... Spring storm for Tuesday and Wednesday...

A significant Spring storm will impact the region Tuesday and
Wednesday. Ahead of the storm... strong southerly winds are
expected to develop across much of the area Tuesday with the
strongest winds across the western valleys. Strong northwest winds
are also possible across the northwest deserts and into the
Wasatch front behind the cold front that is forecast to cross this
area Tuesday afternoon and early evening.

Colder air will spread into the region Tuesday night and remain
through Wednesday. Accumulating snowfall is possible in the
northern mountains Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. Snow
levels could reach the northern valleys... but with little or no
accumulation. Freezing temperatures are possible across the far
north Wednesday morning and in the colder locations across much of
the area Thursday morning. Temperatures will return to near
seasonal normals Thursday.

Monitor NOAA Weather Radio... your local media... and social media
sources for the latest updates on this storm.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Salt Lake City Utah 
927 PM MDT sun Apr 20 2014 


Synopsis...a weak storm system will move slowly out of the 
region tonight. A warm southwest flow will develop Monday. 
A Cold Spring storm will impact the area Tuesday and Wednesday. 


&& 


Discussion...weak convection remains across the southern County Warning Area this evening 
along the weak stalled surface boundary that pushed through the County Warning Area 
today drying the northwest. Expect this to pretty much dissipate 
over the next few hours although clouds and weak light showers could 
linger through the night. Even so...the chance of measurable rain 
from these lingering showers will be near zero. 


The short wave ridge axis moving into the Great Basin at this time 
will shift rapidly east by Monday afternoon as a mild southwesterly flow develops. 
The remains of the surface boundary lift back north as a weak warm 
front and models continue to develop convection in association 
with this feature and increasing upper level lift across the northern 
Great Basin including portions of northern Utah late Monday afternoon through the 
evening. Models also indicate convection developing over the terrain 
tomorrow afternoon as well from the southern mountains northward. Dont expect much in 
the way of precipitation from this but gusty winds are possible. 


Increasing south winds and a mild airmass away from the convection 
should bring a warm day Monday area-wide. South winds increase Monday 
night into Tuesday ahead of a deep Pacific trough. New 00z NAM remains a bit 
slower with the cold front keeping it west of slc until after 00z Wednesday 
but does develop a very tight Post frontal surface gradient across the 
Salt Flats that crosses the Wasatch front by 03z. This would be 
too slow if the new GFS and ec remain consistent with their previous 
runs. The NAM also continues to indicate very strong southerly 
winds across much of the County Warning Area ahead of this front during the day 
Tuesday so current high wind watch appears on track. 


This system is not terribly moist but it should bring a period of 
Post frontal precipitation to the Wasatch front and adjacent mountains new 
NAM is forecasting about 1/3 to 2/3 of an inch of water in this 
area and this would be all snow in the mountains so marginal advisory 
level amounts are possible if this is right. Still dont expect a 
major impact from this although is could affect the Wednesday morning 
commute over parleys from the Park City area. The airmass is 
forecast to get cold enough for snow to the Wasatch front valley 
floors but dont anticipate any real accumulation below about 5500 
feet. 


This cold airmass could send temperatures locally below freezing along 
the Idaho border Wednesday morning but probably not into the 20s. 
Increasing clouds with a warm front Wednesday night could preclude temperatures 
dropping any lower Thursday morning in this area but some of the 
normally colder locations across the central and southern County Warning Area could dip 
below freezing Thursday morning. 


Updated earlier to lower probability of precipitation below slight chance mention across 
the northern County Warning Area the rest of this evening and sky cover in these same areas 
after midnight once the cirrus plume moves east. No other changes 
planned. 


&& 


Aviation...the slc terminal will see VFR conditions throughout the 
taf period with any ceilings well above 7000 feet. Southerly winds will 
prevail tonight and will remain southerly through the day Monday. 
Winds could become gusty after about 17-19z. There is a 30 percent 
chance of a switch to northwest around 21-22z. 


&& 


Slc watches/warnings/advisories... 
Utah...high wind watch from Tuesday morning through Tuesday evening for 
utz002>005-014>016. 


Wyoming...none.
