Storm remains on track to bring active weather for the latter part of this week. Thursday and Friday should be the most active days. Initially high snow levels will drop down below 6000 feet by Friday. Models right now bring anywhere from .5″ of liquid to almost 2″ for the high Wasatch. That means we could see anywhere from just a few inches of snow to well over a foot. Could be our last chance for powder skiing as most resorts that aren’t already closed will be closing this weekend.
Isolated to scattered showers will continue over the next couple days as Utah remains in an a moist pattern. Showers will be most likely in the afternoon hours as daytime heating influences the region. A more potent storm is possible for later this week.
If you were around last April, you may remember the Tax Day storm that brought us our best powder day of the year on April 15. This year, we have a chance for another good storm. Not going to say it will be the 30″ of fluff we had last year, but we could be skiing some late powder again. Right now it looks like storm will push in mostly on Thursday with powder skiing possible thru Saturday. I won’t be updating as frequently or as in-depth as I do mid-winter, so the onus will be on you to keep a close watch on this storm as it approaches. I’m just going to quietly hope that the IRS delivers refunds similar to last year…
