Good morning! We'll see a weather system move across northern Utah today and tomorrow that'll bring a lot of cloudiness and mainly some light rain showers, could be a thunderstorm or two around this afternoon and evening. Any chance of showers tomorrow will be early, then the rest of the day and Monday are looking nice, but a little on the cool side with the max temperatures both days between 65 and 70. Higher pressure will be over us through much of the coming week with the next low pressure into the Pacific Northwest, and we'll see temperatures warming back close to 80 for high temperatures by Wednesday through Friday.
Good morning! We're just about to the long weekend break, and we'll see a cold front move across the area later tomorrow. In advance of this front, we should see our temperatures climb into the low 80s, but there's also a slight chance of a thunderstorm this afternoon and evening. There's also a chance of showers and a couple of thunderstorms later tomorrow and into early Sunday. Overall though, I wouldn't adjust my plans on anything, just know we'll turn a little cooler and there could be a couple of showers around. I want to take a moment and talk about the image below this discussion. This is the precipitation over the last 60 days, and you can see, we've be on the moist side, but California (other than the Sierra's) has been dry. This is fairly typical with the monsoon flow from Mexico up through Arizona and into Utah, BUT we've seen heavier precipitation over us than in most years. The main reason is that we've seen more low pressure systems move into the Pacific Northwest, then as the enter the Great Basin, there's more moisture to work with and thus the increase in rain and thunderstorms. Typically we don't see as much energy from these low pressures move into the West, but that's the reason we're fairly wet and California is on the dry side (still). Have an awesome Friday!
Good morning! A chilly start to the day, but it should be a really nice weather day in the mountains! The satellite image shows the system leaving the area, and the next system in the Gulf of Alaska. One thing to keep an eye on is the ex hurricane Marie, it's a tropical storm now and will weaken further today and tomorrow. It's possible a little of the moisture from this system will juice up the cold front moving across the area this weekend. At this time, it's looking like a couple of showers later Saturday and a cooler air mass.
Good morning! The moisture returned last night like we talked about, and there were some decent thunderstorms, and a nice shot of rain (between a half an inch and three quarters of an inch) between 11 PM and 1 AM. An area of low pressure is settling into the Great Basin today and we'll see some more showers and thunderstorms, but these should be more scattered through the day. I believe a bigger increase in the activity will come tomorrow and Wednesday with the max temperatures on Wednesday likely to be in the 60s. The good news is we dry out Thursday and the drier and warmer weather should last through Saturday.
Good morning! It is a chilly start in the Snyderville Basin with temperatures in the mid 30s!!! We'll see clouds build up this afternoon and evening with a couple of thunderstorms returning, and a weak area of low pressure off to our west will keep the chance of showers and thunderstorms over us through Tuesday, while I think we'll see some more rain, I don't feel like the coverage ever gets large enough to have more than a couple of periods of rain and more breaks. We dry out Wednesday and continue dry through the end of the week! We'll need to take a closer look at next weekend as we progress through the week, but another low pressure moves into the West and it could be on the moist side! Have an awesome Sunday!
Good morning! That was an awesome storm system with between three quarters of an inch and inch of rain through early this morning, and yes even a little snow on the peaks. By the way, I've read other posts hoping that they hope this is a sign of the winter season to come. Unfortunately, there is very little correlation between the two. I do believe it'll be better than the last 2 winters though, but the more significant part is the awesome moisture falling over the area! We should see mostly sunny skies the rest of the day, there could see an isolated shower, but overall it should be nice, but cool. Another weather system will bring a chance of showers and thundershowers tomorrow evening through Tuesday. Nice weather is expected Wednesday through Friday!
Good morning everyone! An unseasonably cool low pressure, over the Pacific Northwest, will strengthen a cold front that is just northwest of Utah this morning. I love weather like this, and we need the water too!!! The chance of showers and thunderstorms will increase this afternoon and evening, and more like mid afternoon on through tomorrow morning. The air mass will be very unstable and cooling through tomorrow morning. The moist air mass that's in place will provide the best environment for this cold front to generate some generous precipitation amounts. The good news is that Sunday is looking really nice, and while chilly in the morning, it'll warm up and be sunny through the afternoon. One more system will move across the area later Monday and into Tuesday bringing another chance of showers and thunderstorms, then a nice break from Wednesday through Friday of next week!
Good morning! Awesome rainfall amounts in the last 24 hours, and still a chance of a couple of showers this morning (prior to 10) and more showers and thunderstorms possible later this afternoon and evening. In fact, there's a chance of showers and thunderstorms each day through Saturday with a couple of periods where I believe the coverage will be enough to put the chance of precipitation into the likely category from later Friday into Saturday. We'll dry out and have good weather Sunday and Monday!
Good morning, and as expected the moisture has moved back into the area and there's a fairly large area of rain over us and down into Salt Lake City. The moisture will continue to flow into the area through the day, and our high temperatures will struggle to around 70. I love this weather, and if you've lived here for a while, then you know, there are years where it's really dry and hot. The moisture layer gradually decreases over the next couple of days, but there's a chance of showers and thunderstorms through Friday. The weekend is looking good with any thunderstorm activity being isolated, and max temperatures will be between 75 and 80.
Good morning! I took the weekend off from doing the blog and spent some awesome time with the family, as the weather was outstanding! I did get a bike ride in on Saturday and that was perfect! As you can see from the satellite image below, there are some clouds across northern Utah, and a couple of light showers. In fact, I would think most of the raindrops this morning are evaporating before hitting the ground, and this is called virga! Now, the moisture layer will increase through the afternoon and into tomorrow, so the chance of measurable rain will be on the increase, and this will also hold out temperatures down. In fact, we'll certainly stay in the 70s tomorrow and could be low 70s. While I believe the peak in the thunderstorm activity will be tomorrow, there's a chance just about each day through the end of the week. Have an awesome Monday!
