Spring Storming

Posted Wednesday, March 24th, 2021 by Steven Mammano

TL;DR – A decent storm will arrive around mid-day tomorrow and stick around through Thursday to freshen things up before high pressure comes back this weekend.

Nowcast – Wednesday saw a nice morning with some pre-frontal gusty winds and colder temperatures moving in this afternoon. Moisture started to build in the valley as clouds moved in and darkened the skies.

Short term – Snow should start about 12pm tomorrow in the mountains, and continue through Thursday. Models show a mean accumulation of about 7-9″, but there is still much uncertainty, as it ranges from 2″ all the way to 13″. But with the storm sticking around for almost a full 24 hours, it is a safe bet to be planning on soft turns for Thursday.

Long term – After this week’s storm, there is not much of significance on the horizon. The Salt Lake Valley will see temperatures in the 60’s next week, and spring skiing might swing into high gear pretty soon. Alta could see temperatures as high as 50 on Sunday and Monday, so get those corn turns in before the season comes to a close!
