May showers headed into Utah as winds gust through overnight
First Published May 05 2013 11:39 am • Last Updated May 05 2013 11:39 am

Gusty winds blew through parts of northern Utah overnight, knocking down tree limbs and sparking one grass fire.

Ogden police said the storm was blamed for knocking down a power line overnight that fell into a field and started a small grass fire that was quickly contained before it could damage any structures.

Meteorologists with the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City said the strongest winds hit the northern counties of Weber, Cache and Davis counties. A gust of 60 mph in Farmington was reported overnight. By mid-morning Sunday, the winds had died down significantly.

But make sure to keep an umbrella handy this week.

Meteorologists said northern Utahns could expected to see scattered rain and thunderstorms through the week as a Pacific weather system moves through the state.

The storms are most likely Monday through Wednesday, but could linger through Friday before the storm system leaves the state, the weather service said.
