What an end to SNOW-vember!

Posted Saturday, November 30th, 2019 by Julie Cunningham

TL;DR: Dry weekend with a chance of snow overnight on Monday. Avalanche warning until 6AM Sunday.

Storm Totals

Well, it seems like an early November without snow was worth the wait. As mentioned yesterday, Alta is the winner with a reported 67” snow total, with 12” in the past 24 hours. Brighton is close behind with a 62” storm total, and Solitude and Park City follow with 46” and 49” respectively. 

Forecast

The NWS has an Avalanche Warning issued for the southern and central Wasatch and the western Uintas until 6AM Sunday. Check out the Utah Avalanche Center website for more details, as it seems much of the mountains in Utah are under High or Considerable avalanche danger. Be safe out there!

Clouds have cleared up a great deal since yesterday as the low pressure system tracks east to bring snow and rain to the Northeast. We can expect the weather here to dry out with highs in the upper 30s in the valley until clouds move in overnight Sunday. There’s no threat of precipitation until Monday night as a weak ridge dominates over the next couple days. Keep checking back here for more details, but right now it doesn’t look like we’ll get much snow — maybe a few inches. In the long-range, we’re keeping an eye on a potential storm for next weekend. More details to come.

Enjoy the powder!!
