Snow Returns!

Posted Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017 by Alex Lukinbeal

An upper level trough currently centered over central California will swing through Utah Thursday.  Temperatures aloft will cool, allowing for snow levels to drop down to about 6500′ by Thursday afternoon.  A band of snowfall will likely occur with the passage of a cold front, before snow turns more showery during the afternoon.
