Grab a good jacket and an umbrella, it's going to be a stormy start to the weekend!

Valley rain and mountain snow will become widespread today. Thunderstorms are also possible across much of the area and could bring accumulating graupel. If you encounter that when you're driving, treat it like snow and slow down. Strong wind gusts will also make travel difficult across South Central & SE Utah with more blowing dust likely. Heavy snow is expected over the mountain passes today.
