Arizona Daily Snow
By Lee Born, Meteorologist Posted 10 days ago February 12, 2024
Following our epic snowfall a sunny, quiet and steadily warmer week of weather offers up sweet conditions.
Short Term Forecast
High pressure remains in place through the week. Cold, fast mornings will be followed by mild afternoons, spring-like by the latter half of the week. The ridge begins to break down this weekend as a Pacific storm develops off the west coast. Minimal impacts on the weekend conditions as it appears mild weather persists.
Models all onboard with the development of a Pacific system off California through the President's Day weekend. However there is a ton of spread in how long it stays offshore and the eventual track it takes inland. The GFS is advertising another major snow event beginning Monday night 2/19 going into Wednesday. The EURO on the other hand keeps it offshore until late week, than brings it through in a much weakened state. Something to watch, more to come in future chats.
NEW: Powder Vision
In addition to our new "Live Snow" data that shows hourly snowfall from nearby weather stations, we built a system to estimate the amount of snow that accumulates on a snow stake camera so that you can track hour-by-hour snowfall for the last 24 hours.
Many ski resorts have snow stake cameras and this allows us to (try to) figure out how much snow falls each hour. We're calling this "Powder Vision".
- Go to any ski resort screen in OpenSnow with a snow stake camera.
- Tap the "Snow Report" tab.
- View the latest snow stake camera snapshot and hour-by-hour snowfall for the last 24 hours.
We have over 60 snow stake cameras available right now and we do our best to add new cams to OpenSnow if we can host them.
Powder Vision and Live Snow are available on OpenSnow.com and in the OpenSnow app with an All-Access subscription. All-Access includes 10-day snow forecasts, high-resolution weather maps, expert local analysis, custom snow alerts, iOS widgets, and much more.
