Snow has tapered off in most places, although it isn’t out of the question to see light snow continue for a few more hours in the high elevations. We are now in a 36-hour break before the next system arrives tomorrow (Monday) night. Snow totals range from 5-8″ in Park City. 10-16″ in the Cottonwoods. 15-20″ in the Northern Wasatch. And 6-13″ for the mountains of S. Utah. This was very close to the original forecast with the only difference being that the northern Wasatch slightly over-performed and Park City slightly under-performed. But the forecast going in was 8-16″ and when you average all the totals out, we fall right dead in between those numbers.
The next system will move in tomorrow night and is looking good. It isn’t as strong of a system as this last one but is forecasted to take a very similar track and will be just as cold, so lake enhancement will once again be a possibility. The majority of the snow will fall between 10 PM Monday night and 8 AM on Tuesday, with scattered snow showers during the day Tuesday. Tuesday should be another good powder day! Right now we are going to forecast 5-10″ for the Cottonwoods and Northern Wasatch with 3-8″ for Park City resorts.
Ridging then starts to build in, although we might get brushed by a system on Thursday–at best just a some clouds and chance for a few flakes. Ridge will then hold strong through next weekend into next week. The next chance for a revert to stormier weather will be the second week of March.
