Persistent Thanksgiving Storm

Posted Thursday, November 28th, 2019 by Tom Gowan

Quick update: The current storm has already dumped a healthy dose of snow on mountains across the state. The winners so far appears to be Snowbasin and Alta with 40″.

The plume of moisture accompanied by a persistent south west flow will continue to meander across the state through the day tomorrow. Right now it’s shifted a bit to the west, but models have it swinging back to the east later tonight. I expect a period of heavy precip overnight everywhere, but areas that have done the best over the last couple days will continue to do so through tomorrow evening.

Later tomorrow the flow will finally shift to the W/NW. This should lead to a good period of snow, especially over the Cottonwoods. Overall, I expect another 1-2ft in the mountains across the state.

We gradually dry out on Saturday and remain dry through Sunday night. A weak system may clip northern Utah on Monday. Next chance of a substantial system appears to be towards the end of next week.

Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy the powder this weekend!
