It could get cold and wet on Sunday

St. George » Southwestern Utah the place to be

First Published Apr 12 2014 10:14 am • Last Updated Apr 12 2014 10:19 pm

The recent beautiful spring weather might have lulled Utahns into planning to play golf, go camping or hold an outdoor backyard barbecue on Palm Sunday.

But the weather might scuttle those plans.

The National Weather Service said there is a 50 percent chance of rain or snow in the Salt Lake Valley Sunday when highs are only expected to reach 52 degrees. Lows could drop to 33 Sunday night with a slight chance of rain and snow continuing, so gardeners who have flowers or vegetable plants out might have to be concerned about a freeze.

The bad weather looks as though it will last just long enough to ruin Sunday outdoor plans. The forecast calls for sunny skies and highs of 58 on Monday, partly sunny skies and highs of 67 on Sunday, and then a slight chance of showers and 59 on Wednesday.

The thousands of people in Moab for spring break and the annual Easter Jeep Safari that opened Saturday will see highs of 62 Sunday with a 50 percent chance of shower. After a breezy and cool Sunday night where lows could reach 34, the weather in southeastern Utah is expected to improve, warming to 60 on Monday and 71 on Tuesday.

The place to be for spring camping and golfing trips will be the St. George area. There is a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms Sunday, with a high of 76 predicted. Highs are expected to increase to 73 on Monday and 81 on Tuesday.
