January 13th is historically the snowiest day of the winter in the Wasatch.  To be precise there is a 43% chance that it will snow on this day.

While we are sitting underneath this massive high pressure dome, enjoying spring like skiing I assumed we’d have a better chance of hell freezing over this season than it actually snowing on the 13th.  So I did a little digging... 

 

Sure enough, the latest computer model runs are showing a storm for Tuesday.  Not a blockbuster, nothing epic but sure enough the forecast right now calls for about 4 - 7 inches of snow to fall throughout the day.  Coincidence?  I don’t know... but What I’m saying is there is chance...

So you're telling me there's a chance.png
