Breathe easy, Utah the stormy weather is moving on and warmer, drier days are ahead.
The storm worked its way south, bringing a mix of rain and snow in the valleys and snow in the mountains, and was expected to taper off by Saturday evening. The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City forecasted that the heaviest precipitation would be over southern and central Utah. Meteorologists expect the storm to leave up to two feet of snow across the southern Utah mountains and eight to 16 inches on the peaks in the central part of the state.
Before it left, the strom dropped heavy snow in central Utah, bringing down a number of power lines, which knocked out service to about 2,360 Rocky Mountain Power customers in four Sevier County communities. By early Saturday evening repair crews had reduced that number to about 300, company spokesman Dave Eskelsen said. The remainder were expected to be back on line before midnight.
