Answer: Nevada, and then eastern Utah and Colorado
As I watch the evolution of our latest western weather system, I am reminded of the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. You know the one where the porridge is not too hot and not too cold, but just right. What I wouldn't give for a weather system that is not too weak and not too strong, but just right.
The problem with the storm that was hyped for northern Utah over the past few days is that it was basically too strong. The upper-level trough dug deeply into the southwest, the system stalled, and the large-scale dynamics is falling apart before the cold air gets to northern Utah at the surface. The loop below tells the tale. Note in particular how the precipitation over Nevada falls apart today while things then explode to our east over Colorado. Easy come, easy go.
We'll see some snow showers at times through Thursday, but not enough to get me excited given the fact it's falling on a 0–2 inch base. If you want skiing this weekend, road trip to Colorado. What can I say? Colorado is my Daddy.
