Good morning! The flow pattern is in the process of changing with the system over eastern Alaska and Northwest Territories starting to head southward. We will see a little cloudiness from a weak system later tonight and tomorrow, but other than a chance of flurries across the upper portion of the mountains, it should be dry. The cold front will be into northern Utah late Monday night/ early Tuesday morning bringing a period of snow, gusty winds and ushering in a much colder air mass. Snow accumulations on Tuesday are expected to be in the 3 to 6 inch range across the Basin and more from the town on up to the top of the resorts. The air mass following this system is much colder with max temperatures by Thursday and Friday in the teens to low 20s, but the low temperatures by Friday morning are likely to be below zero!
Good morning! We've had some really awesome weather this week, but I'm ready for a change! We'll see a system drop southward into the Pacific Northwest by Monday, then continue southeastward into our area later Tuesday and Wednesday. No, there's a fairly large spread in timing between the models, so this is something I'll have to refine as we get closer. We'll go through a period of snow when the system moves across the area with the consensus being around a half an inch liquid, so probably in the range of 4 to 7 inches with a much colder air mass following the front, so the end of next week will be much colder!
Good morning and I hope everyone has an awesome Thanksgiving Day! As you can see on the satellite picture below, the only low pressure is located off the Southern California Coast. So, should be a fairly quiet couple of days with our weather pattern! It won't last long though, as a weak system clips the area on Sunday with some clouds and a chance of a couple of snow showers, then the stronger cold front we've been talking about later Monday night or Tuesday. The much colder air will be with us for several days, and we'll see some snow from a couple of different systems moving across the area. So, enjoy the next couple of days before the much colder, unsettled weather moves in!
Good morning! Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and Christmas is 4 weeks from today!!! The high pressure will remain over the area, but weakening today and tomorrow. The low pressure on the satellite images just west of San Francisco, will head to a point just southwest of San Diego tomorrow. We will see some clouds and even a chance of light snow or snow showers later Saturday night and Sunday morning, but accumulations across the Basin and up into Park should be an inch or less. The bigger change in the pattern is still on track with the cold front moving across our area later Monday and early Tuesday resulting in some snow and ushering in a much colder air mass!!
Good morning!!! Hope all of you are enjoying the little break in the pattern, because next week is going to be the opposite with several systems moving across the area bringing some fresh snow and a much colder air mass. My challenge is to give you enough detail, but not too much, as I know last year the information I put out was used by a local ski resort (The Canyons) that didn't pay for the information. The changes begin to take shape on Sunday, as the initial system moves into the Pacific Northwest. We'll see the cold front with this system move into Utah later Monday and Tuesday with snow developing, then gradually colder through the end of the week. A very, very busy week in the weather department next week.
Good morning! As you can tell on the satellite image below, there's not much cloudiness over the West this morning, and the clouds just off the West Coast, and the system behind it, won't make it into our area. The split flow this week will push the storminess more toward Southern California, and we end up with a fairly quiet weather in the weather department. Now, at the end of the week and over the weekend, we'll see some changes in the flow pattern that will bring a fairly strong cold front from western Canada and the Gulf of Alaska and push it into the Pacific Northwest and then into the Intermountain region (us) early next week. This shift in the pattern will likely bring us some snow, but also potenti
Gooooood morning! What a difference a little cloudiness makes, as it's 24 degrees outside my house this morning, as opposed to the 2 degrees yesterday morning!!! The low pressure that was by San Diego yesterday morning, is now moving eastward across Arizona this morning and New Mexico tonight. That area of cloudiness off the West Coast will split apart before making it inland, so we should see a fairly quiet weather pattern through Thanksgiving with high temperatures climbing into the 40s, but still the mornings will be really chilly still.
Good morning! It's opening day at Park City Mountain Resort, and many of you know that they are a client of mine and some good friends. I hope they have an awesome 50th season! It's a cold start with 2 degrees at my house, 9 degrees at the base of Park City and a balmy 22 degrees at 9,000 feet!!! We'll see some clouds over the area today and tonight, but other than maybe a couple of flurries higher up, we should be dry. In fact we should be dry through Thanksgiving, then a slight chance of snow showers on Friday. We'll be warming up, but still chilly mornings, but near 40 or into the low to mid 40s by early in the week. For today, dress warm and enjoy your Saturday!
Good morning, made it to Friday!!! It is a chilly start over the area with 10 degrees at my house with a little bit of an east wind. The low pressure is down near San Diego this morning, and it'll wobble around and make it's way slowly to the east and northeast through the weekend. We'll see some clouds, especially tomorrow, and can't rule out some flurries, but most of the activity should stay just south of us. We should stay dry Sunday through Wednesday with some warming of the air mass, but still some chilly mornings, just not as cold as this morning. The next system will move into the West later Wednesday and Thanksgiving and it's also expected to head toward Southern California, but I'll keep an eye on it and let you know.
Good morning! The snow finally arrived!!! I was expecting a little last night, but better late than never! The cold front is over us now, and the moisture is feeding along the boundary, so we should continue to see snow through the morning and into the afternoon, BUT the moisture layer will be shrinking, so it'll get much lighter and could end all together by mid to late afternoon. We're looking at 1 to as much as 3 inches across the Snyderville Basin. Colder and drier tonight and tomorrow, and other than a little cloudiness that may come back northward from the low pressure across Southern California and Arizona, we should be dry through
