Like a fading boxer on the ropes, a gasping winter was preparing one more counterpunch as seasonal contender spring moved in for the inevitable knockout.
In the wake of a balmy, sunny weekend in northern Utah, the National Weather Service predicted a storm system originating in the Pacific Northwest will slip over the Wasatch Front by Monday evening and will cover the entire state by Tuesday morning. A mix of mountain snowfall and valley rain showers, escalating to thunderstorms in some locales, were forecast for the Beehive State.
A Winter Weather Advisory was to kick in at 4 p.m. Monday and extend through 6 p.m. Tuesday for the Wasatch Front and western Uinta mountains. Fresh snow of 5-10 inches, with locally higher amounts, were expected across the Wasatch Range.
