There's a perplexing radar look this morning as some showers have popped up in the unstable, postfrontal, northwesterly flow over northern Utah.
Satellite imagery shows that this area of precipitation is isolated to our area.
I say perplexing because it is unclear what mechanisms are responsible for the showers. Is the lake playing a role? IT seems the flow direction isn't quite right and that the cloud band may extend to just upstream of the lake shore (see above). How about the Oquirrh Mountains or three-dimensional terrain effects related to other mountains? It's a head scratcher. Any ideas out there?
