornings from tomorrow through Saturday. We will see a warmer air mass over the weekend with the max temperatures warming back to 70 to 75 degrees by Sunday.
Good morning! A fairly significant increase in the moisture in the last 24 hours and there are some showers and thunderstorms around this morning, but we should see a little break through the remainder of the morning and early afternoon with a more significant increase in showers and thunderstorms later this afternoon, tonight and into tomorrow. We should be able to make the mid 70s for a high temperature today with some sunshine, but cooler over the next couple of days with the max temperature in the 60s. As we dry out the air mass Wednesday through Saturday, our morning low temperatures are likely to dip into the 30s again.
Good morning! There's a band of thunderstorms coming across the Salt Lake Valley as of 8:05 AM and will move across us in the next hour or so. We could see a thunderstorm or two this afternoon, but honestly, once this organized band of storms moves across the area, we should have a nice break later this morning and much of the afternoon. Any storms that develop tomorrow will be isolated, then still a potentially stronger surge of moisture on Monday and Tuesday! Have a fun Saturday!
Good morning! A weak low pressure over California has brought an increase in thunderstorms across northern Utah overnight, and we'll see more through this afternoon and again tomorrow. These will be scattered, but for sure will be around us, but we should be able to get some things done outside. A stronger surge of moisture is expected by Monday and Tuesday, aided by ex-hurricane Norbert. So, we'll definitely have to keep an eye on this situation over the next couple of days.
Good morning! After a couple of awesome days, the forecast will get more complex from this point through early next week. A weak front has moved across the area, and we should be dry and cooler today. We'll see a gradual increase in moisture through the weekend with a chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoons. A bigger surge of moisture is possible by Monday and Tuesday leading to more showers and thunderstorms. It's a cool start today, but should make it into the upper 60s to near 70, then a little warmer tomorrow and Saturday, except in the mornings, when it'll still be really cool.
Good morning! Hope everyone had an awesome weekend! Another cool start this morning, but we'll warm up to around 80 degrees this afternoon and again tomorrow afternoon. We'll be a tad warmer tomorrow morning, but a weak front will push morning minimum temperatures back into the 35 to 40 range again Thursday and Friday morning! The air mass will be pretty dry through the end of the week, and while we could see a little cloudiness, overall, not too bad a weather week!
Good morning! We'll see a weather system move across northern Utah today and tomorrow that'll bring a lot of cloudiness and mainly some light rain showers, could be a thunderstorm or two around this afternoon and evening. Any chance of showers tomorrow will be early, then the rest of the day and Monday are looking nice, but a little on the cool side with the max temperatures both days between 65 and 70. Higher pressure will be over us through much of the coming week with the next low pressure into the Pacific Northwest, and we'll see temperatures warming back close to 80 for high temperatures by Wednesday through Friday.
Good morning! We're just about to the long weekend break, and we'll see a cold front move across the area later tomorrow. In advance of this front, we should see our temperatures climb into the low 80s, but there's also a slight chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon and evening. There's also a chance of showers and a couple of thunderstorms later tomorrow and into early Sunday. Overall though, I wouldn't adjust my plans on anything, just know we'll turn a little cooler and there could be a couple of showers around. I want to take a moment and talk about the image below this discussion. This is the precipitation over the last 60 days, and you can see, we've be on the moist side, but California (other than the Sierra's) has been dry. This is fairly typical with the monsoon flow from Mexico up through Arizona and into Utah, BUT we've seen heavier precipitation over us than in most years. The main reason is that we've seen more low pressure systems move into the Pacific Northwest, then as the enter the Great Basin, there's more moisture to work with and thus the increase in rain and thunderstorms. Typically we don't see as much energy from these low pressures move into the West, but that's the reason we're fairly wet and California is on the dry side (still). Have an awesome Friday!
