Spring has sprung

Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 7:34 am

Yesterday was a great last powder day for many of us.  Generally speaking, snowfall will ease up for awhile through the rest of April.  Yes, there’s a chance for a few flakes here and there through the end of the month.  And who knows what May will bring.  But for right now, any imminent threat for accumulating snow looks to be over.

Today will be sunny and great Spring skiing.  I think cold temps overnight will create a very firm layer early this morning but everything should soften up later this morning in the sunshine.  Afternoon corn snow possible.

We will be clipped by two waves, one later tonight and another on Monday night.  These systems are weak to begin with and are taking most of their already limited moisture north and east of the area.  It’s not out of the question for us to get a few showers in far northern Utah.  Though any accumulation looks unlikely.

An extended break for later this week with warmer temps and more Spring skiing.  The upcoming weekend looks mostly dry, but there have been a few model runs that have showed some weak energy sneaking into the Great Basin and the Wasatch.  We’ll have to watch that.  Otherwise, it looks like Spring has sprung.

Here’s one last look at just one of the many powder turns that went down yesterday in the Wasatch:
