Powder for the Presidents

Posted Monday, February 10th, 2020 by Luke Stone

This is going to be another short post, because I’ve got a lot of work to do, and the forecast is boring. We will have mostly cool and dry weather until Friday, when a weak storm is possible. The latter part of the holiday weekend is what I’m watching more closely. A stronger trough will dig into the intermountain west, bringing the chance for more significant snow. It’s too early for details, but the potential exists for a good powder day Sunday or Monday. It looks like there could be some warming prior to the event, which could screw things up. Some crust at mid elevations from the last mess could also provide some snowpack issues moving forward too. Anyway, here are the NAEFS plumes for Alta for the next 7 days, which show the dry weather until Friday, the likely weak storm, and the possibility of more significant accumulations later in the weekend. Hopefully it turns out better than the last one.
