Many ski areas are now closed to uphill travel in order to prepare for winter operations. Resort uphill travel policies can be found HERE>.
There's no rest for the wicked. Another large, churning Pacific storm is on the doorstep and our partners at the SLC National Weather Service have issued a Winter Storm Watch for late tonight through Thursday morning.
Ahead of the storm, mountain temperatures are near 30°F up high and near 40°F at the mid-elevations. Mt Ogden winds are gusting to 60mph while even the mid-elevation anemometers are gusting into the 30s and 40s.
The Ogden mountains were hammered with 1.5-2.0" of precipitation over the weekend that translated into 8-12" of heavy dense snow. The Ogden mountains will again receive a significant amount of precipitation with this storm.
For today, we'll have an intermittent snow shower here and there with mountain temps rising to the mid-30s up high, the mid-40s down low. Winds will be southerly, blowing 30-35mph with gusts to 50, perhaps higher. Snowfall should begin in earnest tomorrow morning with much of the precipitation coming in on a warm, southerly flow. We may see high fluctuating snow levels (7500'-8500') and heavy dense snow until frontal passage on Wednesday afternoon. 12-24"+ is expected through midday Thursday. Strong southerly winds will accompany the snowfall through midday Wednesday.
