I woke up this morning and it was raining here at our house (we live in Park City). I was curious so I pulled up the live, controllable cam feed from our Summit Cam and it looks like there are a few patches of white stuff up there, check out the screen shot I got! I then pullled up our weather forecast from this morning and here it is:
The next system will be moving across the area today with the snow level lowering to the base this afternoon and evening. The snow showers will decrease around midnight, and we'll have a break through much of Monday. The clouds will increase tomorrow afternoon with a chance of a couple of showers, but the more significant increase comes tomorrow night and snow likely on Tuesday. The coldest part of the air mass will be over later Tuesday through early Wednesday.
Looking at the details, it shows snow levels starting up top, but lowering to 7,000 feet by this evening with accumulations of 2 inches tomorrow, 4-7 inches on Tuesday and a trace to 2 inches on Wednesday. And, with colder temperatures, hopefully we can crank up the snow guns and help mother nature out with some additional white stuff. I talked with our Mountain Operations Manager on Friday and he said they were chomping at the bit to start things up, and with these temps I know that they'll fire up as soon as the temps allow. Speaking of temperatures, our snowmaking manager, spent most of last week upgrading and adding additional weather stations. Because of this, our weather page will not have current conditions available for a few days, I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but once we get the new stations implemented, we'll have a lot more weather information than we had before - thanks for your hard work on this project Al!
