Extended period of beautiful Fall weather

Tuesday, October 15, 2013 at 7:22 am

Storm system is pulling well out of the area today.  There is some leftover moisture that could spark up a shower or two this morning, but for the most part, we are done.  Accumulations ranged from just an inch or two up north or at PC resorts to significantly more in the Cottonwoods.  I still don’t have an exact report, but from pictures, it looked like LCC had about 6″ at the base with perhaps more on the upper mountain.  Anybody up yesterday/today that can report?  Overall, it looks like accumulations were fairly close to the predictions.

As mentioned yesterday and the day before, we will now be on the eastern side of a highly amplified west coast ridge of high pressure.  Being on the eastern edge, cool air will filter down along with a couple grazing waves that will bring a few clouds to the area later this week.  However, we should stay dry for the foreseeable future.  Models currently don’t show any storms for the next 10 days.  Highs around SLC will be around 60 with low 50s for mountain valleys.  Good weather to get in a few last bike rides or golf rounds before winter sets in for good.

Right now, it looks like our next chance to break down the ridge will come toward the end of October.  Obviously, it’s impossible to make a forecast this far out and the models could very well back off on that idea in subsequent runs.  It would be an ideal scenario if we could have Mother Nature click into full gear right as we head into November.  Fingers crossed . . .

Until then, enjoy the beautiful Fall weather!
