Pow Leftovers and Sun

Posted Sunday, January 2nd, 2022 by Nic Hofmann

TL;DR: Time to enjoy the sun through the beginning of the week, get the storm leftovers as another refill is in the works for the middle of the week.

Short-Term: There is a high-pressure ridge sitting over Utah that will stick around until the middle of the week. Skiing will be great with clear skies and light breezes Monday. With the high-pressure sitting over us we could see some temperature inversion through the beginning of the week trapping pollutants in the valley. If you’re heading out to the backcountry dangerous avalanche conditions exist, be aware and consult The Utah Avalanche Center for a full avalanche forecast and to read observations from fellow skiers.

Long-Term: Tuesday evening a jet from the North West could bring some snow to Northern Utah. Snow for central Utah is uncertain and depends upon how far South the jet reaches. There is much disagreement amongst the models at this time but this midweek storm could bring 3-12” Northern Utah and maybe the central Wasatch if some shortwave troughs can develop. We will see more high pressure through the end of the week with a trough building off the West coast.
