This weekend will feature comfortable early season conditions across the entire state. It’ll generally be partly cloudy throughout the weekend with temperatures moderating to near freezing at the bases by Sunday. With last weeks huge dump of snow, all resorts are now open with ample terrain.
As we head into early next week, we’re expecting a period of very cold, unsettled weather. A trough is expected to cross through the region Sunday night and into Monday, followed by a weak shortwave trough. This storm has been trending drier with time, but a lot of uncertainty exists. The NAEFS is still forecasting a spread of 5-30 inches for the Upper Cottonwoods.
The cold may end up being the story of this storm. Below are the forecasted low temperatures for Wednesday. We expect it to be well below zero up in the mountains.
Beyond this system early next week, the models continue to show a stormy, unsettled pattern. Let’s hope another one of these systems goes big !
