Sorry, missed the discussion yesterday, as I was taking care of vehicle issues! Well, the last day of February, and there's some sunshine out there! I think we'll see a gradual increase in cloud cover through the afternoon and especially tonight, as a couple of very weak systems move southward through the Rockies. HIgh pressure will shift into the area tomorrow, so any cloudiness early will decrease, and Saturday is looking like a bluebird day and temperatures in the Snyderville Basin into the mid 40s! Put some sunscreen on heading to the slopes as you can get burned easily. There are a couple of systems heading our way with the first arriving on Sunday bringing some light snow, then another system by Wednesday and Thursday next week! So, a little bit of everything for everyone!
Good morning! A little light snow this morning, but that weak system is already shifting east of us, so we'll see more breaks through the afternoon, but still a chance of a lingering snow shower. A break in the pattern tomorrow, then we get clipped with a system on Thursday and I'm only seeing some clouds and not much in the way of snow. High pressure will move into the area Friday and Saturday, so those are looking like great play days! Another system will freshen up the slopes on Sunday
Wow, a beautiful morning with the blue skies and the fresh snow from the other day, but it was a little chilly. At my place it was -3 degrees for the low this morning! Our next system will bring an increase in cloudiness this afternoon, as it moves southeastward from the Pacific Northwest. It isn't the strongest system of the season, but we'll see some light snow develop a little before midnight and continue through tomorrow morning bringing 1 to 3 inches to the Snyderville Basin and Park City, but 3 or 4 inches across the upper portion of the resorts. One more system on Thursday, and it's even weaker than the one later tonight. High pressure will bring nice weather on Friday and Saturday before another system brings a chance of snow on Sunday!!! Have a good day everyone!
Just enough moisture in the air mass for some snow flurries this morning, but these shouldn't really add up to much. The ski conditions should be awesome, and the winds will be lighter on the mountain today. The next system arrives tomorrow night and Tuesday morning, and is looking like a light snowfall with amounts in the 1 to 3 inch range from around midnight until Noon on Tuesday. High pressure will be gradually pushing into the area by the end of the week and next weekend, so some really nice weather is expected.
It's 9 AM as I'm typing this discussion, and the cold front is on a line from Ogden to Tooele and will continue eastward reaching Salt Lake between 10 and 10:30 and up into the Park City area around 11 AM. Gusty winds, and a period of moderate to heavy snow is expected with the front. The radar shows about a 75- 90 mile wide band of snow, so nearly 3 hours of snow, then we'll see occasional snow or snow showers through the rest of the afternoon and evening. Accumulations of 3 to 6 inches across the Snyderville Basin and up into Park City with 5 to 8 inches across the upper portion of the resorts through the early evening hours. We'll see some additional snow showers overnight and into tomorrow, but additional accumulation will be less than an inch. Another system will move across the area late Monday night and Tuesday with 1 to 3 inches in the basin. Be safe!
Good morning/ afternoon! We have a fairly weak system moving across northern Utah this morning and early afternoon bringing mainly light snow, but I do see some pockets of moderate snow on the radar. So, an inch or maybe 2 inches of new snow. The satellite images show a fairly impressive system coming out of the Gulf of Alaska and will reach us tomorrow morning. This is a pretty energetic system with gusty winds, and snow with a band of moderate to heavy snow likely, so be careful if you're planning travel to or from Salt Lake, as the canyon will be difficult to travel through. Accumulations in the Snyderville Basin up to Park City will be in the 4 to 6 inch range with 8 to 10 inches across the upper portion of the resorts! The front should be moving across us between
Good morning/afternoon! Well, I had a little under an inch of snow overnight and the air mass is moist enough for more snow showers today and tomorrow, but any additional accumulations should be less than an inch. I continue to like the system on Saturday, just wish it didn't move through the area as fast as it will be. It should be a fairly quick 3 to 5 inches on Saturday with 6 to 8 inches across the upper portion of the resorts. We'll see some snow showers linger into Sunday with a little more accumulation. A couple of additional systems are possible, but the latest data suggests that these will stay more north of us.
Good morning, and welcome to the Wednesday edition of the Park City weather blog!!! A fair amount of cloudiness has moved into the area overnight and this morning, but the center of the low pressure is near San Diego early this morning and will move across central Arizona this afternoon and into the Plains tomorrow. If you've been following these blogs on a regular basis, we went through this same type of system 10 to 12 days ago, and we saw an inch or two in the Basin and 6 to 9 inches across the upper portion of the resorts. We'll see some light snow or snow showers develop over the area this afternoon and evening with an inch or two across the Snyderville Basin and 3 to 5 inches across the upper portion of the resorts, just not a great snow producer! Now, a stronger cold front is on tap for Saturday and the front should be here between 9 AM and Noon. This system will drop a fairly quick 3 to 6 inches in the Basin and probably 6 to 10 inches across the upper part of the resorts, just wish it wasn't moving through as fast as it will be. The good news is that there could be a similar system later Monday and Tuesday!!!! Stay tuned, and I'll keep you updated on the pattern!
Good morning/ afternoon! A couple of storms we need to talk about this morning. One is located just off the northern California Coast and it'll head toward San Diego and be there tomorrow morning, then move across central Arizona during the day tomorrow. Typically, this path leaves northern Utah with just some light snow, and I think that will be the case with this system. We'll see some light snow tomorrow through much of Thursday with total storm accumulations in the Basin up to Park City in the 2 to 4 inch range, with 4 to 8 inches across the upper portion of the resorts. Now, the second system is due on Saturday and this will have more of a direct hit on northern Utah. Now, these systems are great snow producing systems for locations exposed to the northwest flow (like Alta and Snowbird), but we'll also see a period of moderate to heavy snow along with gusty winds and a much colder air mass!
