Down to the Wire

Our multipart storm has finally arrived, cutting it as close to the wire fore a white Christmas as possible.  The radar image below shows the two main parts of the system that will affect us today.  The first is bringing a "wintery mix" the Salt Lake Valley this morning, while the next part extends across northwest Utah and will move in within a couple of hours.

For the valley, we're going to need that 2nd piece to deliver.  Snow is just starting to stick on the benches, but we're not seeing much in the way of white stuff on the ground on the valley floor.

Keep your fingers crossed.

All forecasts point to a spectacular bluebird day on Christmas.  It should be gorgeous for reveling in the valley or heading to the mountains.  Ho Ho Ho.


  1. Apparently another storm is on its way tomorrow ?

  2. Christmas day was a beautiful sunny day in Park City.
