Our coldest arctic air here comes from the east, not the great basin. The cold does seem to get entrenched in the basin with these types of systems and it is neat to follow cities such as Grand junction, St. george and such.
Locally, I didn't know that was the setup. That's interesting. I was kind of looking at the bigger picture I guess...the advective cold part. All severe cold the enters the USA passs through the Dakota's the heads in many different directions and feeds into local setups it seems.
I think this shot won't last long though, the pattern is fast. It's in and out in a few days. Also, I think the deeper anomalies will be to your north. For you and points south lows on Friday (and maybe Sunday night again) will not be far off normal. Either way, it wont last long in this pattern:
