Help Transform Mountain Weather and Climate Prediction

If you are a regular reader of this blog or just an occasional visitor, I hope you have enjoyed our discussions of mountain weather and climate.  Perhaps you also peruse and take advantage of some of our weather forecasting products at or  

If you like the Wasatch Weather Weenies blog and are interesting in helping us transform weather and climate prediction in mountainous regions, especially in the Wasatch Mountains and northern Utah, click here and consider making a donation to our Mountain Meteorology Fund. Created by an anonymous donor in 2005, the Mountain Meteorology Fund supports education and research in mountain weather and climate at the University of Utah.  

Now is a great time to give as I will personally match the first $500 in contributions.  So, consider a donation (typically tax deductable) and help us address challenges ranging from powder prediction in the Wasatch Mountains to helping Utah prepare for a warming world.  


  1. What will the money be used for exactly? I think expanding the University of Washingtons WRF-GFS over Utah to include a 1.33 km domain would be money well spent.

    1. These are donations to support weather and climate prediction research at the University of Utah. Those who would like to see a high-resolution modeling system for northern Utah should drop me a note or give me a call.

  2. I would love to see a high-resolution WRF in Utah like the one Trevor use to run or help the NWS improve their WRF
