Pow Day

Tuesday, March 11, 2014 at 7:34 am

So far we’ve seen 6-7″ in the Cottonwoods, 2-5″ along the PC ridge, and 4″ or so up in the Northern Wasatch mountains.

Snow showers will continue for most of this morning before tapering off this afternoon.  Looks like we will meet or exceed the 4-8″ forecast for most locations.  Unlike some of our previous storms, this snow should be low density on top for more typical Utah fluff.

We ridge up tomorrow through Friday before a weak system grazes us on Saturday.  Only a chance for a few light snow showers in the mountains, otherwise just clouds and a few breezes.

Huge disagreement in the models now beyond the weekend.  The GFS keeps the storm track to our north and keeps Utah mostly dry through the extended.  The EC, for two consecutive runs now, digs a system into the area Monday of next week.  The EC then digs an even deeper, colder trough into the area late next week.  Again, the GFS shows none of this.  It will be interesting to see which model has a better grasp on things for next week.  Right now, I’m hoping it’s the ECMWF!
