Good morning! What a difference a day makes in our weather! Yesterday, we were 20 degrees warmer and as soon as I finished this blog, I got my daily bike ride in before the winds really increased. I've been 33 degrees at my house this morning, but there were some 30 degree readings in the Snyderville Basin, but a little warmer up in Park City. We need to enjoy this brief cool air intrusion, as the extended outlook is looking hot. A fairly strong high pressure will push westward into the area from the middle of next week and will continue into July. The one thing I'm going to start looking at a little more is the possibility of moisture spreading northward through Arizona and into Utah. This start of this monsoon flow is typically defined by 3 consecutive days where the dew point temperature in Phoenix is 55 degrees or higher. By next Wednesday and on through the end of the month, the models indicate an increase in moisture from Mexico and into Arizona and we could be close to the start of the monsoon season and that would be a little earlier than normal, but I would love to see an increase in thunderstorms!! The summer solstice (astronomically speaking) is tonight at 11:04 PM MDT!!! Have an awesom
Good morning! The cold front at 7 AM is just to the west of the Salt Lake Valley and will continue eastward into our area by 9 or 10 AM and we'll some breezy west to northwest winds develop along with ushering in a cooler air mass. We hit 85 degrees yesterday with a couple of locations likely a tad warmer, but the humidity at one point yesterday was down to 5%!!! This front won't add much moisture, but it will cool the temperatures down over the next couple of days with the high reading tomorrow in the upper 60s to around 70. A lot of sunshine still
Good morning! Another sunny morning and we'll have a lot of those in the coming days! I absolutely love seeing it light before 6 AM, and I believe it was 5:30 AM this morning. The high temperature yesterday was between 80 and 85 degrees across the Snyderville Basin and up into Park City, and we should be at least mid to even upper 80s today. A weak cold front will move across the area tomorrow bringing a cooler air mass. In fact, we should be about 15 degrees cooler by Thursday than we will be today. I don't really see much of a chance of rain through the remainder of the month. We will see another low pressure by the 28th and 29th that could develop a couple of thunderstorms, but definitely a dry month. Enjoy the great outdoors, even with some wind expected today and tomorrow.
Good morning!! I'm back home after spending a week in Southern California! After a week away, and while it was an awesome vacation, it's awesome to be back in the mountains and see some grass!!! We'll see a warm southerly flow today and tomorrow, but an area of low pressure that is off the Pacific Northwest Coast this morning, will push a cold front across the area on Wednesday. We'll see our temperatures cool off quite a bit (10-15 degrees) by Thursday, but warm gradually through the coming weekend. We'll see a little wind, but the air mass will be dry and no rain is expected. Have some fun today, should be a nice weather day.
Good morning and Happy Father's Day! It's my last day in Southern California and looking forward to being back home in the mountains of Northern Utah. If nothing else, vacations help you appreciate what you have back home! It's been a great week with 5 days in Disneyland, to the baseball game yesterday and just spending time with my son and his family! Our weather pattern is fairly stable with low pressure off the Pacific Northwest Coast and high pressure over the Rockies. This is a pattern we'll see through the remainder of June, and we'll see the low pressure occasionally make a push to move inland, but will weaken and another piece of energy will strengthen the low pressure just off the West Coast. This is typically a dry, warm flow pattern for us. We'll be warm over the next couple of days, then a weak front will move across the area bringing a little cooler air mass by Wednesday and Thursday, but then we'll warm again next weekend! Have an awesome day!
Good morning!! Next phase of the vacation for me, and it's going to the Angels- Yankees baseball game today! I'm looking forward to it! Our weather through the end of June will be dominated by high pressure over the Rockies and western interior with low pressure along the West Coast. This is typically a warm, dry air flow and this should result in June ending up above normal temperature-wise and a dry month. So, enjoy the sunshine and warm temperatures.
Good morning! Day 5 for me and the family at Disneyland!!! We've kind of kept track of the number of steps made and in the first 4 days, we've been over 20,000 a day! Yes, the feet are a little sore! We had a cold front move across the area and the air mass is quite a bit cooler! We reached a low in the Snyderville Basin of 34 degrees! We should be between 65 and 70 degrees this afternoon, and that's about 10 degrees below normal. Enjoy the cool break, as we heat it back up this weekend and into early next week. The low pressure will remain over the Pacific Northwest or near the West Coast through the remainder of June, and while there will brief periods where it weakens, it'll be a fairly stable feature! I see very little in the way of precipitation through the month as well!
Good morning!!!! I took Monday off, but just totally forgot yesterday to do the blog! Too much fun with the family down at Disneyland! We were right around 90 on Monday, upper 70s to 80 yesterday, and we should be a little warmer today (low to mid 80s). Any thunderstorm activity is expected to be isolated, and I think this will be the case for the next couple of weeks. Our weather pattern is being driven by an area of low pressure along the West Coast. As one piece of energy exits the low pressure, we see a windy day, but as it exits the area we see some cooler temperatures and a break in the south winds. We have several of those pieces of energy over the next 10 to 14 days, but very little in the way of moisture!
Good morning! On a personal note, this date has been circled for a couple of months, as a family we're heading to Disneyland for a week, plus also catch a couple of baseball games. Hopefully the grandkids don't wear me out too much!!! I'll do the blog through the week, but it may not consistently be early in the morning. We were in the upper 70s yesterday, but should be in the mid 80s this afternoon and around 90 tomorrow. The low pressure near the West Coast will remain there and we'll see breezy south winds at times for the next couple of weeks. We'll see a couple of thunderstorms around from Tuesday through Thursday, but very little moisture will fall with these storms. All in all, this is what is great about living in the mountains!!
Good morning! Well, we were near 80 degrees yesterday, but should be a tad cooler today with a very weak front moving across the area. It'll still be sunny, but if you're doing some biking or running, you'll notice the west- northwest wind a little sooner (especially in the Jeremy Ranch, Pinebrook and Kimball Junction area. Like I mentioned yesterday, we're going to see an area of low pressure near the West Coast for much of the month, so we're going to see some days with breezy south winds, but typically for June, this is a dry flow. As we get into July and August, a similar pattern would result in more thunderstorms and precipitation. As it is, I see a chance of thunderstorms on Tuesday and possibly around the 17th and that's pretty much it for the first 3 weeks of June! Have a great day!
