Winter Has Arrived at the Top of Patchwork Parkway

By October 6, 2011News

Oct. 6, 2011 – The first snowstorm of the season has arrived at Brian Head and Cedar Breaks National Monument.  A light snow covering extends down toward Panguitch Lake, Panguitch and Parowan, which will soon melt away when sunny weather returns.  Now that winter has arrived, travelers along Utah’s Patchwork Parkway are advised to drive with caution as shady areas of the byway may be slick and public dirt side roads will be muddy.  It is not unusual for travelers to experience warm sunny weather in the lower elevations (5,800 ft), and rain/snow conditions in the higher elevations (10,000+ ft)  – all on the same day.
