Wednesday's Pinpoint Forecast: January Thaw! Sorry guys, but this is not a very good forecast. A huge high pressure will sprawl across the western US for the next 10-14 days. The inversion setup begins today, as warm air moves in aloft. The weather setup means now the pollution, moisture, and cold air will become trapped in the Wasatch Front, Cache Valley, Tooele Valley, West Deserts, Uinta Basin, and any sheltered valley location. Otherwise, the rest of the state will see very dry and mild conditions. This inversion won't be as bad as last January, when there was a deep snowpack that trapped the cold air, making the inversion even stronger. Our snowpack is thin and old, but the inversion will still settle in for a while. While the air quality is "moderate" today, it will only get worse later this week and this weekend. Good news, the weather for most of Sundance will be very tranquil.
Have a good day!
