Sunday, April 17th is the last of our regularly scheduled daily forecasts for the western Uinta mountains. But, don't let your heart be troubled... I'll continue to update this page with intermittent forecasts if Mother Nature decides to keep the winter switch turned on.
Last night's storm raced out of the Gulf of Alaska and slid through the region right around dinnertime, slamming into the mountains like a cross-fire hurricane whilst delivering a solid 10" of snow with .80" H2O... pretty average snow densities for these parts. Yesterday's cow-tipping southwest winds switched to the west and northwest lockstep with the cold front and currently blow 30-50 mph near the high peaks. Scattered snow showers linger over the area and finger numbing temperatures register in the single digits and low teens. Riding and turning conditions went from zero to hero overnight!
A break in the action this morning brings scattered snow showers which stack up another couple inches of snow. Northwest winds blowing in the 40's near the high peaks will be a nuisance. Winter-like temperatures don't stray much from where we're at this morning and overnight lows crash into negative territory.
Another shot of snow is expected tonight, with unsettled weather on tap for Wednesday and Thursday. The work week wraps up with a drying trend.
