Back to April

Posted Tuesday, April 11th, 2017 by Peter Veals

Oh what a day it was on Sunday…I had one of my best powder days of the season, and I heard many other skiers saying the same. Some bold claims were made:

 

Unfortunately, after our brief blast of January conditions, the April weather is coming back. We will get brushed by a storm Tuesday, which will bring us mainly just some clouds. Wednesday looks to be beautiful, sunny, and warm, with above average temperatures…definitely the best day to get outside this week.

The GFS model forecast for Wednesday…big ridge of high pressure with blue skies and warm temperatures.

Clouds will begin to increase late Thursday as our next storm moves in on Thursday night, which does not look overly impressive. It should be good for some snow in the mountains and a cool-down, but probably not a powder day. The storm looks to exit the area early Friday, and the temps begin to warm up again.

Beyond that, the next potential for precip could be early next week, but confidence is low on that. Most of the remaining open ski areas in the Wasatch will have their closing days on Sunday, so make sure to get on it! Snowbird, as usual, will likely be open through at least Memorial Day.
