Cold air pushed across the Wasatch Mountains this afternoon, initiating the development of easterly downslope winds at the University of Utah. Temperatures have declined steadily since just after 11 am and you can see the arrival of the airmass from the east in the meteogram below as there is a sharp drop in dewpoint (green line) and increase in easterly winds. Temperatures are now in the low 20s with winds gusting into to 28 mph. BRRRR!!!!
It looks like I'll have a long, cold wait for the bus this afternoon!
