Meteorologists are forecasting that Utah’s temperatures will drop below normal as April showers continue.

Another round of showers and thunderstorms are coming to northern Utah on Sunday, followed by a greater chance of valley rain, mountain snow and gusty winds on Monday as a stronger system moves across the state. High-elevation snowfall could be heavy at times, with the greatest accumulations across the central and southern mountains, warns the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City.

High temperatures will also drop from close to 60 on Sunday down about 10 degrees on Monday, below the norm for early April. Southern Utah is forecast for a potentially 15 degree decrease.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature is expected to reach 60 on Sunday before dropping to 49 on Monday; Ogden’s highs are expected to be 57 and 48 degrees, respectively; Provo 62 and 52; Logan 56 and 49; Wendover 59 and 48; Duchesne 63 and 57; Cedar City 60 and 52; St. George 80 and 65; and Moab 73 and 62 degrees.

With all that rain, Utah’s air quality remains "green" or healthy through Monday, according to the Utah Division of Air Quality.

The Skyline and Uintah mountains remain at a moderate risk for avalanches in the backcountry on Sunday, according to the Utah Avalanche Center. The rest of the ranges in the state are pegged at a low risk for slides.
