Good morning!! Another nice morning in the mountains, it's 8 degrees at my house this morning, 20 degrees near the base at Park City Mountain Resort, and 30 degrees at the 9,000 foot level!! All in all, a pretty impressive inversion! We hit the low 40s for a high yesterday and should do it again today and tomorrow. We'll see a weak system move into the Pacific Northwest on Wednesday, then possibly into the Intermountain region on Thursday. We could see a couple of snow showers, but this is a very weak system. More significant changes in the pattern come at the end of the month from around the 29th on through the first week of February. We could see a couple of systems move across the area, and we need them!!! Have an awesome Sunday!
Good morning! Another awesome morning, and with high pressure over the area, should be a beautiful day in the mountains! You can see a little cloudiness moving into the Pacific Northwest, but these are mainly high clouds. We should maintain this nice weather pattern through the first half of next week, then there's a chance of a weak system moving into the area late next Thursday that could bring some clouds and snow showers. I still believe we'll have to wait until the end of the month before we see a bigger adjustment in the pattern and then it might be temporary.
Good morning, and I hope everyone is doing well! A beautiful day in the mountains, and in fact, we're going to have several really nice weather days. So, if you're up in Park City for the Sundance Film Festival or for the Freeskiing event at Park City Mountain Resort, the weather should be about as good as it gets for this time of year! The high pressure will weaken some at the end of next week, but any significant storminess will have to wait until the very end of the month or early next month! Have an awesome Friday!
Good morning! Well, the challenge is to try to keep these informative, BUT there's only so many ways you can describe high pressure! The center of the high pressure is just off the northern California Coast and will be shifting slowly eastward through the weekend. This is the type of situation where the inversion gets fairly strong in the Salt Lake Valley and we have awesome weather up here in Park City, and thus, one of the reasons I moved up here back in the early 1990's! Have a great day!
Good morning! The air mass has dried out and is beginning to warm a little. The center of the high pressure is just off the northern California Coast and will be shifting slowly eastward, but will be over the interior of the West by Friday. This means, a lot of sunshine during the day, milder temperatures and some great weather to enjoy the activities going on in Park City and the surrounding area.
Good morning! I had another 2 inches overnight, add that to the 1 that feel during the day yesterday and the 5 inches Saturday night and that brings the storm total to 8 inches and that fits nicely in the 6 to 9 inch range expected. As you tell from the satellite images, there's still quite a bit of moisture over the West and we'll see quite a bit more cloudiness and even some flurries today, but a gradual decrease in cloudiness as the high pressure moves into the area. We should have some nice weather through the coming weekend!
Good morning!! It's cold, windy and as you can see from the radar (7:45 AM) that there's still some snow and we'll continue to see snow or snow showers through the afternoon and tonight. I measured between 4 and 5 inches of new snow at my house, and we should get another 1 to 3 inches additional through tonight. There could be some spots a little higher, as there will be some heavier snow showers around. The winds are likely to be an issue all day, and it is windy at the resorts and any terrain that has a northwest exposure. We slowly dry the air mass tomorrow, then high pressure with sunny days and clear nights from Tuesday through the end of the week.
Good Saturday morning! Other than some high clouds and some breezy south winds developing this afternoon, it should be a nice weather day with the high temperature pushing around 40 degrees, 50 if you're going to be in Salt Lake. The cold front is running north-south through central Washington and Oregon this morning with intense snowfalls reported in the Oregon Cascades. We'll see the snow level near 7000 feet late this afternoon and early evening, then lowering rapidly around midnight and through Sunday morning. The front is going to push across us between 2 or 3 AM, and we should see moderate to heavy snow with the front, then occasional snow or snow showers Sunday afternoon and night. Total accumulations from tonight through Monday morning will be in the 6 to 9 inches across the Snyderville Basin, and probably around a foot or a little more at the resorts. The other component to this storm is the wind, and we'll see the south winds increase this afternoon and evening, shifting to the northwest and gusty later tonight and tomorrow. All in all, a really impressive weather system. High pressure will move into the area Tuesday through the end of the week!
Good morning!! Running way behind this morning, and the forecasts for the clients I have (ie:the paying ones) are taking a lot of time. A moist northwest flow is over us today and tonight, but looking at the satellite images, it's not very organized. This is one of those cases where I believe the models are overdone with the amount of precipitation, and we'll see mainly light snow (an inch or two), but also some gusty winds!! Let's take a little bit of time and talk about that system over the eastern Pacific. I've been telling my clients all week that this is the most energetic of the systems to impact us. We'll see a nice break during the day tomorrow with gusty south winds and mild temperatures! The cold front with that system off the West Coast will reach us between 3 and 6 AM Sunday bringing strong winds and heavy snow. This system will generate approximately a half an inch liquid, so 6 to 8 inches across the Basin and more at the resorts. High pressure will move into the area for much of next week!
Good morning! More snow!!! The system moving across the area will bring snow through much of the day, then a little break tonight before another weather system (just off the Pacific Northwest this morning) moves into the area and the models coming out this morning is showing a lot of precipitation being generated. There's another system later Saturday afternoon and into Sunday morning, so all in all, a very snowy period and we need it! Here in the Basin, we should see 3 to 6 inches today, and I would've said 3 to 6 tomorrow, but if the latest data is correct, it could be quite a bit more. So, be safe out there and we have high pressure next week to get out and enjoy the new snow!
