Model forecasts have not been encouraging for this week. Our weak storms are generally looking even weaker. Clouds, breezes, a few mountain snow showers, not much accumulation likely. Individual waves on Monday, Tuesday night, and Friday.
Models still looking solid for a pattern change beyond next weekend… WSF
A very weak system will clip far Northern Utah today (Saturday). Mostly just clouds, but cannot rule out a couple mountain snow showers. Another weak system on Monday will bring another chance for generally light snow to Northern Utah. A couple more weak systems possible later next week.
The first in what looks like a series of very weak systems will move through today. This thing is pretty lame, so clouds and breezy weather will be the main impact. Can’t rule out a few snow showers in the mountains, especially up near the Idaho border.
Next weak system will come in on Monday. This system is stronger than today’s, but still only looks like a few inches at best.
Models have come around to a new idea since yesterday morning and that is to bring in a third weak system sometime around Tuesday night. This solution is much more prominent in the EC than the GFS, but could mean an additional couple inches.
Finally, there appears to be a fourth weak system for about Thursday night or Friday of next week. Obviously, details are vague this far out. Some suggestions this wave could be the strongest of the four, but that’s not really saying all that much…
Still looks like we will undergo a gradual pattern change over the first ten days of March. I’m optimistic that we can get some stronger storms into the area, but it may take some patience. Until then, we at least have some weak storm energy moving through the area. I always say that some energy is much better than no storm energy because at least we have an opportunity to be surprised by one of these storms.
P.S. I will be doing an end of month snowpack analysis on Monday or Tuesday.
