After a bit of winter on Thursday, Utah is going to feel considerably more like spring.
Many Utahns awoke to snow showers and wet roads in the valleys and a few inches of snow in the mountains, where a winter storm warning remains in effect until 4 p.m.
But, according to the National Weather Service, the snow will taper off as the storm shifts south and east. Skies will clear Friday in northern Utah, while central and southern Utah will see “minimal” precipitation.
It won’t warm up much from Thursday to Friday in the Salt Lake area — 43 to 45 — but Friday will be mostly sunny. And temperatures will start to rise — 51 on Saturday; 53 on Sunday (with a slight chance of showers); 55 on Sunday; 61 on Monday; and mid-60s through the rest of the week.
And after the storm moves out of southern Utah on Friday, it will get significantly warmer there. In the St. George area, it will be 54 on Friday; 60 on Saturday and Sunday; 67 on Monday; and then in the mid-70s on Tuesday, continuing through the rest of the week.
