SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Saturday, Utah! A few clouds to start Holy Saturday throughout the state and this is due to a weak system trying to undercut the high pressure that is the main driving force in our weather.
A few stray, light showers can’t be completely ruled out, but the chance of any wet weather finding you is low. There’s a slightly better chance in NE Nevada and southern Idaho. Our southerly flow today beneath the ridge of high pressure will continue our warming trend. Daytime highs will run roughly five degrees warmer than what we see today, which means some spots along the Wasatch Front could make a run at 60! High pressure firmly takes over once again by Easter Sunday and as the warmup keeps on keeping on, temperatures will be above our seasonal averages in most locations! The Wasatch Front will see 60s on Easter Sunday and St. George will likely climb into the 80s. Even Park City will likely climb into the 50s!
We’ll continue to trend even warmer into early next week as dry skies persist before we could potentially see a change in our weather by the latter half of next week. The upcoming warm-up has led to a lot of talk about flooding potential. There is a flood watch for NE Nevada that will run from Saturday through Tuesday as rapid snowmelt could lead to flooding. At this time, there are no watches or warnings for Utah, but we should expect warming temperatures to accelerate runoff. Rivers will be running cold, high and fast, so it’s important to keep children and pets away from rising waters.
Our next shot at wet weather doesn’t move in until late next week, so stay tuned.
