Wind advisory, snow storm, and avalanche warnings in this week’s forecast

PARK CITY, Utah —  Utah is forecasted to receive its next dose of big snowfall on Tuesday. Ahead of that storm, the National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for Monday from 8 a.m-8 p.m. The Salt Lake Valley and surrounding areas will face gusts up to 55 mph and sustained winds of 20-30 mph.

The warning specifies the potential for unsecured objects to be blown around as well as power outages.

To call this week’s storm a powder skier’s dream would be an understatement, as Powderchaser has issued a “Snorkel Alert.” The Sierra Mountains alone could receive as much as 3-4 feet of snow between Monday and Tuesday.

The Wasatch is expected to get dumped on between Tuesday and Wednesday, with forecasts of 18-28 inches of snowfall likely. Snowfall is expected to reach all of the Utah resorts but will remain above 7,500 feet with the recent warming of lower elevations.

As we get stoked for this week’s dumping of snow, those venturing into the backcountry should be advised to the Utah Avalanche Center issuing a high-danger alert for the Salt Lake Area Mountains.
