Don’t get too comfortable when you see bluer skies Monday — it’s not to last.
The rain and snow is expected to peter out in the valleys overnight Sunday, leaving partly cloudy skies and a chance of only mountain rain in the storm’s wake Monday. But come Tuesday, rain and possibly snow return, according to the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City.
Light west to southwest winds will accompany the precipitation, the weather service adds.
Highs in the valleys along the Wasatch Front are expected to hit the low- to mid-50s on Monday, with lows between 30 and 35 degrees. The same nighttime temperatures are expected Tuesday, though the highs that day will only reach the upper 40s to lower 50s.
People venturing into the backcountry should be mindful of a Utah Avalanche Center prediction for a moderate chance for slides in the Uintas, Salt Lake, Ogden, Provo-area mountains on Monday.
The chance for more wet weather continues into Wednesday and Thursday before clearing up again by Friday, according to the weather service.
