June in the Wasatch

Thursday, June 7, 2012 at 1:02 pm

June is typically a quiet month in the Wasatch. The winter has all but finished, and the summer monsoon season is still in its infancy. Usually there is still decent snow coverage in the high country but this year is another story.  Looking ahead at this June, everything looks about as normal as you can expect.  A few late season cold fronts have already and will continue to move through the area for the first half of the month, causing large fluctuations in temperature from day to day with occasional winds and clouds and even a shower or thunderstorm.   Last week the high country saw a couple inches of snow from just such a front.  Looking ahead, it looks like toward the end of the month we will quiet down to a more typical summer pattern.  That means sunny mornings and warm afternoons with convective clouds forming and even isolated to scattered afternoon/evening thunderstorms possible.  

Still nothing major in the world of weather to suggest anything out of the ordinary for this summer, fall, or winter.  Usually we have to wait until at least of the summer season for more concrete evidence of what we can expect in the upcoming winter.  I know a lot of our readers are into water sports during the summer months.  Water temperatures will be quick to rise this summer due to a premature end to the snow run-off.  And the quiet weather will make for perfect boating conditions.  

Hope you all are enjoying the warm weather and not missing your skis or board too much yet.

    Hey, what exactly caused our low-snowfall this past winter?
