Second significant storm of the year! (14)

A very strong and moist pacific jet will bring a storm that will deliver wide spread valley rain changing to snow by Tuesday, heavy wet snow and strong winds in the mountains with snow levels rising up as high as 6,000 ft on Monday afternoon/evening along the Wasatch Front. Most of the heavy rain/snow with this strong storm is expected to end during the morning hours on Tuesday with a few lingering lighter snow showers mainly over the mountains by afternoon ahead of yet another storm on Tuesday night and Wednesday. With this first storm plan on a general 15-30" snow for most all central/northern Utah mountains above 7,000 ft, 8-14" for mountains valleys. Along the Wasatch Front things get tricky depending on when the rain changes back over to snow but plan on a general trace-2" in the valleys with local 3-8" bench areas favoring the central/southern Wasatch Front. Click on the below map for the WRF model forecasted snow between 5am Monday and 5am Wednesday, note that this does include some of the expected snow fall from the next storm.
