Happy Easter! A beautiful morning and should be a nice weather day over the area! There's an area of low pressure moving into California that will bring an increase in showers tonight and tomorrow with the snow level likely remaining above around 7500 feet. The showers will linger early Tuesday, but improving conditions during the day with a couple of nice weather days through the middle of the week. The next chance of showers later Thursday and into Friday morning, then a potentially cooler air mass by Sunday of next weekend
A milder and somewhat moist and unstable air mass will be spreading into the area over the next couple of days. We'll see some showers and snow levels up between 8,000 and 9,000 feet right on through the weekend. I would say the best chance of precipitation will come Sunday and into Monday with the snow level lowering to around 7500 feet. So, A chance of showers each day with a peak late in the weekend. Our make temperatures from the Basin up into Park City will be between 55 and 60 degrees over the next couple of days!
It's mornings like this where I really get spring fever, and as we shift the low to more of a westerly direction, we'll see our temperatures warm the next couple of days. We'll see some clouds, and could even see a couple of showers, especially as we get to the weekend. The flow into the western states is split with most of the energy going around us! Quite the change from the end of last week and the weekend when we had a pretty strong cold front and low pressure move across the area!!
We've started the transition out of the colder northwest for to more a milder westerly flow. In that change, we're going to see a couple of weak systems move across the area. One today will bring a lot of clouds and even a chance of light showers with the snow level around 7000 feet on up. I would say variable cloudiness through the end of the week with some milder temperatures, but could be a chance of a couple of showers (nothing heavy) through Saturday. A little higher chance on Sunday, as the low pressure moves by to our south. All in all, nothing very strong with regards to fronts over the next 5 to 7 days
Hope everyone is doing well on this Monday! This morning was probably the last really cold morning in a while. I was 2 degrees for a low at my house, and now we're going to shift from the cold northerly flow to a milder west to southwest flow by tomorrow and through the remainder of the week. A weak system later tomorrow will bring an increase in cloudiness and still cool enough for some snow showers down to around 6000 feet. By the end of the week, a little more moisture will make it into the area Friday into the weekend, but the snow levels will be up around 8,000 or a little higher.
No surprises in the last 24 hours, as the upper portions of Park City had 6 inches and The Canyons reported 9 inches. We'll continue to see some snow showers through the afternoon and even a couple tomorrow, but overall we should see minor accumulations down here in the Snyderville Basin up to Park City. The air mass is really cold with our temperatures well below normal. We'll transition out of this low pressure to more of a Pacific flow in the coming week, so we should see some milder temperatures, BUT no strong high pressure as we'll see another system spread into the area by the end of the week or next weekend.
The next system has moved into the area this morning, and this is a fairly legit system. It's ushering in a colder air mass aloft, has great dynamics and should be a very effective snow producer this morning into the afternoon. The colder air mass results in a real powdery snow, and we could easily see 2 to 4 inches (even a little more possible) over the next 24 hours from the Basin up into Park City, and the upper portions of the resorts should be able to add 6 to 8 inches of the fluffy stuff! An awesome ski weekend! Snow showers will be around tomorrow and into Sunday, but with decreasing amounts, then a break for much of the coming week.
That was quite the cold front this morning, as there were thunderstorms when I woke up at 3:30 AM, then between 2 and 3 inches of snow through about 9 AM, and now the sun is coming out. The main front is shifting away and we could see some clouds and snow showers, but additional accumulations today are not expected. Another system will move across northern Utah tomorrow and we could see another inch or two of snow and a little more across the upper portion of the resorts. This will be really light, powdery snow, so enjoy another weekend
Welcome to spring! It's official, at 5:02 AM this morning it became spring. Now, if you've been reading my blog over the last month, you know to me, spring began the first of March! The first of a couple of systems has moved into the area and this is the mild system with snow levels up around 7500 to 8000 feet and we'll stay at those levels through this evening. A colder air mass is on the way though and will move into the area after midnight and through tomorrow morning. We'll see 1 to 3 inches of snow between Kimball Junction and Park City, and totals in the mountains through tomorrow will be in the 6 to 10 inch range. A colder system will move across the area on Friday into early Saturday with bringing a little more snow, and ski conditions at the resorts should be excellent this weekend!
Hope everyone is doing well! Should be a fairly decent weather day over Park City! A little high cloudiness, but dry and should be pushing 50 degrees this afternoon. We do have several weather systems to move across the area between now and Saturday. The first of these systems is fairly mild and will move across the area tomorrow afternoon and night with the snow level up around 7500 feet, so mainly rain or rain showers for the Snyderville Basin up into Park City. A cold front later tomorrow night and Thursday will bring an inch or two of snow to the area, and a little more across the upper portion of the resorts. In fact, tomorrow through Thursday should bring 6 to 10 inches of snow above 9,000 feet. There's another system later Friday into early Saturday and it's quite a bit colder, but should also bring some snow.
