Good morning! We should have a really nice weather day over the area, but another low pressure will push into the West tomorrow and into the weekend. South winds will be on the increase later tonight and tomorrow, and most of tomorrow will be dry with a chance of showers and thunderstorms later in the afternoon and night. Rain and thundershowers likely Saturday into the afternoon hours, but more of a break by late afternoon and evening. Another system will bring some showers later Sunday and Sunday night. Yes, both systems (especially) the one later Sunday will have the potential to lower the snow level down into the Snyderville Basin! So, we're not quite done with the snow, but if you stay around here long enough, you'll realize it's not that unusual! Have an awesome Thursday!
Good morning! Well, let's look at the bright side, it's pretty out there with the snow on the trees and grass, but I'm not going to lie, I was at the Bees game Saturday evening enjoying a beer, watching baseball and enjoying the temperature in the 70s!!! We have one more fairly strong low pressure to deal with, and we'll see south winds develop on Friday and these will be fairly strong during the afternoon and evening. The front reaches us Saturday morning, and once again the snow level will lower to the Snyderville Basin, but this system isn't as cold, so not quite as much impact. There will be showers and thunderstorms though!
Good morning! The winds are blowing higher up in the mountains, and will lower into the Snyderville Basin through the day, and could see a couple of showers or a thunderstorm. The cold front will move into the area this evening, and the air behind it is very chilly. Chilly enough for the snow level to drop below the elevation of the Basin. So, we're going to see some snow, but thankfully, it'll melt hitting the pavement. Temperatures on Wednesday will be abnormally cold with max temperatures struggling to get into the 40 to 45 range!! There is one more system and is moves across us over the weekend with the best period of precipitation later Friday and into Saturday, and yes, we'll see the snow level lower into the Snyderville Basin by Saturday morning!! I do see a period of high pressure and warmer temperatures for a couple of day anyway from Wednesday through Friday next week!
Good Day!! A little later than normal, but like the saying goes, better late than never! A little high cloudiness today and it should be warm! We should be near 70 this afternoon, and south winds will keep us warm tonight! In fact, we'll probably be between 65 and 70 tomorrow with strong southerly winds and an increasing chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Now, I don't like this anymore than you, but I have a 4 letter word for later Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, yes it'll snow! Another system over the weekend may also bring some snow, but let's deal with one system at a time! If it was mid winter, this system would be a fairly significant snow producer, but as warm as we're getting, it'll melt on the pavement and accumulate a little on the grass. Soooooooo, enjoy the warmth today and tomorrow!
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.
