Scattered showers and cooler for the middle of our week Utah weather forecast
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – It’s a wet start to our Wednesday in parts of the state!
A cold front moved through northern Utah last night and moved into central and southern Utah today. We face scattered shower activity throughout the day as the chance of wet weather decreases in northern Utah. The most organized precipitation has been associated with the front, but showers and thunderstorms are possible. Rain in the valley will trouble us, but snow will be likely in our central and southern mountains.
Cedar City and St. George will have a slight chance of rain, but the chance won’t be as high compared to the chance of rain tonight along the Wasatch front. In terms of accumulations, this storm is not expected to produce anything significant. Northern mountains will likely pick up 2-5″, mountain valleys could see anywhere from a 2″ trail, and central and southern mountains could pick up 1-4″. We may also hear thunder and see lightning in southern Utah, with a general risk of thunderstorms from the Storm Prediction Center.
Humidity won’t be the only impact of this fast-moving system, we also get cooler air filtering. Temperatures will be about 5 to 10 degrees cooler in most Utah cities today. Cooler air will hang around for St. Patrick’s Day, as the high pressure sets in, and it will come with the sun. At the end of the work week, temperatures will tend to rise and we will jump above average for the start of the weekend. Saturday will bring more clouds and winds before another storm approaches Sunday. As this storm develops, we will keep you posted on the potential for precipitation!
Result ? A choppy Wednesday with rain in the valley and snow in the mountains for parts of the state.
