Balmy spring weather will retreat when a midweek cold front locks onto Utah, bringing valley rains and light mountain snow showers.
The National Weather Service issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for the western two thirds of the state beginning Tuesday evening and stretching into early next week. Along with precipitation, forecasters expect gusty southerly winds to whip the region.
For the Wasatch Front, a dramatic change is in store. While Tuesday's high temperatures were to flirt with the low-70s, sunny skies were to give way to partly cloudy skies and winds of 10-20 mph, gusting to 30 mph, as the storm system approached late Tuesday afternoon.
