Wet and wild today in Northern Utah. Heavy rain and mountain snow above 9,000 feet likely. The highest elevations, such as Hidden Peak at 11k feet, could see several inches of snow. The cold front and copious precipitation associated with it as of 7:15am this morning marching toward the Wasatch Front:
Expect numerous showers this afternoon and evening with heavy precip at times. On Thursday, another weaker wave will graze far northern Utah with perhaps a few more scattered showers.
This weekend, we will dry out and warm up (a perfect Autumn weekend), with this trend continuing into next week. A deep trough is forecasted to dig off the Pacific Northwest next week, but at this point it’s unclear if it will be able to progress inland or not. My guess is that our next chance for snow will come some time around the end of September.
Winter – she’s coming!
