Significant storm to start of the 2016-2017 season! (1)

A significant fall storm is expected to move into the Great Basin on Thursday then slowly move to the east clearing out of the Utah area on Saturday, moisture ahead of the storm brings rain showers and thunderstorms to many areas of Utah starting Wednesday. Plan on big rain fall amounts (0.50-1.50"+ for most valleys, 1.00-2.00"+ mountains) over most of the state with rain changing to snow in the mountains by Friday, snow mixed in as low as 7,000 ft. Look for a general 2-5" of snow in most Utah mountain areas above 8,500 ft with local 6-12"+. Below is the WRF model forecast rain and snow amounts between 6am Wednesday and 6am Saturday.
