Happy Easter! Many people who read this blog know that I am a Christian, and today is the day I (we) celebrate that Christ was raised from the death. I will celebrate!! We had a couple of rain showers early this morning, but we should have a nice weather day with the high around 60 in the Snyderville Basin. If you want to head to see my friends at Park City Mountain Resort, it should be a nice weather day! There will be a fairly strong low pressure and cold front move into the area Tuesday and Wednesday, so sharply colder on Wednesday!!! Another system is due into the area next weekend. Once that system moves across the area next weekend, we should have a nice little break in the weather pattern! Whatever you do today, have a fun, awesome day!
Good morning! The air mass over us this morning is what we call conditionally unstable, meaning, it needs something to help it become more unstable. A weak upper level system, a little heating and those would do the trick and the best we can get today is some heating. So, we should see a couple of showers and thunderstorms develop this afternoon and evening should be widely scattered. The good news is that we should see some drying of the air mass tomorrow, so plenty of sunshine on Easter. This coming week does have weather issues with a fairly strong low pressure moving into the area Tuesday and Wednesday, and yes, it'll be cold enough for snow!!!
Good morning!!! I'm sorry to all my loyal readers. The last blog posted was Monday, and the one I did Wednesday didn't save! Ugh, bummer! Well, let's get started and the pattern through the end of the month will be quite cool and unsettled. Not so much in the beginning, but by the middle part of next week on into the first couple of days of May. The system over us this morning is really quite weak, and while we'll see a scattering of showers (possibly a thunderstorm) this afternoon through tomorrow, amounts will be on the light side, then a pretty nice Sunday. So, to my friends at Park City Mountain Resort, I think we'll end the season with a fairly decent weather day. There are two, slow moving systems that will move into the region through the end of the month, with the first arriving next Tuesday through Thursday. The second low pressure will be over us from the 27th through the 30th and we should see a little more snow here in the Snyderville Basin. Not all of the precipitation will be snow, but still, I've had some awesome road bike rides lately, so more snow is NOT what I want to see.! I'll keep you posted, but kind of a messy pattern.
Good morning! No surprises with the system moving across the area yesterday, and there were a couple of "thunder"snow showers around, and yes these do occur!!! A cold start to the morning, but clear skies and it should be another awesome weather day! Now, there are a couple of weather systems that will impact us over the coming week, but fairly weak. The first is a system along the Pacific Northwest Coast this morning and will clip us tomorrow and into early Wednesday, and another system on Friday. Both will bring a chance of snow showers across the upper part of the resorts, but the only one open on this side is Park City Mountain Resort and my friends there. All in all, we finish the weak up milder, but with more of a split flow and any system would be weak.
Good morning! I have really enjoyed this last week of awesome weather, BUT it's not going to last. You can see on the satellite image that there's a little increase in cloudiness and that will lead to a chance of a thunderstorm later this afternoon and evening. Much cooler tomorrow, and yes there's a chance of snow showers and we could see an inch on the grass and the upper portion of the resorts could see 1 to 3 inches. Another weather system will move across the area later Tuesday and Wednesday with another chance of snow or snow showers on Wednesday. Have an awesome Saturday!
Good Day! There's a little cloudiness over eastern Idaho and clipping the northern border of Utah today, otherwise today and tomorrow are looking nice! The area of clouds you see just west of the British Columbia Coast are associated with a system that will move across the area later Saturday and Sunday, ushering in a cooler air mass, and we could see a brief shower, mainly on Sunday. We should be in the low to mid 60s today and tomorrow, so let's enjoy this weather!! There's another system possible Tuesday and into Wednesday and we could see some flurries at the tail end of this system on Wednesday. So, a couple of not so nice weather days in the extended, and more the reason to get out and enjoy the sunny, mild temperatures.
Good morning! We've talked about the high pressure moving into the area this week, and now we're feeling the impact! Temperatures will climb well above normal, and we should be 60 to 65 in the Snyderville Basin today, and mid to even upper 60s tomorrow. That skinny band of clouds you see off the West Coast will be a system that passes on Thursday, and it'll cool us a tiny bit, but still above normal and dry through the end of the week. One more system over the weekend will drop southward through the Rockies, and it'll bring some cooler air to us, but I think most of the moisture stays east. So, we should be drier this weekend, but cooler, especially on Sunday. Get out and enjoy this awesome spring weather!!
Good morning! Still a fairly moist northwest flow into the area today, so a chance of showers, mainly snow showers. High pressure is just off the West Coast, and will be shifting into the area bringing some nice weather this week. One weak system mid week will bring a little cloudiness, but it should remain dry and max temperatures will be climbing into the mid 60s! So, just need to get through today, then some awesome weather!
Good morning! Well, I'm not too impressed with the area of low pressure over the interior of the West. A fairly disorganized cloud pattern and the showers are pretty scattered. So, a mix of clouds, sun and some light showers (mainly snow showers) today and into tomorrow. HIgh pressure will bring a drier, warmer air mass to the region starting Monday and will be over us much of next week. The warmest day is looking to be Wednesday when we'll be pushing the mid 60s for a high!!!
Good morning! A nice start to the day with sunny skies and cool temperatures! There is a weak, fairly disorganized weather system moving into the West, so a gradual increase in cloudiness and we could see some snow showers tonight and over the weekend, but the dynamics and overall lift is fairly weak. So, any snow accumulations are expected to be light and mainly across the upper part of the resorts. I do have some awesome news for those that are ready for more spring-like weather, as high pressure will move into the area and be with us much of the week. This means we'll see warmer temperatures and some road bike rides! Have an awesome Friday!
