Quick Punch

Mountain snowfall this morning will drop a couple inches before tapering off during the afternoon.  Another system will brush the area on Tuesday afternoon with snow showers likely in the mountains.  Drying and warming likely for later in the week.


A heavy band of precipitation is swinging through Northern Utah currently, Roughly from about Nephi northward.  Unfortunately, this is the tail end of the system and it will be relatively short-lived.  We should see clearing as early as later this morning.

Over the past 48 hours, precipitation amounts up north have been tremendous, as expected.  Here’s a map showing radar estimates over the past two days:


If you remember the image we posted before the event for expected precip, it looked a lot like this, with the vast majority falling north of Ogden.  Unfortunately for snow lovers, the snow levels didn’t drop down to reasonable elevations until last night.  So there were no prodigious snowfall amounts in Utah to speak of.  Tony Grove Lake does show 9 very wet inches overnight.  Webcam this morning at the top of Logan Canyon:


So there was definitely some snowfall.

Farther south, the Cottonwoods and PC are getting their quick blanket of snow right now.  Live view of Solitude this morning:


Again, I’d expect this activity to end fairly quickly today.  The next wave moves in tomorrow afternoon and we could see another round of mountain snow showers with an inch or two possible.

Later this week we dry out and warm up for next weekend.  Right now it looks like our next chance for activity will be around October 25-26, hopefully with a chance for stronger systems by the end of the month.  Stay tuned!
