Utah forecast: No fooling, April 1 will be breezy and wet

First Published Mar 31 2014 07:51 am • Last Updated Mar 31 2014 10:50 am

No fooling, April 1 will bring more valley rainfall and mountain snow showers for much of Utah.

The National Weather Service has issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for the western two-thirds of the state, warning that the departure of an easterly high pressure system late Monday would usher in the new rounds of precipitation come Tuesday.

Further, that cool and unsettled weather system will dominate Utah’s weather through Wednesday at least.

The Salt Lake and Tooele valleys can look for a wet Tuesday with high temperatures in the low-50s, a mirror image of the forecast for the region Monday afternoon. South winds of 10-20 mph will add to the energy of the storms.

Southern Utahns looked for a milder version of that forecast. High temperatures Tuesday were to be in the low-60s, with rain whipped by winds of 25 mph expected through the evening. That was quite a break from a drier Monday’s highs in the 70-degree range.

All that atmospheric stirring prompted the Utah Division of Air Quality to fly its "green," or healthy breathing conditions banners statewide.

Still, it is spring, and with that comes pollen. The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website on Monday rated Cottonwood and Willow pollen levels at "high" and "moderate," respectively.
