Think E.E. Cummings for Utah's Tuesday forecast, one where a wind will blow the rain away and blow the sky away and all the leaves away, and the trees stand.
And that prediction is not all existential poetic metaphor. The National Weather Service has issued a high wind watch for northwestern, northeastern and central Utah Tuesday late afternoon through Wednesday morning. Winds of 30-40 mph, with gusts beyond 50 mph, were expected as a cold front embraced the region.
High temperatures Tuesday for northern Utah will be in the mid-60s with a 20 percent chance of rain by nightfall. Overnight lows will be in the low-40s.
