Significant weather changes will bring Utah rain, snow, and cooler temperatures



Salt Lake City, Utah – Make sure you grab your jacket and umbrella before heading outside on Monday morning as a strong spring storm system is expected to deliver significant weather changes to Utah at the beginning of the workweek.

By Monday morning, the storm system will still be over California and heading into Utah. This will bring heavy snow to the mountains and raise the likelihood of rain for the Monday morning commute in the northern and central lowlands.

The majority of the Wasatch Front cities and many people in the Salt Lake area will have a soggy commute in the morning and evening as a result of the rain that starts to accumulate overnight and stays for most of Monday. As the storm system moves into the Central Plains on Tuesday, the likelihood of rain fully disappears from the forecast. Rainfall chances start to decline late Monday evening and Monday night.

With only a few showers at most for St. George, the majority of southwest Utah will miss out on the strongest valley rain farther south. After Monday, there is little likelihood of rain in this area.

The Salt Lake Valley and much of the northern and central valleys will receive half an inch to three-quarters of an inch of rain by the time the storm system leaves the area.

There will be enough cold for snow to fall at the higher altitudes. Early on Monday, the snow level may drop to the upper benches, but by Monday afternoon, it should rise to about 7,000 feet. Monday morning sees the mountains under a Winter Weather Advisories due to several inches of new snowfall. The Upper Cottonwoods, which might receive up to 20 inches of snow, and Brian Head, which could receive up to 15 inches, appear to be the main winners.

Monday’s highs in most of northern and central Utah will be in the upper 40s to about 50 degrees, which is relatively cold compared to the previous few days’ 70s and 80s. For this reason, you’ll need a jacket in addition to an umbrella when you venture outside on Monday morning.
For the Beehive State, a drying, warming trend is anticipated from mid-to late week into the forthcoming weekend.
