Snow still in the forecast

Saturday, September 21, 2013 at 9:13 am

Today will be warm and windy, similar to this past Tuesday.  Tomorrow will be much cooler with scattered showers and maybe even some snow in the highest elevations (>11,000 ft).  A colder, stronger system will bring a better threat for snowfall Wednesday and Thursday.

As the front approaches the area this afternoon, southwest winds will pull up some moisture into the area.  This could lead to some isolated thunderstorms.  Early tomorrow morning the front should pass through northern Utah, moving southeast through the state throughout the rest of the day.  Much cooler air will return along with a few showers.  I don’t think we’ll get much in the way of snow as the temperatures are not quite cold enough for snow except perhaps on the very highest peaks.  We may see just a touch of white above 11k feet or so.

Temperatures will rebound a bit on Monday and Tuesday ahead of the next trough.  This system looks like it will have a bit more moisture/cold air and dig deeper into the area.  Models currently suggest that a few inches could be possible above 8,000 ft.  That means that many resort bases could see their first snowfall late on Wednesday into Thursday morning.  It will be exciting to see for sure.

After that, it looks like we have an extended break in the action with warm temperatures for the first week of October.
