Does not get any better than this!

It just keeps snowing!  More snow likely into this afternoon, mainly for areas from I-80 south.

Additional accumulations of 3-6″ likely this afternoon.  Impressive snowfall totals continue!

Our break in the action begins tomorrow and will last through the weekend into early next week.  Next chance for a storm looks to be late Wednesday into Thursday of next week.  We’ll start taking a closer look at that tomorrow.

    Hi WSF,

    Wish I was in PC right now to enjoy this bounty of powder at my beloved Deer Valley. Thanks for the running total, it’s really fun to track. I said I would keep you updated on how the storms rolled through NorCal on their way to Utah. We’ve had insane rain amounts, as you know. The real destruction has been the high winds as exemplified by a huge gust snapping off the top of a huge redwood in my front yard and sending it into my house. I’m one of many cleaning up and dealing with damage. Still, after so many years of drought we will take too much rain over too little any day! Here is a link to a video of the damage. the power of nature!

    Love reading your blog but I’m thoroughly confused on where you are getting your snowfall numbers. There are multiple days that you have reported over a foot at snow at Snowbird, the 12th which is today, so i’m assuming you’re looking at 12 to 24 hours, and they reported no snow over night with a 24 hour total of 3″. This was also the case for the 5th, where they reported just few inches but you reported 13″. Just curious. Cheers!

    • The totals reported are whatever each resort reports to Ski Utah each morning at 5:30am. https://www.skiutah.com/snowreport

      Very hard to get accurate totals all the time because ski resorts are always updating and changing the reports throughout the day. Take these as the best guestimate I can get each morning. I try to revise them each night if the totals changed later in the day.

    Evan, you must be thrilled to be posting these updates vs. what you’ve had to post over the past couple of years. Hoping this keeps up until I’m back in Utah mid-Feb. Any thoughts on long-range trends (apologies if I’ve already missed a post about it).

    Even getting steady snowfall on the SW side of the valley floor today. Guessing about 3 inches so far…pretty dense and wet, but still snow. The Oquirrh Mts. getting it as well. And from my back patio, a great view of the wonderfully white Wasatch mountains. I think I feel a sick day coming on tomorrow 🙂
