The Train of Storms Continue…

Posted Sunday, January 12th, 2020 by Eric McNamee

TL;DR: A continuation of what we have seen over the past week. Powder days and feet of snow in sight. 1-2 feet of snow likely in most mountain locations through Wednesday, a little break midweek, right back into the action the end of the week.

Currently, I’m enjoying the hospitality of friends with light snow showers falling outside due to unstable northwesterly flow. Clouds are starting to clear and I expect this to continue through the remainder of the day. By tomorrow morning, we’ll have another shortwave moving through the state, bringing more snow.

Short-Term: As mentioned above, we’re going to have another shortwave trough move through tomorrow. This will bring another wave of snow to the northern part of the state. This wave should bring around a foot of snow or so to locations that favor in northwesterly flow (looking at you cottonwoods). Another shortwave will move through Tuesday, bringing possibly more snow than what we’ll see tomorrow. A weak ridge will build in midweek.

Long-term: By midweek, a shortwave ridge will build in. This will allow for bluebird days Weds/Thurs. By Friday, another shortwave trough will dig into the interior west. This will bring another good chance of snow to the northern part of the state. Current amounts are not certain, but it’s looking good! Until then, make sure to stay tuned to your favorite ski blog… Utah Ski Weather.
