It was another wintry day in the mountains yesterday with periods of heavy snowfall, gusty winds, and very good powder riding conditions. Today's warmer temperatures will make the snow more seasonal and damp.
Since Monday afternoon the Logan area mountains have picked up well over two and a half feet of snow (Tony Grove Snotel reports 3.7" SWE ) with the most falling at upper elevations.
Today, snow showers are likely in the afternoon. It'll be cloudy with a high of 41 F and southerly winds will blow 11 to 21mph. Some thunder is possible. Not much snow is expected today but the mountains could pick up another 2-4" tonight. Sunday will be a bit cooler and breezy with high pressure returning on Monday.
