Salt Lake Mountain Weather

Friday, February 5, 2016 - 8:26am
Forecaster: Mark
Discussion:

The tail end of an upper trough is currently dragging east southeast through Wyoming at this time. Attendant upper level jet support remains just enough to maintain light snow and snow showers through shortly after dawn allowing additional light accumulations through that time. With further downstream progression of this trough snow showers will end and a gradual thinning of mid and low level cloud cover can be expected by this afternoon.

Extended Outlook:

A ridge of high pressure will be the dominant weather feature into next week. It will bring dry and stable conditions across the area with a substantial warm up at high elevations. Developing inversions will limit the warm up in valley locations.
