NORTHERN UTAH — Warmer weather has arrived in Utah in recent days, and the next batch of storms to hit Utah is expected to bring rain to the valleys and significant snow accumulations in the mountains.

The National Weather Service expects precipitation to begin falling Sunday night, continuing into Monday and increasing late Monday night into Tuesday. Precipitation will continue off and on Wednesday.

Valley areas will primarily see rain, but mountainous areas are expected to see between 1 and 2 feet of snow through Tuesday evening. A map from the NWS shows the affected areas and a timeline of the expected storm activity.

The National Weather Service says areas of lower elevation could see rapid melting of existing snowpack due to the rainfall.
