Winter Cometh Tomorrow

Get out and enjoy the mild weather today because big changes are coming tomorrow morning when a strong surface cold front pushes into northern Utah.

It's a quick moving system, so I don't expect major accumulations, but the valley will see some flakes, perhaps enough to coat the ground in a few places, and the mountains might get a couple of inches.  The real story here will be the cold.  In the wake of the front, 700-mb temperatures drop to about -11ÂșC tomorrow afternoon, which I believe is the coldest airmass we've seen so far this fall.

I've been scanning the model forecasts for the next week looking for a big storm that will add to the upper-elevation snowpack but right now they call for us to just get glancing blows from storms that pass to the south or north.  Keep your fingers cross that one of those storms ends up coming more directly to northern Utah.
