We’re out exploring southern Utah. Recognize this view of Monument Valley made famous in Forest Gump?… Pic taken 4/20/2022
Wednesday – 20 Apr 2022 – 7:50pm
At Stevens Field the high temp this afternoon was 67. The low this morning was 38. The peak wind at the airfield yesterday afternoon was 38mph and today’s peak wind was 27mph.
** Be careful with fire! Winds will get gusty in wind prone areas every afternoon between 11 and noon. **
Precip summary… There has been no recent precip.
Through tomorrow a flat ridge will stay over the region and give us dry and breezy weather.
The next system will move through Friday and Saturday morning. Clouds, winds, and scattered showers will increase Friday afternoon. The snow level will start around 9,500ft and then drop down to 7,000ft by sunrise on Saturday. Unfortunately, the northern mountains are favored – we’ll just get the scraps and wind.
Hit and miss showers will continue to move through the mountains on Saturday and Sunday.
** Like all forecast products, we compare these to other products, compare them to recent events, compare them to our experience with similar systems during this time of year, consider how the system will interact with our terrain (a biggie!), and then make appropriate adjustments. **
