Think E.E. Cummings for Utah’s Tuesday forecast, one where a wind will blow the rain away and blow the sky away and all the leaves away, and the trees stand.

And that prediction is not all existential poetic metaphor. The National Weather Service has issued a high wind watch for northwestern, northeastern and central Utah Tuesday late afternoon through Wednesday morning. Winds of 30-40 mph, with gusts beyond 50 mph, were expected as a cold front embraced the region.
