Salt Lake Mountain Weather

Thursday, December 18, 2014 - 9:23am
Forecaster: Evelyn
Discussion:

A moist, weak westerly flow will keep skies partly to mostly cloudy today and tonight.  A weak disturbance Friday night could bring an inch or two of low density snow to the mountains.  

Extended Outlook:

Major changes start by mid-day Sunday, when warm air advection in a strong northwesterly flow moves into northern Utah.  While it's still 3 days out, computer models are hinting at the heaviest precipitation north of I-80, with the potential of up to two inches of water equivalent for areas that do well with northwest flow, like Logan and Powder Mountain, by Tuesday morning.  South of I-80, about 1/2 that amount.  Rain/snow line may rise to 7,500 or 8,000' at times.  Winds will be strong.

Much colder temperatures are in the forecast for the middle of next week, with the possibility of snow.
