A Weak cold front passes Mon night into Tue morning with maybe 1” of mountain snow. The better chance for snow is early Wed throughout Wed. There’s decent uncertainty with the Wed storm and totals range from 3” to 12+” as of now, so check back as we get closer.
Conditions are rather miserable along the Wasatch Front but much better in the mountains. Temperatures today for the most part were a bit warmer in the valleys vs. mountains but that will change for tomorrow (Mon) as most mountain sites will be slightly warmer than the valleys. Skies will be partly cloudy becoming mostly cloudy by afternoon. So, head to the mountains if you need a break from the pollution etc. in the valley (just take a bus or carpool).
A relatively dry cold front will move through the area early Tue morning with a chance of maybe 1” of snow with cloudy and windy conditions the rest of Tue.
Some light snow is possible overnight Tue-Wed as a better storm approaches and arrives early Wed with precipitation through much of the day. This fast-moving storm will be accompanied by windy conditions, but snow amounts from the different forecast models and ensemble members span a wide spread as of this writing. The graphic Alex posted yesterday hasn’t changed much so depending on the storm moisture and trajectory, we could see 2-6” or 8-14”. Below are the SREF ensemble members to give an idea of the spread and likely precipitation accumulations. Check back tomorrow to see if models and ensembles begin to converge on a solution.
High pressure will build back in Thu-Fri with a storm beginning to impact the west on Sat, but this far out the Sat storm appears to deteriorate by the time it hits northern UT.
