Good morning!! Hope everyone is doing well! I don't do this often enough, but the normal max temperature for Park City on May 30th is 70 degrees, and the normal min temperature is 35, but slightly cooler on the mins in the Snyderville Basin, as we're in the low spot of the area and the cooler air pools down at the bottom of the Basin. We hit 73 yesterday and we should be about 5 degrees warmer this afternoon, and even a little warmer tomorrow. The weak low pressure could produce an isolated thunderstorm, but I really wouldn't let it stop me from doing anything outside through the weekend. This pattern is likely with us through next week, and while not super hot, we should be 3 to 5 degrees above normal on the max temperatures! Have an awesome Friday!
Good morning! Well, this is the 2nd or 3rd time that I know I've done a blog and then it doesn't show up. Sorry about that, I know there are some out there that actually like reading these blogs and I admit I take a day off here and there, but try not to take multiple days off in a row! We had a cold front move into northern Utah overnight, and the air mass is running 10 to 15 degrees cooler than yesterday, and we hit 82 in the Snyderville Basin and up in Park City, so when the sun comes out later this morning or early afternoon, we should be in the upper 60s to near 70. I can't rule out a chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon or really each afternoon and evening through the weekend. We'll see some south winds return tomorrow afternoon and Saturday, and that will boost our temperature into the mid to upper 70s. These thunderstorms aren't big rain producers, so not much worry about raining anything out.
Good morning! We should have an awesome weather day for this Memorial Day! I'd like to take a moment and acknowledge all of the men and women, past and present for their sacrifice to our country! Sunny and warm today with the high temperatures well into the 70s! Now, the satellite image shows a low pressure off the Pacific Northwest Coast and will be edging eastward through the week with an increase in south winds later tomorrow and Wednesday. Our temperatures will increase with these south winds with our max into the low 80s!!! I can't rule out a risk of a thunderstorm, but should be isolated until the end of the week. Have an awesome Monday!
Good morning! Not surprised with the showers and the thunderstorms yesterday and today, but I am a little surprised with the pockets of heavier rain. As you can see from the satellite image below, it's a fairly narrow band, but it's likely to get a little boost from the weak system coming across Idaho and northeast Nevada. Sooooo, we'll have more showers and some thunderstorms throughout the day, but we should dry out later tonight through Monday. The high temperature today will make it into the low 60s, then next 70 tomorrow and mid 70s on Monday!
Good afternoon! Well, like I discussed yesterday, some moisture has made it into the area, and there area some showers over the Uintah mountains, and even some light showers pushing into Park City and scattered over northern and central Utah, mainly south of Salt Lake. I think we'll see more showers and thunderstorms tomorrow, then drying out some on Sunday and Monday. I don't think rainfall totals will be heavy, and so I'd probably continue to do what I wanted with an eye to the sky and keeping alert for any possible lightning in the area.
Good morning! Below is a satellite picture I don't show very often, but it's a water vapor image and shows the upper level moisture and weather features a little better than some of the other images. A piece of the low pressure is over southern Nevada and into southern California, and this system will be shifting into Arizona later today and tomorrow. You can see some moisture near the "Four" Corners region and we'll see some of that moisture make it into northern Utah tomorrow and Saturday resulting in scattered thunderstorms, but we dry out Sunday and Monday and temperatures will be fairly mild. The max temperatures today will be near 70, or into the low 70s, slightly cooler tomorrow through Sunday, but still into the upper 60s, then warming into the mid to upper 70s by Monday!
Good morning! As you can see from the satellite image, the low pressure is over Nevada this morning, but it'll move into Arizona over the next 48 hours. We could see a couple of thunderstorms over northern Utah today, but like I mentioned the other day, don't cancel anything, just keep an eye out, and the chance of measurable rain is very low. We could see a slight increase in moisture by Friday and Saturday, leading to a couple of more thunderstorms, but again, not widespread enough to changing any plans. All in all, not too bad of a pattern.
Good morning!! The satellite image shows a fair amount of cloudiness into Nevada and northern Utah, but most of it is at higher levels, so I still think we'll be dry and fairly warm today, but probably not as warm as the last couple. We should be about 8 to 10 degrees cooler tomorrow, as a weak front pushes a cooler air mass into northern Utah. The main upper level low pressure is off the Pacific Northwest Coast, and it just doesn't look all that impressive! We'll see a cooler air mass by Wednesday and Thursday and a chance of a couple of showers or a thunderstorm through mid week. I certainly wouldn't cancel anything, just be aware of the chance!
Good morning! We'll see a little high cloudiness today, but mainly lots of sunshine and warm temperatures! The area of low pressure over the eastern Pacific will be moving slowly eastward during the coming week with a scattering of showers and thunderstorms Tuesday through Thursday, and it'll be a little cooler with max temperatures closer to 60 or low 60s. So, let's enjoy the weekend, as it should be really nice!
Good morning! Well, quite a bit more high cloudiness moving into the West, so not as pretty as the last couple of days, but still warm! The low pressure off the West Coast will move slowly eastward, and like I mentioned yesterday, it may be until Tuesday before we begin to see some showers and thunderstorms. It'll also be cooler by then with max temperatures dropping back into the 50s to low 60s. So, enjoy the next couple of days with
