This is the time of year when the inter-mountain west starts to see it’s first high-elevation snows. Unfortunately, a strong ridge of high pressure will be keeping Northern Utah and surrounding areas high and dry for the foreseeable future.
Temps along the Wasatch front with be in the low to mid-80’s today with a slight cool down Monday into the high 70’s before the ridge builds back in for next week and highs rebound back to the mid-80’s. Models are hinting at a trof approaching out of the west for the upcoming weekend but at this time it looks like the most Utah will see is a slight cool down to more seasonable temps (mid-70’s) and a few more clouds.
Another interesting factor is Hurricane Hilary in the Eastern Pacific. Hilary will likely weaken and turn north toward Baja California. Her remnants may increase our chance for showers and thunderstorms early next week but models have yet to show this possibility so for now it is only an outside chance.
Snow is inevitable and as soon as it’s in the forecast, The Powder Hounds will let you know.
