Today turned out to be a bit of a surprise powder day at the resorts. 8-12″ were reported in the Upper Cottonwoods. After a break in precipitation during the day, an intense front entered the region just a couple hours ago. It’s been absolutely dumping with strong winds at my place in SLC.
Snow should continue through the evening and begin to taper off during the overnight hours. Expect totals of 8-14″ with up to 18″ in the Upper Cottonwoods. Tomorrow will be another powder day. Expect early morning canyon closures before the resorts open.
We’ll have a brief break from tomorrow through Wednesday morning. The next system will being to impact Utah during the day Wednesday. The details aren’t iron out with this system yet, but it looks like another 1-2 ft + is a good bet.
There will be little rest for the weary as yet another system is looking likely for the weekend. We are in one of the better patterns in recent memory and there are no signs of it ending anytime soon. Get out and enjoy the powder and stayed tuned for details on the upcoming storms.
