If Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about how Utah's mid-week storm system arrived, he might suggest that as it "grew higher and louder . . . the wind cried and sobbed like a child in the chimney."
Wednesday literally blew in with gusts of 50 mph or more and winds steadily whipping the Wasatch Front in the 30-40 mph range. That turned what would have been a mild morning, with temperatures in the 40s, into misery with a wind chill factor making the early hours feel like the teens.
On Thursday, winds were to be calmer, with daytime highs in the low- to mid-40s and an increasing chance of valley rains and mountain snowfall.
