Good morning! The first system turned out pretty well with 9 solid inches of snow up across the upper part of the resorts. The second system has moved into California and southern Nevada, and you can see on the satellite image that the moisture is working into Utah and we'll see some sprinkles later this afternoon and evening with the snow level up around 7500 to 8000 feet. A cooler air mass will move into the area later tonight and tomorrow with the snow level lowering to around 5500 feet and should be a fairly steady snowfall, but the high temperature is expected to be above freezing, so that'll help with melting on the roads and driveway. The resorts above 8000 feet should see more than a foot of new snow, and while not light and powdery, it should still be good stuff!
Good morning! The first system is moving across the Great Basin this morning, and we've already had between 1 and 2 inches at the resorts (upper half) and even a little snow in the Basin. You can see a more solid cloud band approaching and it'll move across the area this afternoon and there could be a thunderstorm, but the snow levels will be close to the 7000 foot level. The intensity of the precipitation could bring the snow level down into the Basin, but mainly rain or rain and snow for us in the Basin. The ski resorts will do well though with another 6 inches or so across the upper portions and 2 to 4 inches at the base and in town. The second system moves in tomorrow night and Saturday and while the snow levels are expected to start out fairly high (7500 feet or so), they will drop with snow down into the Snyderville Basin on Saturday with accumulations of 3 or 4 inches, but much more across the upper half of the resorts.
Good morning, and another beautiful start to the day! As you can see from the satellite image below, we do have a system that will move into the area tomorrow. We were around 50 degrees or low 50s yesterday and should do the same again today. As this system moves into the area we're likely to see rain showers in the Basin and some rain and snow mixed in town and up on the lower portion of the resorts. The air mass does cool off enough tomorrow night to lower the snow level below the Snyderville Basin with accumulations of 1 to 3 inches, a little more at the base of the resorts and if I remember correctly, 6 to 8 inches across the upper portion of the resorts. A stronger system is due into the area later Friday through the weekend, and again, likely to start off with high snow levels, then lower as the system moves across the area. This system will be an excellent snow producer across the upper half of the reso
Good morning! A beautiful start and the sun is coming up earlier each morning! That was a positive note for those, like me, who want to hike and bike! We do have a series of systems that will be moving across the area beginning Thursday and will continue through the weekend. These are moist systems and will bring significant accumulations to the mountains. The last data sets I looked at would have a couple of periods where we'll see a wet snow or rain and snow mixed in the Basin, but should be all snow at the resorts. I think by the time we get through the weekend, the mountains will see around 2 feet of new snow (maybe a little more in a couple of locations. Here in the Snyderville Basin, we'll see between 5 and 10 inches spread out and kinda hard to measure because of melting and settling. The first system will arrive Thursday afternoon and evening!
Good morning! I haven't looked at the stats on the blog for a while, but you guys are awesome. The trend line on the views continues to go up. I love it! We'll see variable cloudiness through Wednesday, but it should remain dry. A weak system will clip us later tonight and tomorrow, but most of the precipitation is east of us. So, fairly mild the next couple of days with max temperatures close to 50! We do have a couple of systems between Thursday and Sunday that will bring an increase in moisture and mostly snow to the Basin and all snow to the resorts! The first system comes in Thursday afternoon and night with a wet snow, but in the range of 2 to 4 inches. This will be a good period for snow at the resorts!!
Good morning! What an awesome start to the day, and it should stay nice all day. If you head to the slopes, take the sunscreen! We should be in the mid 40s in the Basin and low 40s at the base of the resorts! A little cloudiness tomorrow, but overall, another nice day. We do have a couple of weather systems impacting the area this coming week with the first late Wednesday night and Thursday, and this moist southwest flow will favor a good snowfall at Park City, Deer Valley and even the Basin. A second system will arrive later Friday and Saturday and should be another good snow producing system! Have the best Sunday you can!
Good morning! As you can see on the satellite image below, we're right on the southern fringe of the moist northwest flow. So, quite a bit of cloudiness today and could see some light snow or flurries across the upper portion of the resorts. We should have nice weather tomorrow and Monday, so if you head to the slopes, make sure you have sunscreen! Clouds and a chance of snow showers on Tuesday, but a better chance later Wednesday and into Thursday, and another system on Friday into Saturday. These should be all snow events for the resorts, but we could occasionally see a little rain and snow, or all rain here in the Basin.
Good morning! That was a pretty decent cold front that moved across the area yesterday with some strong winds, colder air mass and 6 to 8 inches across the upper portions of Deer Valley and PArk City Mountain Resort. I had 2 or 3 inches, but with the winds and blowing snow I had to take an average. We'll see some flurries or snow showers today through Saturday, but additional accumulations are looking pretty light. A
Good morning! I thought I'd put up a different map this morning, and this is a surface map valid at 6 AM this morning, and the front at 9 AM is about to the mid point of the Great Salt Lake and it'll keep moving southeastward. Should be a fairly solid cold front with a period of moderate to heavy snow and I still think accumulations with this first band will be 2 to 4 inches, then another inch or so later this afternoon through tonight. The upper elevations will obviously see more with accumulations in the 6 to 10 inches by tomorrow morning. Winds will also be strong and gusty with the front! Another system will move across the area tomorrow night and into Friday bringing another period of snow, but it should be lighter with accumulations of an inch or two! The good news is that the weekend is looking good!
Good morning! Not too bad of a day over the area with a little high cloudiness, but dry. A fairly strong cold front is approaching the Pacific Northwest this morning, and will move southeastward into our area tomorrow with snow likely by late morning and afternoon. Another system later Thursday and Friday will bring some snow showers, but amounts are light. The system tomorrow is still looking like 3 or 4 inches in the Basin and 6 to 8 inches across the upper portion of the resorts, but it'll also be pretty windy. The good news is we'll see higher pressure by the weekend and into early next week.
