Weather pattern change on the way

Utah's Most Accurate Forecast with Meteorologist Alana Brophy

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Temperatures soared above average Monday with a mix of sun and clouds. A deck of clouds moved into Utah late Saturday.  An active pattern will take hold and bring two strong cold fronts to Utah, and commuters should be prepared for rain, wind and snow. 

This next storm is well organized and will start to impact the state Tuesday. Temperatures were warm for Monday, in Salt Lake City we hit 72 degrees, and saw increasing cloud cover. High wind warnings are posted and gusty conditions are expected in Southern Utah and West Desert. Thunderstorms will move in Tuesday, rain will change to snow and snow levels will fall to the valley floor. Snow showers will continue into Wednesday and Thursday. Meteorologist Alana Brophy takes an early look at the storm and answers questions in a Facebook Live.

This storm has already prompted the National Weather Service to issue a “Winter Storm Warning” that will go into effect Tuesday afternoon through Thursday morning for our Northern, Central and Southern mountains. We see watches like this issued when there is potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. 

The watch is for the Northern and Central mountains and includes cities like Huntsville, Park City, Heber, Woodruff, Randolph, Alta, Brighton, Mirror Lake Highway, Scofield, Cove Fort and Fish Lake. For the latest Pinpoint Weather Forecast, click here:
