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!

Last in the series

The last and strongest piece of the series of storms is forecasted to move through northern Utah today and tonight clearing out of the Wasatch front around 9am on Tuesday. The last piece of the storm has sped up so snowfall will be a little less than expected but still plan on another 6-16" for the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains to go along with the 8-20" that has fallen since 5pm Saturday. Total snow since 5pm Saturday in the 14-36" range by 9am on Tuesday.
