Waiting for Change

Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at 8:08 am

Summary:

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.

Details:

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
