Utah forecast: Rain, snow settle in over state
Winter Weather Advisory » Nearly a foot of snow expected in mountains.
First Published Oct 10 2013 07:46 am • Last Updated Oct 10 2013 05:34 pm

A storm system out of the Pacific Northwest brought mountain snowfall and persistent rainfall to the valleys of northern Utah Thursday; more of the same was expected through Friday.

The National Weather Service began Thursday by issuing a Winter Weather Advisory for mountainous stretches of northeastern, central, southern and southeastern Utah. Snow accumulations of up to 10 inches were expected by Friday morning in areas including northeastern Utah from the east benches of the Wasatch Range to the Wyoming border; central and southern Utah from Manti, Richfield and Milford running south to Escalante, Cedar City, Bryce Canyon and St. George; and southeastern Utah, primarily in the mountains around Monticello.

The Utah Department of Transportation also issued travel advisories for mountain passes in the affected areas.

The Wasatch Front looked for highs in the upper-50s to low-60s Friday along with scattered rain showers, a forecast that was a kissing cousin to that for Thursday. Southern Utahns looked for isolated showers and highs in the low-60s to low-70s.

The Utah Division of Air Quality graded the entire state as "Green," or healthy for air quality into the weekend, while the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website reported sagebrush, at "very high," and ragweed, at "moderate," on its pollen index.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature for Friday was expected to hit 59, up a tick from Thursday’s forecast; Ogden looked for 57 and 55 degrees, respectively; Provo 59 and 56; Logan 57 and 56; Wendover 59s; Duchesne 55 and 51; Cedar City 58 and 49; St. George 72 and 62; and Moab 65 and 58 degrees.
