Well, the prognosis is still not good for snow in Utah over the next 5 days. Some flurries are possible Saturday, and thats about it. The one silver lining to all the warm weather and clouds has been that weak layers in the backcountry are healing. Other than that, though, I can’t think of much good that is coming from this pattern.
It doesn’t really feel like it, but we are only slightly behind average for snow in the higher elevations of the Wasatch right now. Most stations are 75-90% of their normal snowpack water content. Up by Logan they are above average. If you want a deep snowpack you can drive to Jackson though. They have been doing fairly well the last couple weeks, with 50% more season snowfall than the Cottonwoods.
In long range model dreamland there is a good, wet trough making its way into Utah on Thursday next week in the deterministic 12Z GFS. Who knows if it will happen. We can hope..
