Welcome to (astronomical) Spring!

Friday, March 21, 2014 at 7:27 am


A chance for some light snow in northern Utah tonight and tomorrow with a much better chance for mountain snow in Central Utah.  High pressure returns for Sunday thru Wednesday before the next stronger system enters the area late Wednesday and Thursday of next week.


A weak cold front passed over us overnight and cooled temps a bit.  Another disturbance will move into Central Utah tonight and tomorrow, setting up a band of mostly light precipitation through the middle part of the state.  Mountains around SLC and PC will see a chance for some light snow tomorrow although accumulations will be light.  Better chance for snow will be in the mountains of Central Utah, eventually shifting to Southern Utah late tomorrow.  Still don’t think they’ll see much more than a few inches, but any snow is good news.

Strong high pressure re-builds for Sunday into early next week.  Temperatures will be warm and skies will be sunny.  Next large trough still forecasted to move into the Great Basin late on Wednesday and into Utah by Wednesday night.  This system is fairly slow moving and will likely provide a chance for snow into Friday.  Still too early to get into detail and talk amounts, but at this time it has potential to at least be a moderate snow producer.

High pressure returns for next weekend but it looks like another system will move into the area by Monday, March 31.

We’ll keep an eye on how this pattern change evolves over the next several days…Stay tuned!
