Another tantalizingly tasty Tuesday

Tuesday, April 16, 2013 at 7:56 am

Last night the frontal boundary quickly start to lift north and gave me hope.  However, as the boundary started to pivot, it dropped south again and is now down near St. George.  A couple inches still fell overnight and it is snowing right now in the Cottonwoods as radar is currently filling in along the Wasatch Front.  Snow should fall for a good portion of the day but it likely won’t be overly heavy.  I still think we’ll get 3-6″ total by late tonight in the Wasatch.  That will bring storm totals since Sunday to 8-14″ in the Cottonwoods.  Hopefully we’ll get under a good snow band at some point in the next 24 hours that will help us boost our totals.

The Uintas and the mountains of Central Utah will see the best snowfall today, so if you’re looking for some deeper backcountry powder, those are the places to head.

We clear out late Wednesday and Thursday.  A weak system will move in late on Friday with a few inches of snow possible above 7,000 ft for Saturday.

Enjoy today and tomorrow, a few inches of fresh snow from last night on top of fresh snow on both Saturday and Sunday night with the mountain to yourself.  Can’t beat that!

    Many thanks for the updates all season! Quick question – is there any reason to be even slightly optimistic about the weekend of 4/27?

    • Well, all indications right now are that ridging will develop next week. The only optimism I can give you is that the 27th is still far away so there is plenty of time for storms to show up in the models.
