Well, the totals so far include 20 inches of 4% blower at Alta, with 8 inches of that falling overnight. Conditions yesterday were awesome, and figure to be all time today if you can get to places that didn’t get skied yesterday. The Upper Cottonwoods, not surprisingly, did the best, and have exceeded our foreast totals. Other areas got around 6″. The trough producing this precipitation will continue to elongate in an east-west orientation. This elongation will keep weak synoptic lift going over Utah and as a result snow showers should continue through Tueday afternoon, favoring the southern half of the Wasatch. Air temperatures look to remain bitter cold during that time as well.
I expect that areas north of I-80 will only get 1-4 more inches from these remaining showers through Tuesday, while areas south will see more like 2-5. And of course 3-7 inches for the Cottonwoods.
From Wedenesday forward the trough elongates enough to cut off, leaving a weak low pressure system spinning over Southern Utah. This system may produce some snow over the Arizona border. Otherwise, things actually look fairly dry over Utah over the next week with ridging over us.
