With snow winding down in the mountains (but not completely over), here is a look at how a few folks fared from this storm:
Ben Lomond (Northern Wasatch): 6″
So it was a pretty impressive event, especially when you consider the fact that most of this snow fell in about 10 hours. As I mentioned in my previous post, there were some very heavy snowfall rates during the day today. Not too bad for a storm that looked mediocre in Saturday’s compuer model runs…as I said, if our forecast is gonna bust, I’m glad when it busts on the high side.
Suffice to say, the skiing is going to be quite good at the PC resorts and in the Cottonwoods tomorrow. Snow showers will taper off through the day, with additional light accumulations. Temperatures will be comfortable, and winds will be light. Then for the rest of the week, the dreaded ridge returns. This means warm temperatures in the mountains, and inversions in the valleys.
Long Term: there is a lot of uncertainty in the models after Saturday. The GFS and Euro have trended toward not giving us a storm in the early-week timeframe, but this doesn’t mean much at this point. I have faith that we’ll get something during that period.
