Tuesday PM update:

Quick update this afternoon to make mention that GFS and EC have come into better agreement that the low mentioned yesterday will move inland a bit quicker than previously thought.  Now thinking it will move into Utah during the day on Monday rather than Tuesday.  Still think there’s potential for it to drop south of the Wasatch but we’ll have to watch.  No matter how you spin it, this system is not going to be anywhere near as potent as this past storm.

Previous discussion:

There were a lot of concerns about the forecast for this last system as it was complex with so many potential factors to go wrong. But luckily, everything went according to plan and we ended up with 15-30″ of new snow in the Wasatch with even more in select spots.  Not too shabby! Today’s snow was the light, fluffy snow Utah is famous for. Was hoping for a little more convective snow showers today but not going to complain.

Looking ahead, we start to warm up tomorrow with very warm temps likely by the end of the week.  Good weather for working on that goggle tan.  Been monitoring a low pressure system that’s set to drop down the Pacific coast this weekend.  Some runs of the GFS have tried to bring it inland by Sunday but thinking that it will meander off the coast for a couple days before finally ejecting inland on Monday.  Should pass over Utah Tuesday or so but details are vague right now.  Potential exists for it to dive south of the area as well.  Figured it was worth mentioning however, as this is our next shot at snowfall.

For now, enjoy the new snow and the warm temps that are coming our way later this week.

Happy Shredding!
