Spring storm » Northern Utah awaits rain showers, mountain snow.
First Published May 04 2012 06:35 am • Last Updated May 04 2012 07:04 am

Northern Utahns looked for a cooler and windy Saturday with an increasing chance for intermittent showers throughout the region, while southern Utah was forecast to remain warm, dry and at risk for wildfires.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook through the weekend for the entire state, warning that some mountain locations could receive new snowfall as a Pacific storm system meandered over the northern third of Utah. Winds of 20-26 mph were expected with gusts as high as 40 mph in the southern third of the state, elevating the risk of rapidly spreading wildfires and triggering a "Red Flag" fire danger warning.
