Good morning! Well, we had the rain and it changed to snow, and a tad sooner than I thought, but that's okay!! Park City Mountain Resort had 9 inches, and saw my friends of at Alta had a foot of new snow. I measured 5 inches at my place at 3 AM, so all of that was in line with what we talked about. I think we have a little more to go through the afternoon with another 1 to 2 inches in the Basin and another 2 to 4 inches at the resorts. Now, the Little Cottonwood Canyon will do better with the northwest flow. The weekend is looking pretty decent, and while I don't see any organized snowfall, I can rule out some snow showers either. Temperatures will be seasonable to a little on the colder than normal side. Enjoy the new snow!
Good morning!! Running a little behind this morning, and hope everyone is doing well! The moisture will continue to spread into the area today with a warm front moving across the area early this afternoon. We should see some snow ahead of the warm front, but it'll change to rain with the snow level climbing to around 8000 feet. The rain will change back to snow between around 10 PM and midnight with snow likely through tomorrow morning, then turn into snow showers tomorrow afternoon. Accumulations will be an inch or so before the rain, then 3 to 6 inches once it changes back to snow. I'm doing this late enough that some of the morning models are coming in and they are a little on the heavier end! The higher elevations will see over a foot of new snow!
Good morning, and it's another nice start to the day! We do have some weather issues to deal with over the next couple of days! Clouds will increase tonight, and we could see some snow showers late tonight and early tomorrow morning, but the snow level will be rising through the latter part of the morning and afternoon with rain likely in the Snyderville Basin, and the snow levels up to around 8000 feet at the ski resorts tomorrow afternoon. The snow level will come crashing down tomorrow night with snow likely into Thursday. Accumulations tomorrow night through Thursday in the Basin will be in the 3 to 6 inch range, and elevations above 8000 feet will likely see amounts exceeding a foot for the storm total!
Good morning! Our quiet weather pattern is coming to an end, and there area some changes to a much more active pattern this week. Now, the transition from where we are now to where we're headed could be kind of messy. Some of the data I'm looking at shows the possibility of the snow level climbing above 7000 feet later Wednesday into early Thursday morning, and that would mean rain across the Snyderville Basin and the lower portion of the resorts. Not all of the models show this, and actually transition us to a colder air mass more rapidly. We'll see the moisture increase on Wednesday and the unsettled weather through Thursday and into Friday. I'll get into more detail tomorrow.
Good morning! The word of the day is "change", and while I love the sunny skies and nice weather, I also would love some snow! The high pressure that has been along the West Coast or into the interior of the West at times, is expected to shift to the west and northwest during the next couple of days. This will allow more energy and moisture to move into the area from the Pacific. Initially, snow levels will be an issue with snow and rain in the Snyderville Basin on Wednesday, but should be mainly snow at the end of the week. The ski resorts will be happy to see this unsettled period and snow moving back into the area!
Good morning! Our prolonged dry period will be coming to an end this next week!! This is good news on a bunch of different levels, as we need the snow, plus the water for next summer. So, we need to make up for the fairly dry period we've been in this winter. A series of systems will move across the area from Wednesday through Friday with a progressively colder air mass. The snow levels on Wednesday are likely to start out fairly high, but should lower by later in the afternoon and night. This certainly has the potential to be a good snow producing situation, especially for the higher elevations
Good morning! Another really nice weather day in the Park City area! We should have decent weather through the weekend, but we'll start to see some changes in the pattern this coming week with an increasing chance of snow by Tuesday and Wednesday. In fact, the unsettled weather is likely into the first week of February, so all of you avid skiers and snowboarders will have some fresh powder to enjoy!! For now, enjoy the sunshine!
Good morning everyone!! Another awesome start to the day, but starting out in the single digits again, but up at 9000 feet this morning is 30 degrees! We will see a weak system move across the area tonight and early tomorrow morning, and you can see it over the Idaho Panhandle on the satellite image. We could see a couple of snow showers, but mainly across the higher elevations. Once it exits the area, we're back to high pressure through the weekend and early next week!!! Enjoy!
Good morning! Yes, another sunny and fairly quiet weather day over the area. If you look at the satellite image, there's a system off the Pacific Northwest, and it'll continue to weaken as it moves up and over the high pressure, and then will drop southward through the Rockies and come westward across us. Kind of a strange path, but it's kind of a strange pattern we're in! We could see a snow shower, but I highly doubt any measurable snowfall, and we'll see the air mass cool off a little. We're back into high pressure for the weekend. I think we have some changes in the extended period, and we begin to see a little more flow into the West by the second half of next week, but until then, be safe and have fun!
Good morning!! I know this is getting boring, reading this blog when the weather is nice! We should have nice weather again today and tomorrow, but a weak system will drop southward across the area later Wednesday night and Thursday. We could see some snow showers, but accumulations should remain less than an inch. We will see the air mass cool off, but the high pressure will move back into the area this weekend. The changes coming in the flow pattern take place next week and into the first week of February, and while the model data has been pretty inconsistent, we should see a couple of systems move across the area bringing a little new snow!
