Tomorrow, 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.
High, thin clouds offer splintered moonlight, casting a curious glow on our mountains this morning along with relatively mild temperatures registering in the upper 20's. The warm before a little storm has southerly winds bumping into the 20's and 30's at the turn of the new day. The midweek storm was good to the eastern front, delivering 14" of medium density snow to the high country. However, recent warm temperatures and a bit o' sun have transformed all but the highest north facing terrain into a variety of breakable sun crusts with some wind funk thrown in just to keep you on your toes.
Look for increasing clouds, gusty southwest winds, and a scattered snow shower or two that deliver a couple inches of snow overnight. High temperatures climb into the mid 30's with overnight lows dipping into the 20's.
A mostly sunny Easter Sunday is on tap with tranquil weather slated through mid week. A stormy pattern rounds out the work week.
