Good morning! There's still a lot of cloudiness hanging around northern Utah, so we'll start the day off with mostly cloudy skies, but should see some breaks. Nothing is showing up on the radar, but that doesn't mean we couldn't see some flurries! A weak system will clip us tonight, but I believe most of the precipitation will be east of us. A brief break between systems and we should be near 60 on Saturday, but the next cold front will move across the area on Sunday and will usher in a much colder air mass. We should be back into the 30s for a high on Monday!
Good morning! Still some cloudiness and snow showers over the area this morning, but these snow showers are developing over the Great Salt Lake and moving across the area. Looking like these decrease by around 9 or 10 AM, then a scattering of snow showers through the afternoon. Accumulations should be less than an inch across much of the Snyderville Basin and up into town. A system will clip us later tomorrow night and Friday morning, and while we could see a couple of flurries, I'm still thinking the little ones can be dry for trick or treating, but a little chilly. A nice break on Saturday with some south winds and this will push temperatures pretty close to 60 degrees. It's short lived though, as a cold front moves across the area early Sunday morning and the air behind this front is pretty cold! At this time, this system does not seem to be a big snow producer!
Good morning!!! The storm has behaved, and we saw the snow level lower to the Basin last evening with an inch or two on the grassy areas, but near 7 inches at the 9,000 foot level and nearly 8 inches at the 10,000 foot level. Still a fairly moist flow today and tomorrow with the chance of snow showers continuing over the area. I would say we'll see some breaks, especially this afternoon, but we should see one more period of organized snow showers later tomorrow morning and into the afternoon. We'll get clipped by a weak system Thursday night, but any accumulating snow is likely to be up higher in the mountains. The next cold front arrives on Sunday, but if this system can generate some moisture, it'll be later Sunday and into Monday. All in all, looking pretty cool and unsettled the first couple of weeks of November! Get the skis ready, it won't be long now!
Good morning! The satellite image shows the storm system over Nevada and there's an area of clouds increasing from St George toward Salt Lake City. Showers will be on the increase with the snow level this morning and early afternoon hanging around 9000 feet, then down to 7500 feet at 6 PM and dropping below 6000 feet this evening. This means it's take until the evening before the snow level makes it down to the Snyderville Basin level. A cooler, unsettled flow pattern over us tomorrow and into the Wednesday meaning we could see some snow showers, but accumulations are looking on the light side. A little break at the end of the week and into the weekend, meaning Halloween is looking dry, but cool.
Good morning! Should be a fairly nice weather day, but that area of clouds over British Columbia is an area of low pressure that will drop southward today and tonight and be over northern Nevada by 6 AM tomorrow morning. A strong surface low pressure will be over east central Nevada, and will increase our winds and a cold front will move across the area later tomorrow and tomorrow night. Snow levels will start out fairly high, but drop with the front moving across the area. This would be a potential heavy snow situation with the wave of low pressure moving from east central Nevada into northern Utah, and I think accumulations above around 7000 to 7500 feet could be heavy, just not quite cold enough for us. We'll see a couple of inches of snow through Wednesday afternoon, but don't think it'll stick on the pavement.
Good morning! Another nice weather day, and overall a nice weekend weather-wise, but there are changes happening! The system over northern British Columbia will be dropping southward into the Pacific Northwest tomorrow, then into Nevada on Monday. It'll take until later Monday or early Tuesday for the cold front to move across our area, and the snow levels will start out up about 9000 feet, but will lower to all of the Snyderville Basin! I'd say accumulations down in the Basin will be in the 1 to 3 inch range, but we'll need to keep an eye on it, there is a little bit of an upside on this system. We should be dry, but chilly on Halloween! Have an awesome Saturday!
Good morning/ afternoon! As we've talked about all week, there's some changes coming to the weather pattern and our awesome week of fall weather will come to end early next week. A much colder air mass will drop southward from western Canada on Monday and Tuesday with our max temperatures about 20 to 25 degrees colder, and we should squeeze out some snow! Once this system exits the area, should see a couple of more with a weaker front due into the area around the 4th or 5th of November, and another by the 9th or 10th of the month. So, enjoy the next couple of days, a little change in on the way!
Good morning! Another cool start in the Basin, but there's a fairly strong temperature inversion with the lowest all night, up around 9,000 feet, being 40 degrees! This means with some sunshine and a little mixing of the air mass, and we should be all the way back up to around 60 or even in the low to mid 60s. The nice weather will continue through the weekend. The high pressure will begin to collapse later Sunday with the cold front moving across the area on Monday! We'll see a little snow with this system, probably on the order of 1 to 3 inches across the Basin and more higher up at the resorts, but I know my friends at Park City Mountain Resort are ready to get the snowmaking system cranking, and make the most of about 3 days of colder temperatures. Still looking dry here on Halloween, but pretty chilly. One thing I'm watching to possibly help provide a little more moisture is that system that is on the satellite image just off the California Coast. It has happened in the past where you get some help from an outside source to help moisten up the air m
Good afternoon! Sorry for the delay, but I spent most of the morning getting my computer up to speed. You see, about 10 days ago, I spilled water on it and well, it didn't survive and need major work! The good news is that it's back online and I'm back up and running! Let's chat about the weather for a second, as that's what most of you are reading this blog and not so much for my awesome personality!!! High pressure will remain in control of our weather into the weekend, BUT some big changes in the flow pattern are coming. On the satellite image below, the storm system out by the Aleutian Islands is the system that will move into northern British Columbia, then move southward into our area later Monday and Tuesday ushering in a much colder air mass and some snow! One of the models would linger the cold to Halloween, but we should be dry on Halloween!! I'll keep you updated, enjoy the afternoon!
Good morning! I've talked about high pressure a lot, and no changes in the pattern through the weekend! We were 58 degrees for a high in the Snyderville Basin yesterday, and very similar over the next couple of days. We were 60 degrees in town, and this all adds up to awesome fall weather this week. Now, the map below is valid for next Monday at Noon, and this is a 700 mb map, and 700 mb is approximately 9500 foot elevation. Moisture has increased, and you can see the 0'C isotherm is way down in southern Utah. This all adds up to a chance of snow, and much colder early next week. This will be something I talk about in the next couple of days, but at the moment we have some great fall weather, then a turn to a little more like winter weather! We need the snow, and colder temperatures and I'm sure my friends at Park City Mountain Resort will just on this opportunity.
