Break Time

Wednesday, March 19, 2014 at 7:00 am


Conditions will be clear and warmer today.  A dry cold front moves through tomorrow with a few clouds and breezes.  Another warm day on Friday before a weak system grazes far northern Utah on Saturday with a chance for a few light snow showers.  Generally warm and dry early next week before we transition to a stormier pattern for the last few days of March.


Yesterday’s sleeper powder day was one of the days of the season in the Cottonwoods.  Other areas that didn’t see quite as much snow were good, but perhaps not great.  It was a much needed surprise as we head into a dry period over the next week.

Warmer and mostly sunny today.  Tomorrow we have a cold front that will pass over us, however it looks completely dry and I think it will only kick up the breezes a bit and cool us down a few degrees.

The next system will be dropping along the continental divide on Saturday.  This system will only graze northern Utah.  A few snow showers will be possible in the mountains, but accumulations should be minimal.

High pressure moves back in for Sunday thru Wednesday of next week.

Long range:

All models agree on a more active pattern developing in the west with at large scale trough digging in the East Pacific and moving onshore.  The first system is timing for Thursday or Friday of next week.  Most ensembles show subsequent systems affecting the area into early April, but at this point nothing is concrete.  It does look like there will be more powder days in our future, we just have to be patient for a week or so.
