Another midweek of rain and snow was forecast for northern Utah before a water-laden storm system was to move south on Thursday.
Throughout Wednesday, the Wasatch Front looked for periodic rain and snow showers capped by evening thunderstorms. The meteorological drama was to ease somewhat Thursday, though, when partly cloudy skies and high temperatures in the mid-50s — up 5-7 degrees from Wednesday — were predicted.
Tuesday's storm left behind some impressive snow totals. Brighton, at the crest, measured 20 inches of new snow by dawn Wednesday; Alta had 18; Deer Valley 17; Snowbird 13; Solitude 10; Park City 9, and Provo and Big Cottonwood canyons 7 inches.
