Good afternoon! Another nice weather day, but a little more high cloudiness and warmer. The system moving into the Pacific Northwest will bring a much cooler air mass later tomorrow and into Tuesday. The snow levels will start off a little high, but lower rapidly with a little snow over the Snyderville Basin (1- 3 inches), but more higher up at the resorts. Once this system exits the area, we should be dry through the remainder of the week and into the weekend! I have to admit, I'm getting spring fever bad and just may have to get my road bike tuned and ready to go!
Good morning! The satellite image shows a strong low pressure over the eastern Pacific, BUT clear skies over us!! I plan on getting out and enjoying the day! A little more cloudiness tomorrow, but dry and warm! It could be my first road bike ride of the season! The storm moves in on Monday and we could see a little rain initially, or high snow levels, but these will drop rapidly and we should see at least a couple of inches of new snow down in the Snyderville Basin, but the resorts could end up close to a foot of new snow! When this system exits the area, Wednesday through the end of the week should be nice and dry.
Good morning! Well, I was too heavy with that system, it produced about half of the precipitation that I expected. We'll see gradual improvement through the day and high pressure is expected through the weekend with lots of sunshine and we should be near 50 or low 50s across the Snyderville Basin on Sunday. The next system will move into the area on Monday and Tuesday, again we start off fairly high on the snow level, but should lower rapidly and we'll see a little snow down here in the Basin, and another shot of snow across the resorts! Another break the second half of next week, so more time to get out and enjoy the slopes!
Good morning! Well, as the satellite image below shows, the next system is moving into the area. The radar image at 8:30 AM shows a band of showers into the northwest corner of the state and this will continue to shift eastward and expand. The snow levels will start out up around 9,000 feet, but steadily fall through the evening, reaching the base of Park City Mountain Resort between 9 and 11 PM, then into the Basin after midnight. It'll be a wet snow again in the lower elevations, but we could see 1 to 3 inches accumulate, if it doesn't melt! I hit the resorts (the ones I deal with- PCMR/ Deer Valley) fairly hard above 8,000 feet and that's where you'll find the best snow! High pressure will move into the area this weekend and it should be an awesome time on the slopes!
Good morning! Sorry, running behind and it just seems like I never get caught up! As you can see from the radar image below, the next system is moving into northern Utah. It's been raining in Salt Lake and and the precipitation is moving slowly into the mountains. This isn't a big storm, and while I do think it'll snow here in the Snyderville Basin, not sure it'll stick or just melt, probably just melt. The ski resorts should see anywhere from 3 to as much as 6 inches and then a nice weather day tomorrow and into Thursday, but by Thursday afternoon and evening, another system will move into the area. The next one is a warmer system with the snow levels starting out up around 8000 feet, then dropping later Thursday night and Friday morning. The best news of all, we should have high pressure and nice weather over the weekend!
Good morning! I took the weekend off from the blog, and it was the first time since over a year ago that I missed two days in the row off! Hope everyone is awesome. We had a weak system last night and early this morning bring a little bit of rain to the Basin and some snow to the resorts. This pattern has been awesome for elevations above around 7500 feet with Park City and Deer Valley around the 2 foot mark in new snow since the middle of last week. We have another system moving across the area tonight and tomorrow, and it'll be really moist and once again we'll see rain and some snow in the Basin, but the resorts will see all snow. The areas above 8000 feet should see 3 to 6 inches of snow with this system and the bases likely in the 2 to 4 inch range. High pressure will move across the area on Wednesday, then another system will reach us Thursday and snow levels will start out fairly high, but drop Thursday ni
Good morning! The first system turned out pretty well with 9 solid inches of snow up across the upper part of the resorts. The second system has moved into California and southern Nevada, and you can see on the satellite image that the moisture is working into Utah and we'll see some sprinkles later this afternoon and evening with the snow level up around 7500 to 8000 feet. A cooler air mass will move into the area later tonight and tomorrow with the snow level lowering to around 5500 feet and should be a fairly steady snowfall, but the high temperature is expected to be above freezing, so that'll help with melting on the roads and driveway. The resorts above 8000 feet should see more than a foot of new snow, and while not light and powdery, it should still be good stuff!
Good morning! The first system is moving across the Great Basin this morning, and we've already had between 1 and 2 inches at the resorts (upper half) and even a little snow in the Basin. You can see a more solid cloud band approaching and it'll move across the area this afternoon and there could be a thunderstorm, but the snow levels will be close to the 7000 foot level. The intensity of the precipitation could bring the snow level down into the Basin, but mainly rain or rain and snow for us in the Basin. The ski resorts will do well though with another 6 inches or so across the upper portions and 2 to 4 inches at the base and in town. The second system moves in tomorrow night and Saturday and while the snow levels are expected to start out fairly high (7500 feet or so), they will drop with snow down into the Snyderville Basin on Saturday with accumulations of 3 or 4 inches, but much more across the upper half of the resorts.
Good morning, and another beautiful start to the day! As you can see from the satellite image below, we do have a system that will move into the area tomorrow. We were around 50 degrees or low 50s yesterday and should do the same again today. As this system moves into the area we're likely to see rain showers in the Basin and some rain and snow mixed in town and up on the lower portion of the resorts. The air mass does cool off enough tomorrow night to lower the snow level below the Snyderville Basin with accumulations of 1 to 3 inches, a little more at the base of the resorts and if I remember correctly, 6 to 8 inches across the upper portion of the resorts. A stronger system is due into the area later Friday through the weekend, and again, likely to start off with high snow levels, then lower as the system moves across the area. This system will be an excellent snow producer across the upper half of the reso
Good morning! A beautiful start and the sun is coming up earlier each morning! That was a positive note for those, like me, who want to hike and bike! We do have a series of systems that will be moving across the area beginning Thursday and will continue through the weekend. These are moist systems and will bring significant accumulations to the mountains. The last data sets I looked at would have a couple of periods where we'll see a wet snow or rain and snow mixed in the Basin, but should be all snow at the resorts. I think by the time we get through the weekend, the mountains will see around 2 feet of new snow (maybe a little more in a couple of locations. Here in the Snyderville Basin, we'll see between 5 and 10 inches spread out and kinda hard to measure because of melting and settling. The first system will arrive Thursday afternoon and evening!
