April Showers

Monday, April 4, 2016 at 6:38 am

Tuesday Update:

Dry weather thru the end of the work week.  Moisture streams into the area from the south starting Saturday with showers possible into early next week with high snow levels.




We will be clipped by a weak cold front today with scattered showers possible.  Snow levels will remain high today (Monday) with a rain/snow mix on the mountain during any showers.  Accumulations will be minor.  A southerly flow will bring abundant moisture into the area for the upcoming weekend, although snow levels will likely remain high.


A few scattered showers are possible today as a cold front passes through.  Not a ton of cold air today, therefore I think snow levels will generally remain at or above 8,000 feet today.  Snow levels will drop tonight, but moisture should be dwindling by then.  Tomorrow will be cooler with dry conditions returning.  We will warm back up through the end of the week.

As we head into the weekend, we should see a low pressure system off the southern California coast that will pull moisture up into Arizona and eventually Utah.  By late in the day on Saturday, all of Utah could see the threat for showers.   This southerly flow is unusual this time of year and is reminiscent of mid-summer monsoons.  Snow levels should be high during this event, so I don’t expect much in the way of accumulations.

There’s a chance for a cooler storm pattern to develop by middle of April, but certainly nothing concrete yet.  I still think there will be more powder days to come, just have to keep our eyes open.  I’ll let you know when there’s something imminent.
