Winter Returns

Posted Wednesday, April 11th, 2018 by Trey Alvey

After a relatively warm period over the past several days, a strong cold front will move through the state early tomorrow morning. A frontal band of heavy precipitation will bring snow levels crashing down to the benches and likely even valley floors (though accumulations on pavement should be limited). After the initial burst of precipitation, a brief lull will be followed by cold, moist northwesterly flow. For accumulations I’m expecting 7-14 inches for most areas mid-mountain and higher. The post-frontal wild card could also certainly bump totals higher in the Cottonwoods.

ECMWF liquid water forecasted through Friday evening

Conditions will rapidly warm up over the weekend making way for some very nice spring skiing. Another storm may impact Northern Utah Monday-Tuesday.
