Next Week’s Winter Storm

10/7 Thursday 1:35 pm

Models are still in good agreement for next week. A large, potent, cold storm will develop in the northwest and drop into the Great Basin early on Monday. It will work its way across Utah late on Monday. Prefrontal precipitation will be possible beginning early Tuesday morning in our area. Precipitation will be on the increase throughout the day on Tuesday. The system should depart our area by late Wednesday leaving very cold air in its wake.

At the moment, it appears the snow level will be around 9,500 feet early Tuesday morning but will rapidly fall throughout the day. The models are showing a light accumulation of snow down to at least 6,500 feet.

Here are the forecast maps in motion beginning late Monday.




Here is a closer view from the Euro.

At this point, I don’t have a lot of concerns about this storm. One thing I would like to see would be for the storm to slow down and deepen a little farther south before moving into our area. Regardless, it is the first significant winter storm of the season and I am looking forward to many more.

Tomorrow I will be posting twice again with the same format as today. I will cover the weekend in the morning and next week in the afternoon.
