Update, Friday 9/26:
It should come as no surprise by now, as we’ve been forecasting it for over a week, but in case you missed it…. The first cool, fall-like trough since late August is poised to move into the area tonight.
Temps will be warm and winds will be gusty today ahead of the system. Showers will pop up tonight ahead of the cold front but the real meat and potatoes of the storm moves in tomorrow. Heavy rain possible for much of northern and western Utah. Snow levels will be very high at first but lower to 9k feet Saturday night and perhaps 8k feet by Sunday night. Total accumulations should be just an inch or two except for highest peaks which could see 6″+ above 11k feet.
The heaviest precip should end before Sunday, but residual moisture and wrap-around could keep showers around until Monday morning.
Another storm is possible for late Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. This one is much colder and stronger in the European Model. The GFS is only moderately cool and just paints a few showers. We’ll have to watch and see… Either way, Autumn is upon us and we are quickly on our way toward winter! Get stoked!
