Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Salt Lake City UT 957 PM MST Fri Feb 26 2021
SYNOPSIS. The cold storm system will move southeast across the area overnight into Saturday. Dry conditions return on Sunday as the storm system exits and a ridge builds over the region through early next week.
DISCUSSION. The secondary cold front associated with the best dynamics aloft lived up to its potential with heavy bursts of snow across northern portions of the forecast area this evening. The excitement is over for northern portions of the forecast area for now as we are looking at somewhat of a hiatus between this first 500mb trough axis sliding to our east and waiting for the second trough axis to move in late Saturday morning. Snow showers won't quit completely as this air mass is quite cold and unstable so scattered snow showers will occur through the night, especially east southeast of the GSL as the winds aloft become more west northwesterly.
Farther south, the 700mb baroclinic band will move south southeast across central portions of Utah, with some accumulation snow in the mountains. Little if any precip is expected farther south.
The coverage of snow should increase between sunrise and mid morning across northern portions of the forecast as this second trough axis approaches. The areas favoring a west to northwest flow are expected to receive the most snow accumulations. This second trough passage will also bring additional snow to the central mountains and adjacent western valleys.
The current forecast is in good shape so no updates required at this time.
AVIATION. VFR conditions expected to return around 06Z as snow along the cold front moves east. There is a 30% chance of a brief snow shower producing MVFR conditions overnight as N/NE winds turn W/NW at 10-15 knots. Snow showers will become more likely by late morning and afternoon with temporary periods of IFR conditions expected.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
