Good morning! It should be a nice day over the area, but some high clouds spreading into the area through the afternoon. The cold front moving into the Pacific Northwest will reach us late tonight and early tomorrow morning bringing a chance of showers, ushering in a much cooler air mass and breezy northwest winds. While the air mass will be cold enough to lower the snow level down to us, there's just not a great deal of moisture and dynamics to generate anything more than rain or snow showers. A warmer southwest flow of air will develop early in the week, as a strong low pressure develops along the West Coast. The front associated with this system will be weakening as it moves inland, but should result in some cooler temperatures and a chance of shower on Wednesday.
Good morning! We have a couple of more really nice weather days, but then you can see the system in the Gulf of Alaska, and this will push a cold front across us on Sunday ushering in a much cooler air mass and some showers. The air mass is cold enough to bring the snow level down to the Snyderville Basin and while I don't expect any accumulations, I do expect to at least see a little rain and snow mixed. Early next week, we'll see a strong low pressure develop along the West Coast resulting in a warmer southwest flow and should be dry Monday and Tuesday. A cold front will move across the area on Wednesday. So, all in all, a little bit of everything over the next week!
Good morning! A fairly moist air mass just to our east, as moisture from ex-hurricane Simon moves across the central and southern Rockies. We should have a couple of nice days to end the week, but a cold front will move southeastward on Sunday bringing a cooler air mass and a chance of a couple of showers, but the main impact will likely be just east of us. It's something I'll keep an eye on, but precipitation amounts are looking on the light side. A fairly strong low pressure will move to the West Coast early next week and we could see some showers with it, and possibly at the end of the week. No big storms, yet, but something a little more interesting than high pressure and warmer than normal temperatures!
Good morning! This has certainly been a nice stretch of weather over the area, but the high pressure will continue to weaken, so the peak in our max temperatures is expected to be today with a gradual drop off through the end of the week. The dry weather pattern should continue through the weekend, but there are some changes in the flow pattern for next week with a stronger jet stream into the western states bringing a cooler air mass and we could see some precipitation as well. Some of the models are considerably colder, but others keep a little more of the energy offshore. I like the cooler trend, but not off the deep end just yet, and we have some time to let the details become a little clearer. Have an awesome Tuesday!
Good morning! We're in a nice stretch of weather with sunny days, clear cool nights and just awesome to get out and do some hiking, biking or really anything outdoors. Get some conditioning in for the coming winter season!! This pattern will hold for the coming week, but the high pressure will be shifting further to the west by the end of the week and we'll begin to see the pattern begin to change. All in all, good weather for the coming week!
Good morning, and a chilly one at that! I was 27 degrees this morning at my house, but I saw a couple of 25's across the Snyderville Basin. The mornings are likely to remain chilly over the next couple of days, but the afternoon temperatures will be gradually warming through early next week with readings mainly in the 60s this weekend and early next week. A lot of sunshine through the period, so plenty of great weather to enjoy the fall conditions!
Good morning! We've made it to October 1st, and my schedule gets sooooo busy, as ski resorts come online, and I've got my grandson to keep me company. It may seem like he's doing the forecasts, but I'm going to still try to maintain the blogs, just a little more difficult! A cold front has moved east of the area, and we have one more band of clouds and showers to move across the area this afternoon. You can see on the satellite image below that this band is over southern Idaho and while I don't expect any heavy precipitation, we should see some showers and lower snow levels. Once this band exits off to the east, we'll see a drier air mass through the weekend and most of next week! So, a nice stretch of fall weather with temperatures above normal this weekend and next week. The next couple of mornings will be pretty frosty though!
Good morning! We'll see more rain showers and a couple of thunderstorms today and tonight, but we'll see a break in the pattern with a drier air mass pushing into the area tomorrow and this will be with us through the weekend. A weak cold front will move across the area later today and tonight bringing the rain (and even some upper elevation snow), then the coolest day of the week will be tomorrow. The drier air mass will lead to some cold mornings, and we're likely to be into the 20s on Thursday and Friday morning across the Snyderville Basin. It'll begin to warm up with our high temperatures over the weekend in the mid to upper 60s by Sunday.
Good morning! The remains of the low pressure continues to move across the area and we'll see more showers scattered over the area for the next couple of days. Any breaks in the cloud cover will fill in fairly quickly with showers and thunderstorms developing. In addition, there's a cold front moving into the Pacific Northwest today and this will help keep the showers and thunderstorms over us through Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The good news is we'll dry out and the weather is looking nice at the end of the week and through the weekend. It's a fairly cool week, and once we clear out, a couple of the mornings like Thursday and Friday morning are likely to drop to near freezing or slightly below.
Goooood Morning! Now, that was a very wet 24 hour period and I don't have any good, reliable data for rainfall amounts in the Snyderville Basin. I do know that a gauge up at 9,000 feet in Thaynes Canyon area had 2.00 inches of rain, and the Park City Golf Course had 1.28 inches! The upper level low pressure is located near Ely, Nevada and will be moving eastward today and tonight. We'll see more showers and a couple of thunderstorms today and there's a chance of showers through Tuesday, but amounts won't be as heavy as what we've seen in the last 24 hours. We should see some breaks as well, and definitely drier at the end of the week and next weekend!
