A weak system moves through tonight into Thursday morning with scattered high elevation snow showers. Resorts can expect anywhere from a trace to 4″ of snow. Warm this weekend!
Not much change from yesterday. The system is really weak. It will move into the area tonight and scattered showers can be expected through tomorrow with the snow level near 7000 feet. Accumulations should be very light, with 1-2″ of dense snow for the upper half of most resorts. A few spotty locations could see a bit more. NAEFS members show a mean snowfall amount of 2″ for the Upper Cottonwoods:
We clear out by Friday with a warm weekend ahead. A system will be pushing into the PNW and that will fuel a southwesterly flow that will enhance the warm temps further. We could be looking at record highs by Sunday.
Next week a closed low forms to our south and a weak boundary gets draped just to our north. There is a chance that these could combine to bring the region showers from about Tuesday-Thursday of next week, however the precipitation looks disorganized in the GFS and non-existent in the Euro. So confidence is very low.
In the long-range, models are trying hard to change the pattern but it seems to slip through our fingers as it has for most of the season. Good weather patterns are constantly just out of reach, we see them in the long-range forecast models but we can’t quite get there. Kinda feels like this….
Anyway…. Happy Hump Day!
