Good morning! Well, not too spooky of a forecast or discussion today. In fact, we'll see above normal temperatures and quite a bit of sunshine. The area of low pressure that has been off the West Coast all week is shifting eastward, but will weaken considerably and I'm not big on this being much of a precipitation producer. A little cooler air mass and some clouds, but by the weekend, high pressure will return to the area! I believe we'll see some changes in the flow pattern at the end of the week, and this should allow for cool, unsettled weather to return to the area! All in all, a fairly quiet pattern in the short term, but that should change at the end of
I just want to say that my heart goes out to al that are being impacted by the hurricane/ intense low pressure back east. I have friends, family and people I've worked with through the years being impacted. I know they'll come through it okay, but it's been bad. Our weather is much more tranquil, and in fact, down right noce this week with a couple of more days with sunny skies and warm temperatures. A weakening system will move across the area on Friday bringing a cooler air mass along with a chance of a couple of rain and snow showers. The weekend is looking nice, but still looking like a stronger cold front next week!
A nice quiet start to the week with high pressure over much of the West, as Hurricane Sandy moves into the Mid Atlantic region tonight. No doubt, a very dangerous storm system! We'll see a weak area of low pressure move into the West Thursday, and reach us on Friday bringing mainly a cooler air mass, but also a slight chance of a rain or snow shower. It continues to look like a stronger front will move across us on the 8th or 9th bringing a chance of snow and a shot of colder air! Enjoy the next couple of days of nice fall weather in the mountains!
Good morning! A little cloudiness this morning and milder. As the high pressure strengthens over the next couple of days, the jet stream will push further north and we'll see more sunshine and milder temperatures. I know, I know it's a boring pattern and it'll be the end of the week before we see even a weak system move across the area. Believe me, more active weather weeks will come to the area, but for now, we'll let Hurricane Sandy and the merging with the low pressure take center stage for the next couple of days.
Well, a decent break in the pattern, as the atmosphere develops an intense storm system over the Mid Atlantic region by Monday and Tuesday, then it lingers for much of the week. We'll see temperatures warm steadily through Wednesday with the max temperatures in the Park City area of 55 to 60 degrees by Monday through Wednesday. We'll see a weak system move across the area later Friday and Saturday next weekend, then a potentially stronger system during the week of the 5th of November. The situation back east very, very serious and hopefully for those who have friends and family back there, they stay safe.
As is typical with these storms and a fresh snowpack, it was cold this morning!! I had 13 at my house, but a number of spots in the Snyderville Basin were 11 degrees and in town it 11 at the Park City golf course and 13 at the base of Park City Mountain Resort. Now we transition back into a fairly quiet weather pattern, and one of the reasons why is because Hurricane Sandy and our old low pressure come together over the Mid Atlantic states and the Northeast. This system has a lot of potential energy, and will result in a lot of damage. For us, the deep low pressure basically slows the pattern up significantly and we'll see higher pressure and some milder temperatures return for much of next week. Our next possible system is around the 2nd of November, but is looking weak with a stronger system possible the week of the 5th!
Good morning! I don't remember a storm like this last year!!! As of 8 AM, nice band of snow moving across the area and a good 2 or 3 inches since about 5 AM, and about 5 inches new snow in that time at the top of Park City Mountain Resort! We're going to see some break throughout the day, but the really cold air coming across the relatively warm Great Salt Lake should continue the occasional snow or snow showers through the afternoon with additional accumulations of 1 to 3 inches. We begin to dry the air mass out tomorrow and a drier, milder westerly flow through the weekend and early next week. So, I don't believe this is the snow that stays on the ground all winter!!! This is great for the ski resorts and the local economy, as it gets people excited for the ski season! Enjoy and be safe!
Good morning! Love the snow (especially when I forecast it), but the first snow of the season and an early snow, gets you excited! We'll see this first system exit the area by around noon, and we'll see a break in the pattern through this afternoon and early evening. The last piece of this low pressure will move across the region later tonight and tomorrow bringing another period of snow with a couple of inches likely. The one wild card is the cold air flowing over the relatively warm water of the Great Salt Lake bringing some lake enhanced snowfall and Lake Effect. The lake enhancement has more of an impact for us while the Lake Effect typically can't make it over the mountains to reach us in Park City. Conditions will improve Friday right on through the weekend with the temperatures warming back into the mid 50s by Sunday. For now, get out and enjoy the fresh snow!
Good morning!! Well, the snow level has been dropping through the night, and it's snowing in town, but a cold rain (34 degrees) at my house in Pinebrook. We've seen between 2 and 3 inches of snow above 9000 feet, and more to come over the next couple of days. We should see a little break later this morning and into the afternoon, as we'll be between weather systems. The next system will arrive later today and tonight with an even colder air mass, and one more system tomorrow night into Thursday. It's still a little early for this to be the snowfall that stays around all winter, except for maybe the higher elevations. The air mass will be cold enough for the snowmaking system to be turned on at Park City Mountain Resort, and that's good news! We dry out and warm up some through the weekend.
Well, we've talked about this storm system for a while and the satellite images show a very impressive area of low pressure just off the West Coast. We'll see a series of systems move across the area over the next couple of days with the air mass getting cooler and cooler. In fact, the snow level should be down into the Snyderville Basin tomorrow morning, and by Wednesday and Thursday, it'll reach down into the Salt Lake Valley. It's not totally unusual to see storms like this in October, but might be a tad early to help the ski resorts a lot, but the moisture helps and the locations above 9000 feet should see a couple of feet of snow!
