Showers & Thunderstorms possible thru Wednesday… Rain/Snow/Cooler Temps arrive Thursday

Saturday, October 1, 2011 at 2:26 pm

Warm weather will continue but temps will be slightly cooler than they have been.  Expect temps to drop a few degrees every day thru Wednesday (Oct. 5) with scattered thunderstorms possible each afternoon and evening as moisture is pulled up from the south.

Major Pattern change arrives Wednesday night and Thursday.  Front passage looks to be sometime Thursday Morning with widespread rain and high elevation snow likely.  Snow levels around 7 – 8 K.  Highs in valleys Thursday and Friday will only make it to the mid-50s with low temp around freezing.  Still difficult to predict snow amounts but 6-12 inches is possible on the higher peaks with locally higher amounts.  Both Euro and GFS have hinted at the low possibly cutting off from the flow and prolonging precip over the state through Friday.  A lot of details still need to be worked out.

Bottom line, WX is becoming more active and fall-like . . . Snow will be arriving soon!

…The Powder Hounds…

P.S. Foliage up the Canyons is beautiful, Aspens quickly approaching peak foliage at the tops of the canyons (Big and Little Cottonwood, Mill Creek).  The Hounds suggest you enjoy the colors in the morning this week, before diurnal heating generates thunderstorms, and before wind/snow/cold arrives on Wednesday.
