The weather is perfect right now. Radar has shown a quasi-stationary precipitation cell immediately downstream over the Wasatch crest and over our area. For a while, it was noticeably clearer west of the Wasatch from our vantage point.
This is just the sort of thing that we're looking for and trying to better understand. Very few studies have examined lee-side precipitation processes.DOW7 deployed and operational in huntsville. Scanning mountains to west. Rain falling at site in lee of Wasatch, but brighter on windward side beyond. @CSWRDOW @uutah #uofuoreo pic.twitter.com/UinhHmocSW— Jim Steenburgh (@ProfessorPowder) November 16, 2017
