Sunny, Cold, and Dry

Posted Tuesday, February 18th, 2020 by Kevin Dougherty

Not much to report in terms of snow here. The title pretty much gives it away. Hopefully, everyone enjoyed their President’s Day weekend and took advantage of the bluebird powder day. Even the Ikon Pass holders that were blacked out on Saturday and Sunday got to join in on the fun.

Short Term:
The rest of the week, Northern Utah can expect to stay dry. With the passing short wave trough that is lacking moisture and the dynamics to get any precipitation going, we mostly will see some mid-to-upper level clouds with colder temperatures in the mid-30s during the day and upper teens at night.

Long Term:
As we head into the weekend, temperatures will begin to warm due to an upper-level ridge pushing into the region. Temperatures should make for some comfortable ski conditions. Southern Utah has a chance to see some precipitation Saturday and Sunday as a Pacific low moves across the southwest. The next chance for snow in Northern Utah is Sunday night into Monday due to a different system moving in from the Pacific northwest. Way too early for snowfall estimates based on disagreements in the models, but definitely something to keep an eye as we head into the weekend.

Thanks for reading, hopefully next time I will have better news for you all!
