Ever since the jet stream moved south in Mid-February, the Pacific firehose has been pointed squarely on Utah and it looks as though this weekend is going to be a banger weekend.
A Winter Storm Watch is currently in effect for a large swatch of the Wasatch and Uinta mountains with upwards of two feet forecasted by Sunday. The storm itself is forecasted to come in warm (*35°F on Friday) before cooling off gradually throughout the weekend (*19°F on Sunday). That rightside up snowpack should do wonders for coverage and snow quality by the early next week.
