Wind in Utah

Posted Oct 12th - 4:41pm

Hi! I have a question. I just moved to Farmington, Utah. I want to know why on earth we have such crazy wind storms!! I've been here a month and we've had a lot of crazy wind!

Thanks so much for satisfying my curiosity.

Sincerely, Michelle R.

Average Snow and Freeze Dates

Posted Oct 12th - 1:38pm

When is the first average snow fall in the salt lake valley? Curtis B.


A common question on everyone's mind this week when does the snow fly and when does it get frosty?


Posted Oct 11th - 5:05pm

Today is 10.11.06 the reported pressure is 30.16 in Salt Lake City at 3 pm. I have a gage which reads 25.8. I am thinking the reported pressure has been normalized for sea level (altitude). What is the formula for doing this. If I am wrong please let me know and guide to the knowledge of the truth.

Water Years and Dates

Posted Oct 11th - 2:23pm

Hi, I was wondering why the "Snow Season" is from July 1st through June 30th and the "Water Year" is from October 1st through September 30th. Why don't they use the same time period for both?

Thanks, Arvin F. Oak City


Green Sky

Posted Oct 8th - 9:21pm

I have heard of the "green flash phenomenon" that happens if conditions are right when looking at the the sunrise across a very flat horizon. Could something like that have happened Monday night? I live in Woods Cross and the storm had just gone mostly to the east; there were some breaking clouds in the west and some light was shining through. I noticed it for just a short time looking east possibly 1 minute, (however my co-worker lives on the Bountiful bench and said it lasted about 10-15 minutes) Everything looked green!! Can the light rays be bend just right to just get a green wavelength for an extended period of time like the "green flash phenomenon" except lasting longer? The only other thing that comes to mind is pollution in the air but I doubt that after the rain storm. It was amazing to see!! Thanks, I always check your web sight. Ann


Seeing funky colors in the sky is pretty fun but sometimes a little bit scary, especially if you see something that's totally unfamiliar. The green flash you speak of isn't rare but observing it is. It's one of the neatest phenomena and most people will never see the green flash, as much as I personally have looked for the flash it has continued to elude me.

Snow Totals

Posted Oct 5th - 5:40am

Hi - I need to find the snowfall totals for the past 3 years ('05-'06 - '04-05' - '03-'04) - I need the average snowfall, but would appreciate this information year by year - Is there a place on the web where I can find this? I have looked on the search engines, but can only come up with longer term averages (i.e. 10 yr, 50+ yr, etc) - If this information is available to you, I would pick ‘Bountiful UT' as a good estimate for the SLC area - Any reference as to the source of this information is appreciated also - I'm sure that you are busy, so if you can recommend a method for me to do this research personally that would also be appreciated - Brad W.


Those search engines and trying to find historical climate data are a nightmare. Past weather data is called climate data, that's one part of the problem, like anyone knows that!

Hi, I need to know what the high and low was for September 20th in Tooele, it is for my daughters school project. Thanks, Cory D.

We have a potential group that is looking to find out the EXACT temperatures during the past five years during the first week of September. We have looked everywhere and are not having much luck. Would you be able to provide this information for us? Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you so much! I hope to be hearing from you soon!


Funky Clouds

This was looking West from Riverton at about 7:10pm tonight. They look kinda like bubbles in the sky. Really neat clouds, just wondering what they are called?? Thanks for all that you do for us.

El Nino and Utah

Posted Sep 29th - 12:02pm

I am planning a ski vacation to Snowbird for early February 2007. I am from Florida and not familiar with what effects an El Nino winter will have on the snowfall during the ski season. Can you give me any information on this subject to help us plan for our upcoming vacation? The past two years we have been to Snowbird in the months of February and April, and have become spoiled by the amount of snow on the mountain and getting several nice powder days during our trips.
