Hilary moisture may arrive on Sunday, then the pattern changes to cool and wet

Not much change since yesterday.  Hilary moisture looks like it may not make it quite as far north as we thought at first, it also may center it’s impact east of the Wasatch front.  Still expecting at least scattered showers and thunderstorms Sunday and Monday before the moisture is swept away by a weak cold front.  This weak cold front will make way for a strong cold front later next week.  The GFS has been consistent for the last few runs in bringing the front onto the Cal coast Tuesday and through the Great Basin on Wednesday.  Impacts for the Wasatch will be showers, snow in the mountains on Wednesday night into Thursday (Oct. 5-6).  At this time it looks like a few inches of wet snow for the mountains, not enough to ski on but perhaps it will cool temps enough to start night-time snowmaking.

As of this time, the GFS is trying to raise heights again for the following weekend (Oct. 8-9) for warmer, drier weather but it is still too early to know for sure what will happen.

Whatever happens, the Powder Hounds will let you know…. the signs of winter’s coming are definitely there.
