Sunday Morning Dumps

Sunday, February 19, 2017 at 5:54 am

Summary:

Snow will fall this morning in the Wasatch before gradually tapering this afternoon. Additional chances for off and on snow showers Monday afternoon thru Tuesday morning before a more organized  and colder storm arrives Wednesday.

Details:

Snow showers continued yesterday and we picked up a couple more inches during the day in a few spots.  I was skiing 4-6″ of cream with my friends at Solitude.  Really fun if you knew were to look to find soft, wind deposited areas.

Snow has picked up again this morning as a wave of moisture crosses the Wasatch range of Northern Utah.  Snowfall amounts so far have been in the neighborhood of 2-6″ this morning.   Here is a look at the radar as of 5:30am this morning:

Heavier snow definitely falling in places this morning.  That will taper this afternoon, but some locales could pick up 6-12″ before it does.

A couple weak disturbances will then ripple through the area late Monday and early Tuesday which could bring some light accumulations.

Then, a colder more organized storm will move into Utah for Wednesday into Thursday.  We could see more significant accumulations of fluffier powder then.  Here is what the GEFS plumes look like over the next 6 days:

Univ of Utah

You can see today’s storm.  Then the additional weak waves for late tomorrow. Then the bigger storm on Wednesday/Thursday.  Definitely some good chances for powder over the next 5-6 days!

Long Range:

Ridge will build in to an extent to our west.  Systems will drop down into the region down the back side of the ridge but they will likely be weak.  I would expect conditions for next weekend to be cool with chances for mostly light snow perhaps.
