Good morning! Sundance is well underway, and our weather pattern couldn't be much nicer. The bluebird days will continue through the weekend, and the temperature this morning in town is 17 degrees, but we should climb into the mid and upper 30s. It's a little colder in the Snyderville Basin with single digits, but we should also climb into the mid 30s. We'll see some changes in the pattern with a weak system moving into the area next Thursday, then a potentially stronger system between the 27th and 29th. We'll keep an eye on that system, but for now, enjoy the sunshine and warmer than normal temperatures.
Okay, I admit it, I'm a little bored with the weather pattern right now, BUT I am enjoying the deep blue skies and sunshine! I moved out here from Ohio in 1980 and got my meteorology degree from the University of Utah, and just fell in love with the mountains and the weather! The one thing I didn't like were the inversions with the poor air quality in the Salt Lake Valley, so living in Park City is a huge blessing! The high pressure will be with us through the first half of next week, then begin to weaken a little with a couple of systems moving across the area. The first is pretty weak, but the second system has the potential to bring a shot of snow, along with some colder temperatures
While high pressure will remain with us through early next week, there are a couple of systems possible in the not too distant future. The fog in the Snyderville Basin is likely to be with us a couple of mornings, as the high pressure provides a stable air mass. There's some warmer temperatures up on the slopes with readings at the 9000 foot level in the mid 20s, as opposed to the sub zero temperatures in the Snyderville Basin and the single digits in town. So, pretty much no changes in the pattern through next Tuesday, then we'll have one system clip us on Wednesday, but a little stronger system on the 27th... I know, I know.. that's a little far out there, but we've got to look when we can change the pattern a little!! Have a good one!
Good morning! Well, a fairly quiet weather pattern for the next week or so, as a strong high pressure is along the West Coast, at least in the upper part of the atmosphere. At the surface, the high pressure is centered over northern Utah. The temperatures across the ridges will be warming over the next couple of days, and that should translate to a little warmer up here during the days. At night, we get a temperature inversion develop,
We talked about this the other day, and even know it's coming, isn't any easier to take! It was -22 degrees at my house this morning, and I saw -22 degrees in the Kimball Junction area and -23 degrees at Silver Creek Junction! Closer to Park City, it was -11 degrees, so all around it was a really cold morning! The air mass will slowly warm through the week, and we'll see some much warmer temperatures moving in across the upper portions of the resort later tomorrow and through the end of the week. It should be a nice stretch of weather
Good morning! Well, I had -12 degrees at my house this morning and a couple of -14 degrees from a couple of stations in the Snyderville Basin and it was -8 degrees in Park City (at the base of Park City Mountain Resort)! It'll be a cold day across the area and another bitter cold night. There'll be a little cloudiness at times, and there could be a little snow shower activity over the upper elevations. It's still looking like the high pressure strengthens into the West by midweek and on through next weekend and we should see temperatures warming Wednesday through next weekend. An awesome pattern to get out and enjoy the great outdoors!
The clearing skies, light winds and all the new snow add up to bitter cold temperatures. Already at 7 PM it's -2 in Pinebrook and in Park City with -9 at 9000 feet and -12 degrees up at 10,000 feet... this all adds up to readings dropping to -10 to -20 degrees in the Snyderville Basin!
Good morning!!! Hope all of you have something fun planned for the weekend. There's still enough moisture in the air mass through the weekend for quite a bit of cloudiness and a chance of snow showers, but accumulation should be really light. The main message for the next couple of days will be the cold temperatures, and with any clearing tomorrow morning and Monday morning, the Snyderville Basin will be between 10 and 20 degrees below zero!!! It's below zero at the resorts this morning, so dress warm if you're heading out. Not much in the way of precipitation in the coming week, as high pressure shift to the West Coast or a little
I have to say I still love big snowstorms, AND especially when they behave like I think they will. We still have some more to go with this system, as the satellite images show clouds increasing over northern Utah and the radar has shown an increase in the last couple of hours. We should see a return to a steady snowfall by late morning and into the afternoon. Additional accumulations through tonight will be in the 2 to 4 inch range and it'll be a really cold pattern for the next couple of days. A little clearing and we'll be -15 degrees in the Snyderville Basin by Sunday and Monday morning, possibly a couple of spots will be colder. There will be a warming trend of some sunny days next week. Be safe!
South winds increased overnight, and that's a good indication of a storm moving into the area. So, where is it, and how bad?? The cold front has moved into western Utah with an area of low pressure located near Ely, Nevada. This is a setup for a significant snowfall for the Wasatch Front, and we'll see the front into Salt Lake by around noon or 1 PM, then into Park City by 1 or 2 PM with snow increasing behind the front and sharply colder. That wave of low pressure (called a Williams Wave) will move northeastward along the front and slow or stall the front over the area bringing a period of moderate to heavy snow late this afternoon and evening. Accumulations in the Park City area will be somewhat dependent on if this front stalls, but amounts of 6 to 10 inches, and some areas near a foot. The higher parts of the resorts will receive 12 to 18 inches and the Little Cottonwood Canyon resorts will see up to 3 feet from the storm
