|We could call this a high amplitude pattern, but for today, it's simply a "wicked pissah!"|
Back in Boston and along the eastern New England coast this is quickly turning into a winter for the ages as multi-day snow accumulations and snow depth on the ground are near, at, or above all-time marks at numerous locations. As of this morning Boston has recorded over 60 inches of snow in 17 days. Measured snow depths as of yesterday evening include 53 inches in Bangor, Maine, which ties their all-time record. The mountains of northern New England are missing out on the heart of the action in the latest storm, but nevertheless, Mt. Mansfield sits at 76 inches, 10 inches ahead of Alta!
And of course, it is snowing across much of New England this morning.
The silver lining here in Utah is that we don't have an inversion and we're at least able to enjoy the warm sunny weather even in the valley. I walked to the bus this morning without a jacket, which seemed preposterous. The overnight low at the base of Alta was 37ºF. There is a weak front coming in for today, so don't let the bluebird morning skies fool you. We'll get some valley showers and some mountain dust on crust in the high elevations starting later this morning. There's a slight threat of showers through tomorrow morning, but other than that, we should be dry through the work week and likely the weekend.
