Ogden, Utah

There aren’t many large population centers in Utah, so getting this forecast for Ogden is a rare treat,

At 553PM, MT, Ogden was reporting clear skies and a temperature of 63 degrees. The warm winter is continuing into spring for the western United States, as a broad upper level ridge is building into the western US.
The wave structure is quite high amplitude, with troughs developing over the Gulf of Alaska and an even sharper feature over northwestern Mexico. In the eastern part of the country, this sort of set up would rob the area to the north of warm flow, but as an interior portion of the country with no real access to major moisture sources, Utah can create it’s own hot, dry air mass, which it will do (relatively speaking) in response to hte stronger ridge to the north.

It’s been a long time since we have had a nice easy forcast like this. We’ll see how close these temperatures end up. They are much warmer than most models suggested right now, so everyone is skewing heavily towards the RUC, which is a short term, more frequently run model.

Ogden, Utah to Oakland, California

This seems alphabetically difficult, but we are headed between two O cities. It’s going to be a short day and a half, wherein the second day will be very short, only a few hours. It’s a 764 mile trip that we will cover at a rate of almost 67mph. The first leg of the drive will take us 2/3 of the way home, about 535 miles


There is an upper level ridge across the mountain west which is providing a favorable environment for monsoonal flow and blistering hot day time heat in northern Nevada. Don’t be surprised to see some 90s in northern Nevada as we make our way to Patrick, on the eastern outskirts of Reno through the day on Monday. It’s a dry heat though. No rain is expected.

There is a system parked off the Pacific Northwest that is going to funnel flow from the southwest past northern California, but it won’t impact the area we are driving through, other than providing a nice partly cloudy backdrop as we pull into Oakland.

Warm Summer Days

With a large trough translating out of the region and high pressure moving overhead, the weather for Ogden was looking good for the end of the workweek. Showers managed to avoid the Ogden area so they enjoyed a couple warm, dry days, which was kind of expected minus our mention of a slight chance of some early morning activity on Thursday. The Weather Channel and the NWS tied for the top spot.

Thursday: High 82, Low 59.
Friday: High 84, Low 57.
Forecast Grade: B

Flagstaff, Arizona to Ogden, Utah

Time for an interesting road trip, taking a 9 hour drive through the Great Basin. It’s a good thing that we will be able to cover the entire route in one long day because there aren’t many places between to stop. It’s a 546 mile drive that we’re on, meaning an average of 58.9mph, because there is little time on interstates.

Leaving Flagstaff and heading north, we should have a pretty scenic, enjoyable drive for a lot of the day. There should be a great deal of scenery to enjoy as we spend a lot of time in the back country of Arizona and Utah. We won’t really see a lot of interstate until we hit Nephi, Utah, and thankfully, we won’t see any rain until Provo. There is a chance for some showers and thunderstorms east of the Great Salt Lake which may slow down traffic as we head through during rush hour. Most of the rain will be on it’s way out of town after about 1, however,so if there ARE any traffic problems, they are more likely due to every day rush hour than a stray storm rolling through Utah. Should be fine, with wonderful weather for our stay in Ogden.

Ogden, Utah

I can tell you almost nothing about Ogden, except that A) it is in Utah and B) it is called Ogden. Hopefully, I can figure out the weather there fore the next two days.

At 1153AM, MT, Ogden was reporting a temperature of 86 degrees with sunny skies and a gusty south wind. An unseasonably sharp trough was digging into the Great Basin, and was creating a surface gradient favorable for the strong winds.
The sharpness of the upper trough will aid in the rapid translation of the system out of Ogden. There may be a few showers and storms early tomorrow, but high pressure will build in quickly as the upper wave will be in the Dakotas by the end of the forecast period, with sunny skies and some heat building back in by the end of the week.

Everyone is going warmer than the models on Friday. I don’t know why not. Looks like full sun. Satellite shows some clouds to the southeast, which are producing some showers in the high country.
