TL;DR: Warm Weather to be followed by a short storm tonight/Thursday; Warm temps again Friday with a fast-paced Northern storm on Saturday
Nowcast: What a wonderful couple of days we’ve had this week. Warm temps and sunny skies reminding us that Spring is on it’s way. Temps were in the mid to upper 40s at resort bases and mid to upper 20’s along the ridgelines. Some thin upper-level clouds developed this afternoon and winds have remain calm from the southeast.
Short-Term Forecast: A low pressure system will make it’s way across Southern Utah/Northern Arizona tonight and Thursday morning (pictured below). This will bring anywhere from a dusting to 3″ of snow in the Central Wasatch. The low pressure will be immediately followed by a building ridge Thursday afternoon leading to another bout of warm fair weather on Friday.
Here’s a current satallite image of the aforementioned trough centered over the Sierras/Southern Nevada.
Long-Term Forecast: Another chance for snow on Saturday as a fast-moving trough will make its way across Northern Utah. However, small accumulations are expected and most of the precipitation will be confined to more Northern Utah and Wyoming. This short cycle will once again be followed by warm and dry weather on Sunday.
