Heading out camping and biking, so just wanted to post real quick to wrap-up this storm cycle….
Little Cottonwood Canyon saw the most snowfall with 50-55″ of new snow since Monday. Alta-Collins sensor reached its deepest snow depth of the season at overnight at midnight on April 29th. A very healthy depth of 161″. It has since settled a bit and will continue to do so through the weekend. I doubt we’ll get back to that depth unless we get an unexpected dump this upcoming week.
This storm cycle also gave us a spike in the snowpack to our highest values of the season at 58.4″ of SWE. Was this a record breaking season? No. But it sure was good and it’s hard to have any complaints as virtually all mountains saw above average snowfall.
Cool but dry this weekend. Then a weak system will brush far northern Utah on Monday and Tuesday and bring us a chance for some snow showers. Late in the week, ridging will really take over with rapidly warming temps.
