Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Joe Nicholls

We've seen some decent rainfall amounts in the area over the last 24 hours, and the air mass remains moist and unstable to support more showers and thunderstorms today. Clouds and mainly some light showers this morning and early afternoon, then the potentially heavier showers and thunderstorms mid to late afternoon. The trend through Saturday will be for decreasing activity, but the models do keep enough moisture and instability for a couple of afternoon and evening…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Tuesday, July 25, 2017

Joe Nicholls

I'm seeing a couple of fairly active weather days with the moist, unstable air mass and with a fairly weak air flow, we should see some areas of decent rainfall, especially near any thunderstorms. The clouds will also keep the temperatures held down. We should dry out and stablize Friday and Saturday, then back into the isolated to widely scattered thunderstorm cov erage on Sunday.

Joe is calling for a low chance of thunderstorms from 9 am to 4 pm, a moderate…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Tuesday, July 11, 2017

Joe Nicholls

Shaping up to be another fairly active weather day with the lifted index of -3 by late morning or early afternoon, and a weak upper level system over Utah that is expected to move across us today. A little more stable tomorrow with the passage of this system, but I don't think we totally get rid of the chance of an afternoon or evening thunderstorm through the weekend. I do see the air mass warming up again. Welcome to summer!

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Monday, July 10, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The satellite pictures show a fair amount of cloudiness circulating around the high pressure, and the air mass over us through Wednesday is quite unstable. So, expect more showers and thunderstorms today through Wednesday, and with more moisture in the air mass, should see some rain with these showers and thunderstorms. A little less activity Thursday thru Saturday, but can't take the chance out completely.

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Friday, July 7, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The weather balloon data this morning shows an increase in moisture, and it's a little more unstable. So, a little more active today and tomorrow with more coverage of showers and thunderstorms. Rainfall is expected to be light and spotty, with gusty winds and lightning the main threats with the thunderstorms. A little bit of a decrease on Sunday, but we see a higher risk of showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Thursday, July 6, 2017

Joe Nicholls

Starting to see a little moisture spreading over the western periphery of the high pressure, so a slight chance of a thunderstorm today, and a little higher tomorrow and Saturday. The high pressure will weaken some early next week, and shift a little to the east, allowing for a little more moisture leading to an increase in showers and thunderstorms.

Today - Sunny, with a high near 87. East southeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The high pressure is fairly strong over the Great Basin, and just enough moisture and instability for an isolated thunderstorm in the afternoon or early evening. The models do tend to gradually increase the monsoon flow in the extended period, but at least through the weekend, it's fairly weak and any activity is looking isolated.

Today - Sunny, with a high near 88. Calm wind becoming west around 5 mph in the…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Monday, July 3, 2017

Joe Nicholls

There were a number of showers and thunderstorms over western Colorado and eastern Utah yesterday, and the boundary is still left over the area this morning, as evident with the lingering clouds.I believe we'll see more activity this afternoon, and like yesterday, the bases will be fairly high so rainfall amounts spotty and light. A drier and more stable air mass will be over us tomorrow and Wednesday. By the end of the week, we'll see more of an increase in afternoon and…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Friday, June 30, 2017

Joe Nicholls

A drier and more stable air mass is over us this morning, and it's a little chilly with much of the area dipping into the upper 30s. We'll be warming through the period, especially for much of next week. There is a weak weather system that will generate a couple of high based thunderstorms on Sunday, so I'll include a slight chance, but wouldn't alter any plans.

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Thursday, June 29, 2017

Joe Nicholls

One more upper level system over the northern Rockies will move southeastward bringing some clouds, and again a chance of a couple of showers or a thunderstorm this afternoon. A drier air mass with higher pressure developing over the area this weekend through early next week and it's looking like a really nice stretch of weather.



Joe is calling for a Low chance of thunderstorms from 4 pm to Midnight.

Low pressure is over Alberta and will push a system or two down across us with one this afternoon, and another tomorrow afternoon and evening. I'll keep the slight chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm in the forecast. We'll dry out Friday and we should have nice weather this weekend into early next week.

Today - High of 81, Red Flag Warning.

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Joe Nicholls

A weak front is moving across northern Utah, and will make it to us this afternoon and evening. There are some showers and a thunderstorm over northern Utah, but the rain isn't reaching the ground (virga) and these are pretty scattered. I'll keep a chance this afternoon and evening, and again for a brief period tomorrow afternoon. A little cooler weather tomorrow through Friday, then warming Saturday through early next week with minimal to no thunderstorm activity. …

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Monday, June 26, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The axis of the high pressure aloft is over Utah this morning, but will be weakening over the next 24 hours with a weak upper level system or two pushing this high pressure further south. I see brief periods tomorrow and Wednesday when the air mass is unstable enough to support a thunderstorm, but honestly, the air mass is lacking some moisture to work with and we'll be cooling off through mid to late in the week. Right now, at best, only a couple of isolated…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Friday, June 23, 2017

Joe Nicholls

We saw a little activity early yesterday afternoon, but most of it shifted down toward I-70 by mid to late afternoon. A cooler, drier air mass is over us this morning and we should have a couple of nice weather days. We'll be warming up through Monday and Tuesday, then a weak front will move across us Tuesday and early Wednesday bringing a slight chance of a thunderstorm. The next couple of days look awesome!

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Thursday, June 22, 2017

Joe Nicholls

It was a fairly active day in the region yesterday, not a lot of precipitation reports, but a couple and there were thunderstorms. The air mass is unstable enough for a chance of a thunderstorm, but looking more isolated today. Definitely a more stable air mass tomorrow through the weekend, so it's looking nice and it'll be cooler than the last couple of days.

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Wednesday, June 21, 2017

The first full day of summer!

Joe Nicholls

The air mass remains quite warm, but the air mass is fairly unstable. So, like yesterday, we'll see the heating help generate some thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. A little less activity tomorrow, then a drier more stable air mass will follow a cool front and this should result in nice weather through the coming weekend.

There is a low chance of thunderstorms from Noon to 8 pm.

There is low chance of thunderstorms from 4 pm to Midnight.

A warm air mass will be over us for the next couple of days, but I also see an increase in moisture and a less stable air mass. There are a couple of showers and thunderstorms into northern Utah this morning, and as we heat up later this afternoon and evening, we'll see a couple of thunderstorms into our area. Now, not widespread enough to change plans, but enough of a chance to keep aware that a couple…

Joe Nicholls

We'll have another nice weather day at the resort, but as the heat builds over the West, we'll see a scattering of afternoon and evening thunderstorms tomorrow through Thursday. A drier, cooler air mass will move into the area Friday through the weekend, as a system moves across the northern Rockies.

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Pay Day Friday, June 17, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The air mass remains dry, but with a little instability to the air mass this afternoon and evening, could see an isolated thunderstorm and the same with tomorrow. A hotter air mass moves into the area next week, and could see a little increase in the chance of a brief afternoon or early evening thunderstorm.

The satellite images show the main flow into the Pacific Northwest with a system clipping us on Saturday bringing a slight chance of an isolated thunderstorm. We heat up next week, but with the heat will come the chance of a couple of afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Nothing widespread, just a brief period when there could be a thunderstorm develop.
