Strong Spring Storm

Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 6:34 am

Next storm moving in on Friday evening and lasting through Saturday.  Looking at the model data, the system looks fairly good to my eyes.  Spring storms have a tendency to come in a little weaker than models project in the long and medium range, so we’ll have to watch this closely again tomorrow to make sure it’s not showing signs of splitting, etc.  However, as it stands right now we could certainly see 6-12″ in the Upper Cottonwoods if everything comes together just right.  If I’m not mistaken, Alta and Snowbird are the only ski resorts still operating this weekend but touring should still be decent above 9K feet.

In other news, I’m still in India battling temps of 40C or higher (105F)… Wishing I was home to snag some late season turns.  Get a faceshot or two in my honor this weekend!
