Fresh Snow

June surprised Utah with some fresh snow at levels above 8,000 feet. I haven't seen the snow yet, but it has been windy all afternoon in Vernal, Utah. We must be experiencing some sort of downslope wind storm coming off the Uintah mountains from the system that moved through northern Utah.

At the Mountain Meteorology Lab you can see snow in the distant mountains. That white stuff wasn't there yesterday.

The most recent image from Alta Ski Resort shows it's pretty white up there. My professor said he put his skis away for the season. I wonder it he'll get them out for this unexpected summer snow storm.

The winter weather advisory is still in affect for the Wasatch and Uintah mountains this evening. Spanish Fork got 0.3 inches of rain out of this storm, much less than Salt Lake. The airport got over an inch of rain in the last 24 hours!
