Snow showers likely today in Northern Utah with several inches possible. This should allow for some soft turns today and tomorrow morning. High pressure warms us up and dries us out for the rest of the week. Next chance for snow is late this weekend into early next week.
A fairly weak disturbance is pass through Northern Utah today. Snow showers are just now firing up in the mountains as per latest radar returns (6 AM):
Expect these snow showers to continue for much of the day off and on. Daytime heating could help to destabilize the environment and we could get some heavy, convective showers at times and perhaps even a lightning strike or two.
Total accumulations will generally be in the 2-4″ range above 7,000 feet with perhaps more than that in the Cottonwoods. This is the type of system where one area can get under a heavy band or shower and see quite a bit in a short amount of time. I recommend keeping a close eye on radar and webcams if you’re trying to plan going up later today or tomorrow.
High pressure takes control again starting on Tuesday with drying and warming thru the week. Lame. Next chance for snow appears like it could be late in the weekend or early next week but models not showing much agreement at this time. Still waiting on something more significant and concrete to show up in the forecasts.
Enjoy today’s new snowfall while you can!
