The storm ended yesterday around 9 a.m. with total snowfall amounts of 3-6 inches of snow (0.2-0.6 inches of water).
This morning, temperatures are hovering mostly in upper teens and low 20s F. Winds have increased some since yesterday and are blowing 11-14 mph with gusts up to 37 mph from the southwest.
Today will be noticeably warmer than yesterday with temperatures rising into the mid and upper 20s F. Lower elevations will have temperatures near freezing. Winds from the southwest will increase this afternoon averaging 20-30 mph with gusts at upper elevations reaching 55 mph.
Snow conditions and coverage are fantastic, especially for Nov 30th. Total snow depths above 7000 ft are 16-25 inches.
Tomorrow will have even stronger winds from the southwest ahead of another storm with snowfall beginning late tomorrow afternoon. It will be a fast moving storm with a lot of water that could bring 6-12 inches of snow.
From Ogden to the central Wasatch to the Provo mountains, we have received several excellent observations. You can find them HERE.
Please keep these reports coming.
There were many slides reported further north near SLC where more snow fell. Similar slides are in store for the Provo area mountains when another storm arrives tomorrow. Below is a photo (S. Thackeray) of one from Mineral Fork in Big Cottonwood Canyon at 7,800 ft.
