Thursday Afternoon update:
I don’t think it’s going to be worth it tomorrow. Better stay home and/or go to work.
A complex storm is making its way into Northern Utah today (Wednesday). Showers are likely at times into the weekend. Snow levels will be high today, lower tomorrow, then could rise up a bit again on Friday.
Very hard to pin down the details, but it looks like there will be three sectors to this storm. The first will be today (Wednesday) with warm showers and high snow levels in a SW flow. Definitely a possibility for a couple rumbles of thunder. Probably not the best day for skiing with rain possible up to 9000 feet. The second part of this storm will move in late tonight thru tomorrow as the low pressure system drops thru the region. This will usher in cold air and a NW flow that will favor the Wasatch Front. Snow levels will lower to 6000 feet and could drop as low as benches in heavier showers tomorrow. The third and final piece of this system will be Friday into Friday night as the low positions itself near the four corners. This will allow for wrap-around precipitation and an easterly flow over the area. Could get highest amounts on the Wasatch Back. The temperatures will moderate, so snow levels could rise again above 7k feet.
I’m leaving the accumulations up to the whim of the IRS to determine what our tax refunds will be this year. Not even going to venture a guess. But I will say this storm does have potential to bring a good amount of liquid to the region. Elevation is your friend this time of year. Keep an eye on radar and webcams over the next few days and if you see it’s snowing a lot, then perhaps you should consider a trip into the mountains for a Spring powder day.
