Scattered showers today with generally warm temperatures. Cold portion of the storm arrives tonight into tomorrow. Snow should accumulate on Friday above 7,000 feet.
This morning radar shows the Wasatch and Wasatch Front caught in between an axis of convection to our east that is pushing storms into the Uintas and another large area of precipitation over the Idaho-Nevada-Utah border. That means that most of the populated areas are dry as of now. Although, we saw some strong storms last night north of SLC. Today, it’s looking like scattered showers in the Wasatch and adjacent valleys. For the Uintas, there should be heavy precipitation today with snow possible in the very highest elevations.
Radar as of 8am:
Tomorrow is the real meat and potatoes of this system as the cold core pushes over the area and we see an extended period of a moist, northwest flow. Should be rainy in the valleys and snowy in the mountains. Things will start to wind down Friday night, but showers could linger into the day Saturday.
Still thinking 6-12″ is a good bet for the high elevations by Saturday morning.
