Warmer weather to get through the middle of the week!

The problem is that winds will increase ahead of a storm expected to cross Northern & Central Utah tonight. SW winds could gust near 50 mph or higher across parts of Southern, Central, and Eastern Utah this afternoon and evening. Blowing dust will be possible along with strong cross-winds that might make travel difficult.

A quick round of mainly light valley rain and mountain snow above 5,500 feet is expected late tonight into tomorrow morning. Most showers will taper off by noon Thursday. It'll be slightly cooler behind the storm, but then feel like summer by the weekend!
