Hope on the Horizon

Posted Sunday, March 19th, 2017 by Peter Veals

It’s been an extraordinary stretch of spring (summer) weather the past few days. We’ve set record highs at Salt Lake City on 3 days, and these highs are equal to the average highs for late May…pretty incredible.

We’ll stay well above average for the early part of the work week, but fortunately there is some hope on the horizon. Temperatures will begin to cool as a we transition to a colder and stormier pattern.

Euro ensemble forecast precipitation at SLC. Looks like it will start stacking up late Tues/early Wed. models.weatherbell.com

Monday and Tuesday will be very warm with the chance of a shower or two. Then Wednesday into Thursday, accumulating snow looks likely at most resorts. Beyond that, the models keep us in a fairly active pattern, so hopefully more snow and no more of these ridiculously warm temps.
