Good morning and we've made it to the last day of September! A little bit of a complicated pattern, and while we'll see some clouds today and tomorrow, we should be dry. Most of the energy with the first low pressure will stay north of us, but I do believe we'll see a fairly strong cold front move across the area later Wednesday and Thursday, ushering a much cooler air mass and yes, another chance of snow. I would say we're dry through the day on Wednesday, then an increasing chance later Wednesday night and into the likely category on Thursday. The high temperatures today and tomorrow will be in the mid to upper 60s, then low to mid 60s on Wednesday and probably only in the 40s on Thursday and Friday! We'll take another look at it again tomorrow morning, but for now,
Good morning! A little warmer start to the day over the entire area, but still a chilly 32 degrees at my place. We'll see a lot of clouds move across the area today, and I can't completely rule out a chance of a shower, but if we see anything, it should be really light. I think the best chance of showers will come later Wednesday and Thursday with the air mass cold enough on Thursday to once again produce snow showers over the area. We should see max temperatures today, tomorrow and Tuesday into the mid or even upper 60s!
Good Saturday Morning! We cleared out and it's the first really hard frost in the area with temperatures at 7 AM between 23 and 26 degrees from Pinebrook and Jeremy Ranch to Silver Creek and up into Park City. Now, I believe we'll warm up fairly rapidly and our max temperature today should be in the upper 50s to near 60 degrees and in the upper 60s tomorrow. The satellite image below shows a lot of cloudiness into the Pacific Northwest and some of the energy with this system from an old typhoon that was absorbed into the flow. We'll see high clouds through the weekend, but it'll take until mid week for the next cold front moves into the area. All in all, a nice weekend over the area and warmer! Have an awesome Saturday!
Good morning! The area of low pressure aloft is over the area and we'll see some rain and snow showers throughout the day, but probably some breaks as well. This low pressure will exit the area tonight and tomorrow with the temperatures tomorrow morning in the 20s throughout the Snyderville Basin, and most areas in the mid 20s. We will see a fairly significant warmup through the weekend with max temperatures into the mid to upper 50s tomorrow and mid to upper 60s with some south wind on Sunday. The system moving into the Pacific Northwest on the satellite image will clip the area, but stay north of us. The mass of clouds you see on the upper right corner of the Satellite image, in the Gulf of Alaska will be part of the next system that moves across the area later Wednesday and Thursday with more rain and again, snow levels dropping down into the Snyderville Basin!!!
Good morning! We all saw it yesterday, some SNOW!!! For those wanting to hang on to the sunny, warm temperatures, the bad news is that the air mass will remain much cooler than normal with some additional snow today and tomorrow. The coldest part of the air mass will move into the region tonight and tomorrow morning, and we could see a little snow stick on the grass! The temperatures this morning from Jeremy Ranch and Pinebrook throughout the Snyderville Basin and up into Park City is in the mid 30s with readings in the 20s above the 8000 foot level. As you can see from the satellite image, considerable cloudiness remains over Utah, Nevada and Idaho. So, we don't have a great deal of upside on the temperature today and we'll see more rain and snow showers turning to mainly snow later tonight and tomorrow morning. This low pressure will move east of the area this weekend and we should see some really nice fall weather returning with sunny skies and temperatures on Sunday back in the middle 60s.
Good morning! The satellite image below was taken at 6 AM with the fronts superimposed on top. The winds shifted to the northwest at the Salt Lake Airport around midnight and the front is just now to Parley's Summit. So, not exactly breaking any speed records and one of the reasons it isn't moving fast, is the fact that the upper level support is lagging a little behind the front. We'll see showers increase later this morning and early afternoon, then a fairly solid area of rain (snow level to 8500 feet by late afternoon). We're right around 57 degrees as I write this, and this should be close to the high for the day, and should drop this afternoon as the colder air mass arrives. A much colder air mass will be over us tomorrow and Friday, and yes we could see a little snow or snow shower activity. I don't see our max temperatures out of the 40s tomorrow or Friday. The weekend will see improvement and temperatures here in Park City will be between 60 and 65 degrees by Sunday for a high.
Good morning! Even after a chilly start this morning, we'll see temperatures warm fairly quickly and this will be the warmest day of the week. We should make it into the mid 70s with increasing southerly winds this afternoon and evening. The reason for the wind is the approach of a cold front that arrives tomorrow morning! This system has a very cool air mass with it and the snow levels will lower to around 7500 feet later tomorrow, then even lower on Thursday and Friday, so that we'll see a little snow in the Snyderville Basin. I don't think there's enough moisture/ lift for accumulating snow, but for sure, we'll see some fall. Our max temperatures from the Snyderville Basin up into town probably won't get out of the 40s on Thursday and Friday, but we'll see readings make it back up to around 60 on Sunday!!
Good morning! One system is exiting the region, and you can see it over central and eastern Colorado! A second system is moving southeastward from the Gulf of Alaska and into the Pacific Northwest. This second system is quite a bit colder than the first system with the cold front into northern Utah Wednesday morning, and we'll end the week well below normal with our temperatures. We'll see some showers on Wednesday with the snow level down to maybe the 7500 to 8000 foot level, then could see some rain and snow mixed on Thursday all the way down into the Snyderville Basin. I don't expect any accumulations at this time, but definitely a little excitement. The air mass will dry out and warm a little by next weekend, and we still have some nice fall weather as we head into October! Have an awesome Monday.
Good morning! Astronomically, fall begins at 2:44 PM here in Utah today, BUT to a meteorologist, September 1st was the start of fall. The first of two systems will move across the area today bringing a cooler air mass, a chance of showers and a shift to west- northwest winds. The radar at 8 AM does show some light rain showers moving across Park City and into the Snyderville Basin. I still believe rainfall amounts will be less than a quarter of an inch with this first system. As you can tell from the satellite image below, there's a system in the Gulf of Alaska that will move into the region later Tuesday and Wednesday. This system is definitely much colder, and the overnight models will bring the snow levels down close to the level of the Snyderville Basin later Wednesday. Below normal temperatures will continue through the end of the week, but a nice break in the pattern with warmer temperatures during the week of September 30th. It will be interesting to see how the pattern adjusts to a typhoon that is moving into the Hong Kong area this morning and is absorbed into the flow pattern. Have an awesome Sunday, and GO UTES!
Good morning! The satellite image below tells the story for the weekend! A beautiful sunny morning over northern Utah, but as the cold front approaches, we'll see south winds increasing. The front will be moving across northern Utah tomorrow morning (fairly early) bringing a chance of showers or a thunderstorm and ushering in a cooler air mass. Rainfall amounts should be less than a quarter of an inch, and snow levels with this first system are likely to remain around 9,000 feet or a little higher. A second system will move into the area late Tuesday night and Wednesday with better moisture, lift and a colder air mass with snow levels likely down to around 7500 or 8,000 feet. Behind this system, we'll see the below normal temperatures through the end of the week with a hard frost likely over the Snyderville Basin and even below freezing and into the upper 20s in town. No worries everyone, as I still see some nice fall weather and even some warmer than normal temperatures as we begin October.
