Weak Storms

Posted Tuesday, January 12th, 2021 by CJ Sawyer

TL;DR: Weak storms continue with a possible pattern change the second part of next week.

Nowcast: Inversions continue in Northern Utah with the mountains relatively warm for this time of the year. A weak storm tomorrow brings a chance for light snow to the Wasatch.

Short-Term Forecast: In the short term, conditions continue to be unfavorable for meaningful precipitation/snow. A weak wave move through the flow Wednesday with maybe an inch or 2 in the mountains. The NAM 3km model seen below is a little more optimistic with higher precipitation amounts.

Long-Range Forecast: After Wednesday, a few more weak storms are possible during the weekend with little accumulation. Looking ahead, it looks like a pattern change maybe coming in the second part of next week with a longwave trough digging down into the Western US. The question is will it just be cold or will we have moisture to work with? Stay tuned!
