A quick hitting cold front will move through the area today, bringing scattered afternoon snow showers for the high elevations. We could see a few inches of snowfall to soften up late day turns. This system has sped up — it was originally not supposed to impact our area until Monday, but now looks like it will mostly be out of the region by Monday with a cool northwest flow in its wake.
Warming high pressure will take control for mid-week through the end of the week. An approaching trough will kick up winds for Friday with snow likely to impact the Wasatch next weekend along with much colder temperatures. This storm looks to be another (perhaps the last) atmospheric river. Heavy rain and snow in the California will progress into our area as well. Still some questions as to how much makes it this far east. But decent snowfall is certainly possible. Stay tuned…
P.S. I wanted to throw in this image that shows the rapidly intensifying cold front pushing into Utah.
