And then there was Snow

It may be hard to believe, but this time yesterday's high temperature was 76 degrees at the airport. Right now it's 30. Since yesterday we've lived through extremely gusty winds (over 90 mph gusts in Parley's Canyon), a dust storm, muddy rain, and snow. The only thing that would have made it worse is a wildfire. Oh, wait. That happened too. Lots of active weather, which made for an exciting day--flight delays, accidents, jammed freeways, downed trees, "hey Dad, where is the trampoline". A power outage in Murray caused the train I was on to be delayed because the track switcher thing wasn't working. Add those delays to the delays in the morning and I spend a grand total of seven on public transit. Perhaps my worst commute day ever.

In Provo this morning there wasn't any snow accumulation. At the Eyring Science Center there was 0.23 inches of rain. In Spanish Fork my home only got 0.12 inches.

This morning on campus I was happy to see 6.5 inches of snow! Sure has been a long time since I've seen the white stuff.




CoCoRaHS observations show quite a bit of snow across the valley. It looks like the forecast was more or less right for most of the valley.
My Grandpa was begging me for some snow. Looks like Logan got a good share of it too...



From the radar you can see that it's still snowing over much of the northern part of the state.

The camera display shows the snow too...


How long will the snow last? By the late afternoon.

Thursday through Sunday our temperatures will creep back up to more spring appropriate temperatures.

My mom sent me this picture. Looks like it's snowing in southern parts of Utah County now.
