Today was the first snow of the season for portions of the Wasatch above about 8,500 feet. Not much more than a couple slushy inches fell, but for August, any snow is a lot of snow. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible this afternoon as the atmosphere destabilizes with residual moisture in the air.
We are not done yet as another cool system drops into the area on Monday. A cold front should move through late on Monday with more showers and perhaps a few more flakes up high. We’ll warm back up for the rest of the work week. Right now it looks like we’ll have a chance for yet another cool system next weekend. This is a very unusual Fall-like pattern indeed!
