New Focus

I still love to watch and forecast Utah weather and will continue to update the Utah Weather Cams, Utah Weather Links, and Climate Change pages but will no longer post on a regular basis. I'm spending more time enjoying Utah snow skiing, cycling, hiking, and water skiing.

Thanks for visiting!

Warm and windy then snow!

Record high temperatures on Saturday (80 in Salt Lake) with strong south winds will give way to snow on Sunday into Sunday night! Plan on trace to 3" of snow between 4,500 ft and 6,500 ft for most of Utah, 3-8" of snow above 6,500 ft for most Utah mountain areas.

Statewide storm

A statewide storm is expected to move through Utah on Monday. Plan on 3-8" of snow for the northern Utah mountains above 7,000 ft, 2-5" for the southern Utah mountains, 1-3" of snow for areas between 5,000 and 7,000 ft, and little if any snow below 5,000 ft.

More snow

More snow fell than expected Saturday night into the day on Sunday in the Wasatch Mountain areas above 9,000 ft, less snow than expected in areas that typically do well in a southerly flow. Not sure exactly why but likely due to the high snow levels most of the night.

Plan on more snow Sunday night into Monday with a general 3-5" more for all Utah Mountains, local 7-11" for the Wasatch Mountains and Uinta's between I-80 and I-84 as a moist unstable west-northwest flow sets up along with a possible lake band. Look for 2-6"+ of valley/bench snow between North Salt Lake and Ogden, other Wasatch Front valleys/benches will be in the trace-2" range.

Saturday night through Monday storm

A strong cold front is forecasted to move through Utah on Saturday night into early Sunday from southwest to northeast. Plan on 6-14" of snow for the Wasatch Mountains with the cold front, areas favored by southerly flow (PC, Sundance, Powder) will do the best. The second piece of the storm is forecasted to move through on Sunday afternoon/night into Monday with another 5-10" of snow for the Wasatch Mountains, areas favored by a west-northwest flow (Cottonwoods) doing the best. After 10/11 am on Thursday you can start looking at the snow forecast links on the right side of the page for more details. Enjoy!

Diving south

Most of the energy with the Tuesday night into Wednesday storm is forecasted to dive through Nevada with the bulk of the snow staying to the west and south of the Wasatch Front. As of now plan on 3-6" of snow for the Wasatch Mountains above 7,000 ft with the coming storm.
