Good morning!! Quite the couple of storm systems, and like we talked about that system late yesterday and overnight was the colder of the two and we ended up with a fairly impressive snowfall, about 3 inches at my house in Pinebrook to 8 inches up at the 9,000 foot level!! Just off the West Coast, you can see those clouds and they're kind of bent from southwest to northeast, and if I could put motion to it, you'd see they're pushing northward. That is the beginning of the high pressure building into the West and will be shifting into our area Wednesday through Friday, so we have lots of sunshine and some warmer temperatures heading our way! Kind of a rough way to start the week, but definitely looking up soon!!!
Good morning! Well, no surprises so far and looking at the radar from 9 AM this morning, there's a lot of moisture over the area. The air mass gradually cools through the afternoon, so the snow level is likely to drop into Park City, and could see some rain and snow or all wet snow in the Snyderville Basin. I just think accumulations will be minor, except over 8,000 feet. This system exits the area tonight, then a pretty nice start tomorrow, but we'll see another weather system move into the area later tomorrow and tomorrow night. This system is colder, and a better chance of some snow accumulating on the grassy areas. Like I've said for a couple of days, high pressure with a slow warming trend is expected this week and into next Saturday.
Good morning! A quick shout out to my son, as it's his birthday today!!!! The next system is moving into the West, and likely to move across the area in a couple of pieces from later this afternoon through tomorrow with the air mass cooling enough during the day tomorrow to bring at least a mix of rain and snow, if not, all snow! There's a weak front into northern Utah, and you see the enhanced cloudiness or cooler cloud tops over southern Nevada. This is a weak upper level system expected to move northeastward and bring some showers and thunderstorms (scattered) later this afternoon and evening. The main upper level system will move across later tonight and tomorrow. There's one more system to watch, and it'll move across the area later Sunday and Sunday night. This system is a little colder and likely to bring a little snow. Once we get through that mess, high pressure and a slowly warming air mass is expected the rest of next week!!!
Good morning! We should have a really nice weather day over the area, but another low pressure will push into the West tomorrow and into the weekend. South winds will be on the increase later tonight and tomorrow, and most of tomorrow will be dry with a chance of showers and thunderstorms later in the afternoon and night. Rain and thundershowers likely Saturday into the afternoon hours, but more of a break by late afternoon and evening. Another system will bring some showers later Sunday and Sunday night. Yes, both systems (especially) the one later Sunday will have the potential to lower the snow level down into the Snyderville Basin! So, we're not quite done with the snow, but if you stay around here long enough, you'll realize it's not that unusual! Have an awesome Thursday!
Good morning! Well, let's look at the bright side, it's pretty out there with the snow on the trees and grass, but I'm not going to lie, I was at the Bees game Saturday evening enjoying a beer, watching baseball and enjoying the temperature in the 70s!!! We have one more fairly strong low pressure to deal with, and we'll see south winds develop on Friday and these will be fairly strong during the afternoon and evening. The front reaches us Saturday morning, and once again the snow level will lower to the Snyderville Basin, but this system isn't as cold, so not quite as much impact. There will be showers and thunderstorms though!
Good morning! The winds are blowing higher up in the mountains, and will lower into the Snyderville Basin through the day, and could see a couple of showers or a thunderstorm. The cold front will move into the area this evening, and the air behind it is very chilly. Chilly enough for the snow level to drop below the elevation of the Basin. So, we're going to see some snow, but thankfully, it'll melt hitting the pavement. Temperatures on Wednesday will be abnormally cold with max temperatures struggling to get into the 40 to 45 range!! There is one more system and is moves across us over the weekend with the best period of precipitation later Friday and into Saturday, and yes, we'll see the snow level lower into the Snyderville Basin by Saturday morning!! I do see a period of high pressure and warmer temperatures for a couple of day anyway from Wednesday through Friday next week!
Good Day!! A little later than normal, but like the saying goes, better late than never! A little high cloudiness today and it should be warm! We should be near 70 this afternoon, and south winds will keep us warm tonight! In fact, we'll probably be between 65 and 70 tomorrow with strong southerly winds and an increasing chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon. Now, I don't like this anymore than you, but I have a 4 letter word for later Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, yes it'll snow! Another system over the weekend may also bring some snow, but let's deal with one system at a time! If it was mid winter, this system would be a fairly significant snow producer, but as warm as we're getting, it'll melt on the pavement and accumulate a little on the grass. Soooooooo, enjoy the warmth today and tomorrow!
Happy Easter! Many people who read this blog know that I am a Christian, and today is the day I (we) celebrate that Christ was raised from the death. I will celebrate!! We had a couple of rain showers early this morning, but we should have a nice weather day with the high around 60 in the Snyderville Basin. If you want to head to see my friends at Park City Mountain Resort, it should be a nice weather day! There will be a fairly strong low pressure and cold front move into the area Tuesday and Wednesday, so sharply colder on Wednesday!!! Another system is due into the area next weekend. Once that system moves across the area next weekend, we should have a nice little break in the weather pattern! Whatever you do today, have a fun, awesome day!
Good morning! The air mass over us this morning is what we call conditionally unstable, meaning, it needs something to help it become more unstable. A weak upper level system, a little heating and those would do the trick and the best we can get today is some heating. So, we should see a couple of showers and thunderstorms develop this afternoon and evening should be widely scattered. The good news is that we should see some drying of the air mass tomorrow, so plenty of sunshine on Easter. This coming week does have weather issues with a fairly strong low pressure moving into the area Tuesday and Wednesday, and yes, it'll be cold enough for snow!!!
Good morning!!! I'm sorry to all my loyal readers. The last blog posted was Monday, and the one I did Wednesday didn't save! Ugh, bummer! Well, let's get started and the pattern through the end of the month will be quite cool and unsettled. Not so much in the beginning, but by the middle part of next week on into the first couple of days of May. The system over us this morning is really quite weak, and while we'll see a scattering of showers (possibly a thunderstorm) this afternoon through tomorrow, amounts will be on the light side, then a pretty nice Sunday. So, to my friends at Park City Mountain Resort, I think we'll end the season with a fairly decent weather day. There are two, slow moving systems that will move into the region through the end of the month, with the first arriving next Tuesday through Thursday. The second low pressure will be over us from the 27th through the 30th and we should see a little more snow here in the Snyderville Basin. Not all of the precipitation will be snow, but still, I've had some awesome road bike rides lately, so more snow is NOT what I want to see.! I'll keep you posted, but kind of a messy pattern.
