Very little has changed from yesterday’s discussion. Bluebird up high today with haze in the valleys. Typical Utah inversions…
Tonight clouds increase as a weak system grazes Northern Utah. A chance for a snow shower or two tomorrow in the northern mountains. That system clears out by Saturday for a mostly sunny weekend.
Wx stays dry and inverted through early next week. Still looks like another cold trough will move into the area late next week. Eastern Pacific ridge remains stubbornly parked off the coast through the extended, forcing systems north before dropping their remnants into the Northern Rockies/Great Basin. Still not much agreement in the models on the exact strength/depth of this trough, so for now we’ll continue to wait for better agreement. As of right now, colder weather with a chance for snow looks likely for Thursday/Friday next week (Dec 19-20).
Think of it this way, mother nature is giving you a 10-day window of dull weather to get your X-mas shopping done and not be distracted by too much fresh powder.
