One last storm

Thursday, May 7, 2015 at 9:04 am

We’ve been exceptionally moist here in Utah over the past few days.  Rainfall totals in the Salt Lake Valley have exceeded an inch in many locations.  Mountain bike trails that were damp and perfect two days ago, are now just muddy.  Up in the high Wasatch, snow levels have generally been around 9k feet.  Yesterday’s moisture dropped a few inches on the upper part of Snowbird.  Creamy turns are being had as I type this!

Today (Thursday) we will see more afternoon and evening showers — although they likely won’t be as widespread as yesterday’s.  On Friday, the low that is spinning up all these showers will start to eject northeast through Utah.  Friday afternoon should have plenty more showers throughout the state.  Saturday we will see wrap around moisture and cooler air with lowering snow levels.  Rain in the valleys with snow accumulating above 7,000 feet (perhaps even a bit lower).  Snow amounts at Snowbird will likely be in the 6-12″ range between Friday evening and Sunday morning.  Snow will be rather dense — typical of late Spring.

This is the last chance for lift-serviced powder!  Go get some!
