Waiting for Change

Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 8:08 am


High pressure remains the dominant feature.  Warm temps will continue.  A weak system will brush far northern Utah on Thursday and offer an increase in clouds and perhaps a shower or two.  Weekend looks mostly dry and warm.  Next week, the pattern will change, likely allowing for snow to return to the region.


Not much going on still, at least in the short term.  The ridge has been in control.  It will flatten a bit on Thursday and allow for a system to pass just to our north.  We will see some clouds and breezes and perhaps a shower or two in the far north.  Snow levels will be high.

We dry out again as we head into what should be a beautiful weekend.  Winds and clouds could increase on Sunday as a system approaches.

Long Range:

Things start to change next week as a trough develops off the west coast and pushes inland.  We could see a boundary drape itself over the area Sunday night into Monday and this could bring some precipitation to mainly northern Utah.  Models still differ on the strength of this feature.  Then a more prominent system advertised by both major models for the middle of next week (~March 22).  Potential exists for further systems after that.  March could go our like a lion if this pattern sticks around.


P.S.  Whisper Ridge cat and heli skiing’s inaugural season has been one to remember with 150% of average snowfall so far this winter falling on their 60,000 acres of terrain.  Whisper Ridge is a proud sponsor of WSF.  They will continue to offer cat skiing adventures through the end of March.  Check out their website to book a trip for next week when active weather returns.  www.whisperridgeutah.com
