It appears that the back side of the main precipitation band in front of the shortwave trough is working into the area. We should see a wind shift and the models are not handling this trough passage well.
Max temps should be occurring right around now (2 pm). It is possible snow could start up in areas it has stopped and continue on and off through about 8 pm or later. There is also a hint of light snow in some areas tomorrow morning.
The surface maps have been inconsistent from run to run and have made very little sense with reality. So I can only draw my conclusions from the water vapor imagery and the satellite. I just noticed the WPC (weather prediction center) updated their map with another different shortwave now in Utah dividing the state in half vertically. This shortwave apparently broke away from a trough and area of low pressure that existed 3 hours earlier but has now disappeared on their current map. My point is, I can’t see (nor can the models) whether or not something might redevelop or not, there is so much moisture it won’t take a lot of energy to get things going over the next 24 hours or so.
If something new comes up I will post!
