Strong Downslope/Canyon Winds - Snow
A strong storm is expected to move into Utah on Monday and continue into the day on Tuesday. Plan on areas of heavy snow focused over central/southern Utah mountains. Look for a general 6-12" of snow for most Utah Mountain areas above 7,000 ft with local 12-24" amounts. See the below map for model projected snowfall.
The other big story will be the strong downslope canyon winds focused in Weber and Davis county with gusts of 70+ mph possible on Monday night into the morning hours on Tuesday! Click on the below map for model projected wind speeds in knots for the Wasatch Front at 2am on Tuesday.
