Good morning! As you can tell from the satellite pictures, we should have a lot of sunshine over the area today. Our temperatures will be a little below normal, but as the week goes on, we'll see our temperatures climb above normal and just enough moisture for a couple of thunderstorms Thursday and Friday afternoon. By Thursday and Friday, our max temperatures will be into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. Have an awesome time outside today!
Good morning! Well, after out brief brief into spring-like weather, high pressure will strengthen over the area this coming week with temperatures at the end of the week well into the 80s to near 90. Initially, moisture is pretty spotty, but the monsoon flow will increase between the 5th and 10th of July. It doesn't look like a huge surge of moisture, but at least a couple of thunderstorms in the afternoons. For us this weekend, we should have a nicer weather pattern with warmer temperatures, but the max today and tomorrow will be in the mid to upper 70s, after a cool start in the mornings.
Good afternoon! If you've followed the blog over the last couple of days, then you were expecting the showers and thunderstorms that moved across the area later yesterday and again today. It's kind of nice to have some rain at the end of June, certainly not typical! We'll dry out the air mass tonight and that will continue through the weekend and into early next week. So, it should be a great weekend weather-wise! High pressure does strengthen near the "Four Corners" region and that is typical for this time of year, so I can tell you that we'll be a lot warm this time next week! Just for example, we'll be upper 80s to near 90 for a high next Thursday and Friday here in Park City, as opposed to the mid 50s on my thermometer right now!
Good morning! The cold front has moved into the area early this morning, as an unseasonably cool area of low pressure moves across the Pacific Northwest and northern Intermountain region. We'll see showers and thunderstorms increase through the day, and likely return tomorrow. Temperatures yesterday reached into the low to mid 80s from Park City and into the Snyderville Basin. We were 70 early this morning, and that might just be the high for the day, and we'll be in the upper 60s to near 70 tomorrow. For those of you that love the heat, we'll be back into the 80s again by next Tuesday and Wednesday. A drier air mass will move into the area this weekend, and it'll be with us through Tuesday!
Good afternoon! Well, you can see on the satellite image that our next system is the area of cloudiness over Oregon and down off the northern California Coast. This system will move into Utah tomorrow, and bring a much cooler air mass to the Park City and Snyderville Basin area. We'll see readings once again into the low 80s, possibly mid 80s this afternoon, but a good 10 degrees cooler tomorrow, then another 5 degrees or so cooler on Friday. We'll see showers and thunderstorms in the area tomorrow, and possibly lingering into Friday, but more scattered on Friday. Rainfall amounts should remain on the light side, but still enough that we may need some adjustment to outdoor activities (possibly only briefly). Looking out into early July, still looking like the monsoon flow will begin to show up, so that should add a little moisture to the air mass, and this year's monsoon flow should produce some decent thunderstorms!
Good afternoon! I've been absent from the blog a little lately and one is because the pattern isn't the most exciting, but the more important reason is because I've been watching the grandkids (9 years old, 7 years old and 3 months old on Thursday), so it keeps me busy!!! There are a couple of weak weather systems moving across the area through the coming weekend with one today, and we're seeing a spike in temperatures today and should peak in the low 80s. A second system will move across the area later Thursday and into Friday, and this system will have a better chance of producing a couple of thunderstorms and will cool our temperatures down to near 70 on Friday. We'll have to wait until the monsoon develops in July until we get some thunderstorms that produce more rain. For now, enjoy the afternoon!
Good morning! Hope everyone is doing awesome! As you can see from the satellite image we have some clouds moving across the area today, but these should be mainly high clouds. All in all, we're in a dry, warm air flow through the coming week. We should be around 80 degrees for a high today, and that's quite the change from what we saw on Tuesday! We're still between about 2 and 4 weeks away from seeing the monsoon flow developing, but should be a fairly active summer with this flow coming up from Mexico. Have an awesome Friday!
Good afternoon! The satellite image is showing a fairly impressive low pressure over the interior of the West with a solid band of clouds and rain into northern Utah. It'll be a wet afternoon, and the air mass is really cool with the max of 47 degrees so far and that may be it for the day. Snow level will lower to around 8000 feet this afternoon, and we're likely to see some freezing temperatures either tomorrow morning or possibly Thursday morning. Once this system exits the area, we'll dry out and warm up with readings near or slightly above normal by this weekend and into next week.
Good morning/ afternoon! The satellite images tells a lot this morning with extensive cloudiness over the Great Basin and Intermountain region, as an unseasonably strong low pressure develops over the region. The air mass over the Pacific Northwest is quite cool, and we'll see temperatures well below normal tomorrow and Wednesday with readings tomorrow likely in the 50s for a max temperature. We'll see some showers and thunderstorms increase during the latter part of the afternoon and evening, then more widespread tomorrow. This low pressure exits the area Thursday and we're dry and much warmer through the weekend with the high temperature around 80, or possibly low 80s!
Good morning! Well, I'm back from my trips and glad to be back. It was extremely busy, but some good times in there as well. As you can tell from the satellite image below, there's considerable cloudiness over the West, and we'll see another unseasonably strong low pressure move into the Great Basin over the next couple of days. We'll also see some showers and thunderstorms, especially by Tuesday and into Wednesday, but can't rule out a brief shower or thunderstorm later this evening and again tomorrow. Once this system exits the area, we should see higher pressure and warmer temperatures for the remainder of June. Happy Father's Day to all the dad's and have an awesome Sunday!
