Good morning! Now those were some pretty good thunderstorms last evening! The air mass remains quite moist and unstable over the area this morning, and should continue over us tomorrow. There are some light rain showers over northern Utah this morning, and these will increase through the afternoon and evening both today and tomorrow. I plan on getting a bike ride in today and tomorrow, but probably in the morning or early afternoon, but drier air is still expected to push into the area Sunday and Monday. So, the Miner's Day celebrations should be awesome!
Good morning! The air mass is quite a bit more moist this morning and there are more rain showers on the radar. The flow of moisture will continue through Saturday, so quite a bit of cloudiness coming and going with showers and a couple of thunderstorms likely. There's a weak weather system near Ely, Nevada this morning and this should enhance the showers and thunderstorms over us, but as is typical here in the summer, we'll see some breaks as well. We need the moisture, so any rain from the showers and thunderstorms is good! We'll dry the air mass out on Sunday and Monday with sunny skies
Good morning! I think we have a couple of fairly active weather days in store for us! The weather balloon went up this morning, and the moisture layer is a little deeper, and the air mass is a little more unstable. There are a couple of showers in the area this morning, and the satellite images show more moisture being drawn into the area because of an area of low pressure off to the west of us. This pattern will be with us through Saturday, and we'll see quite a few showers and some thunderstorms, especially later tomorrow through Saturday. We need the moisture, so let's hope we all see some rain! The air mass does dry and Sunday and Monday, so Miner's Day parade is still looking good!
Good morning! It's a beautiful start to the day, and today will be a carbon copy of yesterday! The convective temperature is in the upper 70s, so by around noon we should see clouds begin to develop. Then, a scattering of thunderstorms expected this afternoon and evening with our temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 80s. We'll see some breezy winds tomorrow with a system passing by mainly to our west and north, but still a chance of thunderstorms. One thing on the data this morning is a weak low pressure remaining to the west of us at the end of the week with an increase in thunderstorms Thursday and Friday. I'll keep an eye on it and keep you updated. Until then, enjoy the sunshine and all you can outside! Just a quick look at the holiday weekend shows the thunderstorms peaking on Saturday, then drier on Sunday and Miners Day!
Probably hard to tell from this picture, but this is taken off my back deck yesterday and I was trying to show the color showing on the mountain. You've probably already noticed driving through the area that the leaves are starting to show their color. In part, it's the shorter nights, but I also think it's due to the lack of moisture that we've experienced. That lack of moisture wasn't the case yesterday, as there were some fairly nice showers and thunderstorms through the evening. Again, the station in Thaynes Canyon at 9200 feet received a half an inch. The air mass remains fairly moist this morning, and we'll see a scattering of showers and thunderstorms over the next couple of days. In fact, I think there's a chance each day through the end of the week. It's looking like a little enhanced activity on Wednesday and Thursday.
I always love waking up to some showers and thunderstorms! Not that there were a lot, but nice to have a couple. The weather system moving across northern Utah has pushed most of the showers north of us by 8 AM and we'll see partly cloudy skies through the remainder of the morning, but should be dry. Now, as we push temperatures up into the low to mid 80s across the area this afternoon, we'll see more showers and thunderstorms develop. We should be able to do whatever we would like to outside through the week, we just need to dodge a thunderstorm or two. Temperatures will continue above normal, but the awesome benefit of living in the mountains, are the cool night and mornings!!! Have a great Sunday.
Good morning!! Wow, just an awesome start to the day with the sun coming up and the skies are clear! Okay, a little chilly, but we should be in the upper 50s to near 60 by 9 AM and into the mid 70s by noon. There's a thin layer of moisture at about 14,000 to 15,000 feet, but the air mass is too stable above that point for it to develop into anything. So, it should be a really nice day to get out and enjoy all that Park City has to offer. We will see a little increase in moisture tomorrow resulting in a chance of a couple of thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. I wouldn't cancel any outdoor plans, just be aware, especially later in the afternoon and evening that we could have a thunderstorm. We should dry out again on Monday and should be dry and warm Tuesday and Wednesday. Have a great day everyone!
Well, we made it through another week (almost anyway) and I'm looking out the window and it's sunny, and there's a little color showing up on the mountain. The low temperature so far this morning has been 43 degrees in the Snyderville Basin and the Park City golf course is 49, so definitely a little chilly. We should have a couple of really nice weather days with our temperatures near or a tad above normal. We'll see a little moisture return by Sunday and into early next week resulting in a slight chance of a thunderstorm, but overall, a lot of play time and BBQ time! Have fun and be safe!
Good morning! Yesterday was the definition of scattered showers and thunderstorms!! The air mass is still faily moist this morning and the early morning picture from Park City (taken by my son) shows some clouds and the moisture over the area. The picture of the Synderville Basin shows mainly clear skies, but the weather balloon still shows some moisture. We'll heat up this afternoon and still see some clouds and thunderstorms develop. Maybe not quite the coverage, but still enough that we'll have to dodge these this afternoon and evening. A drier air mass will move into the area tomorrow and Saturday! Have a great day!!
The air mass has moistened up nicely in the last 24 hours, and the rain gauge in Thaynes Canyon around 9200 feet reported some rain overnight, but pretty scattered amounts so far. The weather balloon data this morning shows a fairly unstable air mass, so we just need a mechanism to produce the rain and thunderstorms. There are a couple of things we look for as a trigger, but our best chance today is for a little heating, and we'll see the showers and storms increase. Once we get to around 70 or in the low 70s in Park City, we'll see more cloud development and an increasing chance of showers and thunderstorms. So, I think we'll see an increase later this morning through the afternoon, and the chance will continue tomorrow before we begin to see a drier air mass move into the area Friday through the weekend. Have a great day and try to stay dry!
