Note how easterly flow extends from southwest Wyoming to the northern Wasatch Front, as was forecast by the computer models yesterday. This led to a weak downslope wind event this morning from Bountiful through North Ogden. Note the predominantly easterly flow along the western slopes of the Wasatch at 1500 UTC (0900 MDT).
As we suspected yesterday, this has been a fairly benign event. The peak gust reported thus far by any MesoWest station in that area is 37 miles per hour at a site in Farmington. It's nice that the model guidance appears to have become more reliable for helping us discern between benign and high-impact downslope wind events.
If we could only do better with precipitation!
