Powder Day! April Fools Day is over — this is not a joke.

Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 7:27 am

In yesterday’s discussion we said the following line, “Tomorrow might actually be a bit a sleeper pow day in places that benefit from good snow bands.” We hope you paid attention because the easterly flow last night as the Low passed just to our south brought copious snowfall to the Wasatch Back (and the Cottonwoods). 12-15″ along the Park City ridge, one of the better storms of the season. Get some!

We clear out today with a few showers still around.  Clear tomorrow and Thursday before a couple weak systems move into the area.  Nothing too impressive but late Friday into early Saturday we could see a few inches of snow in the high elevations. A colder, stronger storm is timing for later in the weekend but the track is still very much in question with both the Euro and GFS suggesting it could drop west and then south of the area.  If it manages to track close to us, as last night’s system did, it could be a good snow producer, however if it tracks well to our west, we’ll likely see very little.  We’ll have to keep an eye on it — for now, expect cool, showery weather for this weekend.

Time to ski pow!

    hey WSF …. Thanks for your super specific forecast yesterday. A couple of us pre-planned a ski day for today based on your prediction and once again WSF has paid off!! Monitored snow fall totals based on your suggestion.

    As always , good job!

    Hope the models come around on the late weekend storm. Or even better, the actual storm. Looks like some areas get a lot of moisture. Just maybe not the Wasatch. We shall see.

  • just thought id say that it snowed about 10 inches at my house in park city (near main st) and it has all melted already. didnt last too long
