Spring Laps

Posted Friday, March 5th, 2021 by Ben Klein

TL;DR: An awesome bluebird day has been served up to send us into the weekend! Beginning tomorrow morning winds will pick up as a dry storm system will pass through.

Nowcast: Eagle point was the only resort to pick up any respectable accumulation with 4 inches in the last 24 hours as the storm yesterday was focused south of the Wasatch. Today the mountain temperatures in the Wasatch should push upper 30’s to low 40’s, and the winds will be light. Beginning around 6 am tomorrow a very unorganized splitting trough should bring cloudy skies, a small chance for snow showers and wind that could reach 40-55 mph on the ridgelines.

Short-Term Forecast: High pressure will take control after Saturday giving us more of these calm spring days. The weekend should generally be dry. If we get no snow at least the wind tomorrow should clean out the air in valley.

High pressure is getting pushed east by a trough that could bring some chances for light accumulation next week. (tropicaltidbits.com)

Long-Term Forecast: The next chance for snow will be for northern Utah on Tuesday heading into Wednesday, but it’s looking to be mostly scraps as the storm is going to weaken as it moves inland. Many chances for light accumulations beyond that and no strong storms on the horizon, but that can change. *fingers crossed* Spring is making way fast, but i’m here to enjoy it!
