Statement as of 2:44 AM MDT on April 20, 2014

...Spring storm is expected Tuesday and Wednesday...

Confidence is increasing that a significant Spring storm will impact the region Tuesday and Wednesday. Ahead of the storm...very warm weather is forecast Monday and Tuesday...with our first 80 degree day expected at Salt Lake City Monday.

Strong southerly winds are expected to develop Tuesday ahead of the storm. The strongest winds will likely impact the western valleys and mountain areas. There is a chance for property damage due to the winds...so its a good idea to check your yard for any loose items that may become airborne and secure them.

Much colder temperatures are expected with the cold front Tuesday night through mid week. Accumulating snowfall is expected for the northern mountains and bench locations...with many northern valleys seeing snow in the air. The cold temperatures will provide several opportunities for a hard freeze to impact early gardens before next weekend.

This large storm will impact the entire region this week. Prepare for strong winds before Tuesday. If venturing outdoors...ensure you are ready for a significant temperature drop by Tuesday night. Monitor NOAA Weather Radio and social media for the latest information... forecasts...and warnings.
