Good morning! High pressure and the heat will continue for the next couple of days, but an interesting setup by mid week, as the high pressure shifts back eastward. There's a fairly significant amount of moisture is over northern Mexico, so we should see a nice surge northward by Wednesday and Thursday. So, a couple of more hot, dry weather days and then an increase in the clouds, thunderstorms and some cooler temperatures.
Good morning! It's a little bit of a chilly start with temperatures in the Snyderville Basin around 47 degrees, so get out there and enjoy it, as we'll heat up fast and be in the low 90s this afternoon. The heat will continue through Tuesday, and each day will be similar, except a little hotter on Monday and Tuesday. By Wednesday afternoon, we'll see the air mass moisten up and an increase in showers and thunderstorms and this will continue through the end of the week. This will also result in our temperatures cooling off a little, so it'll be nice after this period of heat
Good morning! High pressure and hot!! That's the main message for the next 5 or 6 days where the temperatures will climb to around 90 or the low 90s through next Wednesday, but then we'll see another surge of moisture later Wednesday through next weekend. Get out and enjoy the great weather and stay cool!
Good morning! Well, we are right on the edge of a drier air mass with a little more of a transition day with the air mass drier over the area tomorrow. Enough moisture for a couple of thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, but should be less than the last couple of days. In fact, we're back to hot and dry through next Tuesday with the Salt Lake airport likely to see a string of 100 days again and we'll be around 90, or a couple of areas will be low 90s. Like all the previous times, the heat will draw some moisture northward into the area and I expect thunderstorms will increase next Wednesday through the end of the week! Have an awesome day and stay cool!
Good morning! Well, I spent 2 days in the hospital with an infection induced pancreatitis and I can tell you, I'd rather be sitting here doing the blog than hooked up to machines in a hospital! We got the surge of moisture we talked about over the weekend, and now we're in the slow drying process. I believe there will be more storms developing this afternoon and tomorrow, but should be more isolated tomorrow and Friday through the weekend is looking hot and dry. In fact, the high pressure moves back into the West through the middle of next week, and then we'll see another period of enhanced thunderstorms with the moisture returning to the area.
Good morning! Definitely a little drier air mass over the area with considerable drying above 16,000 feet and a conditionally unstable air mass. We need a trigger to help the thunderstorms develop and all I see is the heating of the day. This should focus any development near the higher terrain and mainly isolated, plus with the drying aloft there's not any moisture to sustain the convection. I think tomorrow will be similar today, so for most areas, a 2 day break in the thunderstorms, but the moisture returns later Monday night and Tuesday with a scattering of thunderstorms each day through the end of the week.
Good morning! Typically, all I talk about on these blogs is weather related. This morning, I'm going to take a moment to talk about something that's equally important. I'm presently fighting a nasty abdominal infection, and it has slowed me down significantly. Makes you stop and appreciate where we live and enjoy all of our surroundings. I'll get past this and hopefully soon, so I can get back out there on my bike or do some hiking and really enjoy the mountains! The air mass is still fairly moist and unstable with a scattering of showers and thunderstorms through this afternoon and evening. We'll see a decrease in the moisture layer tomorrow and Monday, so any thunderstorm development should be more isolated. The heat returns, and so will the moisture Tuesday through Friday, and by Thursday and Friday we could see more significant thunderstorms. Have a great day, be safe and enjoy what you do have!
Good morning! No doubt that the air mass is really moist, as there's a band of light rain moving across the area. This band will shift east a little through the morning and afternoon, and we're likely to get a break in the rainfall, but more showers and thunderstorms are expected later this afternoon. I think tomorrow will also be fairly active across northern Utah, then a little decrease in the moisture layer Sunday and Monday. The heat will try to move back into the area, but the models keep enough moisture over us for a chance of thunderstorms each afternoon and evening through next week.
Good morning! The air mass has moistened up above the 15,000 foot level, but the air mass is fairly stable. We'll see the air mass become more unstable later today through tomorrow, so we'll see an increase in the thunderstorm coverage. The increase in cloudiness will help keep the temperatures lower than yesterday! The Salt Lake airport hit 104 yesterday and that tied the record high for the date set in 1973. The chance of thunderstorms continues through the weekend, but some decrease in moisture Sunday through Wednesday with our temperatures warming back up! The heat should draw more moisture northward by the end of the week!
Good morning! The weather ballon data definitely shows a warmer air mass over us this morning and the Salt Lake airport should be around 103 degrees, and that will put us in the low to mid 90s! A fairly strong surge of moisture is just around the corner and the satellite pictures already showing the moisture pushing into southern Nevada and will spread into northern Utah tomorrow through the weekend. The models are a little slower in bringing the moisture into the area, but I expect enough moisture for at least a couple of thunderstorms by Thursday afternoon and evening, then a fairly big jump in the activity Friday and Saturday. This will hold temperatures down, but should also bring us some additional rainfall! Once the moisture moves into the area, the computer models are very reluctant in drying us out, so I think we'll end up with above normal rainfall for July, but if you've followed the blog, you know that we've expected this type of pattern. Have a good day and stay cool.
