Early Storm Dumps Snow On Utah Mountains

Early Snow at Alta Ski ResortA cold storm frosted Utah mountains with early snow last night, but temperatures are expected to warm back up and we should enjoy delightful fall weather through the rest of this week.

The Salt Lake Tribune has this article about the storm. Here are excerpts:

They are "big flakes, and there are lots of low clouds," said Alta Lodge hotelier Marcus Dippo. "Clearly, early to mid-September is a reasonable time for a first snow. This is that beautiful time of year when the fall colors are happening, with the snow on the vegetation poking through."

Weather Service forecaster Pete Wilensky said Alta saw around six inches at mid-mountain. A Weather Service camera shows about 5 inches on a picnic table on the deck of Snowbasin's Needles Lodge.

Tomorrow it will still be cool, Wilensky said, but Wednesday and Thursday should be "gorgeous" fall days.

"We might still see 80-degree days again before winter sets in," he said.
