Good morning! This is a little later than I like, but some mornings don't go as planned! The next system is moving into the area, and it's been snowing at the resorts since around 5 or 6 AM with 1 to 3 inches from in town up to the top of the resorts. The snow will increase over the rest of the Snyderville Basin through the afternoon and tonight. The output from the models bring enough precipitation for 4 to 7 inches of fluffy snow for much of the area and close to a foot of POW across the upper portion of the resorts. So, there will be some awesome conditions out there! The air mass/ temperatures are still really cold, so any snow that falls will stick and the roads will get bad in a hurry, so be safe!!! When we clear out Sunday night and Monday morning, the low temperatures will be back down to -15 degrees in the Basin and -5 degrees or so in town. A little break in the pattern and some milder temperatures by mid week!!
Good morning! Let's see, I was -12 degrees this morning, so a tad warmer than yesterday, and no I couldn't feel a difference! A little colder this morning up in Park City with the golf course at -8 and the low at Park City Mountain Resort of -6 degrees. Should be a fairly decent weather day, yes, it'll be cold, but some sunshine and a little cloudiness mixed in. Now, our next storm system is off the Pacific Northwest Coast this morning and will move southeastward bringing some snow to the area tomorrow and tomorrow night. This will be a low density, meaning dry, powdery snow and should be high quality snow to ski on. Hint: Hit the slopes or any outdoor activity where you want some quality snow! Accumulations are always difficult with these systems, as the low density stuff can really pile up (more air between the flakes), but from a dynamic and orographic aspect it's very weak. Here's my caution to anyone traveling: roads are likely to be a mess with even a couple of inches of new snow, so plan to slow down and it'll take longer to where you're going! Accumulations through tomorrow night will be in the 4 to 7 inch range and I would say the heaviest will fall in the afternoon and evening.
Good morning, and it was cold this morning, and it's still cold. I had a low of -15 degrees at my house and it was -16 degrees in Kimball Junction and out by Silver Creek Junction, -10 degrees at the Park City Golf Course and -7 at the base at Park City Mountain Resort! We'll see a little recovery today, but we're cold through early next week. We'll see some clouds the next couple of days with some light snow likely later tomorrow night through early Sunday. Not a big system, but still should see some light snow, probably in the 2 to 4 inch range for the entire period. Then by Monday morning with clear skies, we should be back down where we are this morning!!! Stay warm everyone!
Good morning!!! Other than the front being a couple of hours slower than I expected, this system behaved pretty well and I'm very much like a kid on Christmas when the forecast verifies! We're pretty cold this morning, but there was still a little cloudiness in the area, it's 4 degrees at my house and while we'll make it into the teens (I hope) today, clearing skies and even colder air aloft will result in temperatures tomorrow morning of 10 to 15 degrees BELOW ZERO. I am NOT okay with this, and the cold continues through the weekend and early next week. We'll see a weak system bring clouds and some light snow later Friday through Saturday, so a little bit of a break in the bitter cold, but then when it shifts east we're right back down below zero again. I just need to mention that these temperatures are for the Snyderville Basin, and while cold at the ski resorts, it won't get as cold as the Basin. Be safe and stay warm!!!
Good morning on this snowy Tuesday! The front took a little longer to move into the area, but it's made it and I'm at 20 degrees at 8 AM and I've had 3, maybe 4 inches of snow, but the wind has kinda blown it around. I saw at the top of Park City, Jupiter has had around a foot of new snow! The front is only moving slowly southward with a fairly moist westerly flow feeding into the area, so we'll see period of snow through the remainder of the morning and into the afternoon. The snow density drops off significantly, meaning the snow falling now and through the remainder of the day is really light and powdery!! We have some really cold mornings coming up, and like I've said, any clearing and we're likely to see -10 degrees and right now Thursday morning and Friday morning are prime to see those bitter cold temperatures. Another chance of light snow later Friday night and Saturday, then another next Monday into Tuesday!!
Good morning! The system moving into the Pacific Northwest and Great Basin today and tomorrow, is a system that originated back over Siberia! We'll see a period of snow, and should develop later this afternoon and increase overnight with accumulations of 3 to 6 inches through early tomorrow morning. Snow showers will continue throughout the day, with another wave of low pressure bringing some more snow tomorrow night and into early Wednesday. The air mass will be very cold through the coming weekend with another chance of snow on Saturday. Should we get some clearing on one of these late night or early mornings, min temperatures would drop below zero and the best chance of this
Good morning! The high pressure is gone, and we're going to see the changes in the pattern we've talked about for the last week, take form over the next couple of days. I've moved up the timing on the snowfall on all of my forecasts this morning, and we'll see the snow increase late tomorrow afternoon and night with the heaviest likely occurring in this period. We're looking at accumulations throughout the Basin of 3 to 5 inches, then some lighter snow or snow showers on Tuesday, but minor accumulations. The air mass will be very cold Tuesday through the end of the week with min temperatures in the Snyderville Basin below zero by Thursday and Friday morning, could also be Wednesday morning, but some
Good morning! The flow pattern is in the process of changing with the system over eastern Alaska and Northwest Territories starting to head southward. We will see a little cloudiness from a weak system later tonight and tomorrow, but other than a chance of flurries across the upper portion of the mountains, it should be dry. The cold front will be into northern Utah late Monday night/ early Tuesday morning bringing a period of snow, gusty winds and ushering in a much colder air mass. Snow accumulations on Tuesday are expected to be in the 3 to 6 inch range across the Basin and more from the town on up to the top of the resorts. The air mass following this system is much colder with max temperatures by Thursday and Friday in the teens to low 20s, but the low temperatures by Friday morning are likely to be below zero!
Good morning! We've had some really awesome weather this week, but I'm ready for a change! We'll see a system drop southward into the Pacific Northwest by Monday, then continue southeastward into our area later Tuesday and Wednesday. No, there's a fairly large spread in timing between the models, so this is something I'll have to refine as we get closer. We'll go through a period of snow when the system moves across the area with the consensus being around a half an inch liquid, so probably in the range of 4 to 7 inches with a much colder air mass following the front, so the end of next week will be much colder!
Good morning and I hope everyone has an awesome Thanksgiving Day! As you can see on the satellite picture below, the only low pressure is located off the Southern California Coast. So, should be a fairly quiet couple of days with our weather pattern! It won't last long though, as a weak system clips the area on Sunday with some clouds and a chance of a couple of snow showers, then the stronger cold front we've been talking about later Monday night or Tuesday. The much colder air will be with us for several days, and we'll see some snow from a couple of different systems moving across the area. So, enjoy the next couple of days before the much colder, unsettled weather moves in!
