|Even the Avenues got some last night|
As is often the case in cold northwesterly flow, we weren't just dealing with lake effect, but a variety of phenomenon including a large-scale precipitation band that rumbled through the state, some post-frontal convection, and some bonafide lake bands. The loop below is hourly and a little jumpy, but it does a pretty good job of summarizing the many different types of precipitation features that brought snow to the area.
For the lake-effect aficionados, a very nice lake band developed over the southeast corner of the lake and pounded the Oquirrhs. I suspect there was some lightning produced by some of the stronger cells.
For now, our brief flirtation with winter is over. A high amplitude ridge will be building over the state in the wake of this storm, bringing gorgeous fall weather for the weekend and early next week. Enjoy!
