Refresher

Posted Sunday, April 1st, 2018 by Peter Veals

This weekend was spring skiing at its best. Hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather! Nothing big on the horizon storm-wise, but we’ll get a nice little refresher tomorrow (Monday).

An upper-level shortwave trough will move through quickly on Monday with a cold front at the surface arriving sometime around mid-day. Temps will drop quickly, with a band of precipitation moving through, and  snow levels falling to the valley floor by evening. The precip looks to end quickly after the front moves through though, so snowfall amounts will be pretty meager. I’d expect 3-6″ in the upper Cottonwoods, with 1-4″ elsewhere.

We warm up and dry out through the week, with a storm looking increasingly likely on Friday, and maybe into the weekend.
