Winding down

Storm is on its last legs this morning with just a few showers in a northwest flow.  Accumulating snow returned to the area yesterday into last night.  Alta got another 6″ of snow to go with the 4 yesterday.  Accumulations in the Cottonwoods area was likely in the 5-10″ range total since Thursday above 8,500ft.  Accumulations were also significant in the northern Wasatch in the highest elevations.  Check out the Needles patio at Snowbasin:


Hard to tell for sure, but I think there’s at least a foot accumulated up there.

Total precipitation was significant with this storm, especially north of SLC.  Here is a map of estimated precipitation.  The red and dark colors are the 2-4″ of liquid range.


After today, we should see a warm up thru the week.  Most of the snowfall should melt off, but there is a chance that some of the north facing slopes see it stick around.  We should see moisture re-enter the area later next week but temperatures should remain warm — more summer-like scattered showers and thunderstorms rather than snow.
