3-6″ of snow fell on most Utah resorts overnight. Scattered snow showers will continue today with minimal additional accumulations. Warm and sunny this weekend before our next system moves in late Monday into Tuesday.
3-6″ being reported overnight around the Wasatch. Storm had a difficult time getting organized last night and we never quite saw the prolonged period of heavy snow I was hoping for. A few more snow showers today could bump us up right into the 4-8″ range that was forecasted, but I think it’s safe to say most of the reports will be on the low end of what models were suggesting. That makes two systems this week that have ended up being slight disappointments — both of which were fast moving cold fronts out of the northwest. Of course, last week/weekend we had two storms that both overproduced. So like I always say, it always evens out in the end.
After a few additional snow showers during the day today, it looks like we’ll be dry and warm throughout the weekend with very Spring-like conditions in place.
Clouds will increase during the day Monday ahead of the next system which drops into the area Monday night into Tuesday. This system looks very similar to the past two systems we’ve had, so right now I’m not confident enough to say anything more than 3-6″… but hopefully this one works out a bit better for us.
High pressure ridging starts again Wednesday of next week. GFS and EC both suggesting that a very weak system could drop in around Saturday, March 15 — but otherwise, we look to stay in a warm and dry pattern for awhile. Still some suggestions of a deeper trough digging into the Western US around March 18 or so…. We’ll keep an eye on that.
