Utah forecast: Warm today, but storm on the way
Weather » Temps will drop with more snow expected in the mountains.
First Published Oct 07 2013 07:39 am • Last Updated Feb 14 2014 11:35 pm

Dropping overnight temperatures and icy breezes were expected to bring frost to the valleys Tuesday and snow to Utah’s mountains by late Wednesday.

The National Weather Service issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook covering the western two thirds of Utah. Winds building to 25 mph and gusting in places well beyond that were to usher in the storm system on Tuesday. By Wednesday night, snowfall was expect to accumulate in all the state’s mountains at 7,000 feet elevation and above.
