Spring continues to feel like winter in much of Utah, with more snow in the forecast, according to the National Weather Service. But conditions are expected to clear up next week.
The high on Wednesday was only about 37 degrees. It should be warmer Thursday — the forecast high is 49 — but there’s a 40% chance of more snow, with accumulation of less than half an inch possible in the valleys and a few inches expected in the mountains.
There’s a 20% chance of rain and snow showers on Friday morning, with temperatures rising into the low 50s as the sun returns to the Salt Lake City area that afternoon. There’s no snow in the forecast for Saturday, but there’s a 40% chance of rain in the afternoon, with temperatures in the upper 50s.
And, yes — there’s a slight chance of still more rain and snow showers early on Easter Sunday morning. It’ll be mostly sunny most of the day, though, with temperatures in the low to mid-50s.
The sun is expected to stick around for at least a couple of days. The forecast high is 62 on Monday — the only day when it’ll reach normal temperatures for this time of year — and 56 on Tuesday.
There’s no precipitation in the forecast for southern Utah. In the St. George area, the National Weather Service is forecasting highs in the low 70s on Thursday, and the mid-70s — normal for this time of year — on Friday. It’ll be in the low 80s on Saturday and Sunday, and the mid-80s on Monday and Tuesday.
