10-day Snow Forecast: Little or No Snow Expected

SLC and surrounding areas will see temps cool around normal today low-60s with temps rising gradually through the end of the week.  Wednesday may see a very weak front brush us, picking up slight breezes and a few clouds with an isolated shower here and there. Thereafter high pressure will take a firm grip on us and we will warm 10-15 degrees above normal this upcoming weekend into early next week.  This means temps in the valley in the 70-75 degree range with the mountains having highs ten degrees or so cooler.

Snow in the forecast? No.  But the long-range fantasy charts are hinting at the ridge breaking down the last few days of October… Like I said last night, this time of year the models usually underestimate the strength of the ridge. Not to say it won’t break down but it may take longer than the models are predicting currently.

Tentative forecast would suggest some snow moving in the first week of November.  It’s a long way away but it is light at the end of an Indian Summer Tunnel.
