Voters Tuesday won't receive the same fair weather treatment as trick-or-treaters, at least in northern Utah.
Showery weather with temperatures in the 50s is forecast for many areas of Utah on Election Day, said William J. Alder, meteorologist in charge of the Salt Lake office of the National Weather Service.Thursday's long-awaited but relatively mild storm left significant amounts of moisture in the valleys and mountains of northern Utah. The storm extended from Box Elder and Cache counties on the north to about Nephi on the south. Some rain fell in the western Uintas, but the rest of the state received little or no moisture.
Precipitation amounts: Alta, 1.46; Brighton, 1.10; Mountain Dell, 1.30; Hill Air Force Base, .68; Utah State University, .32; Brigham City, .45; Ogden, .80; Bountiful, .66; North Salt Lake, .83; Salt Lake International Airport, .41; Utah State University and Holladay, .58; Alpine, .33; Pleasant Grove, .41; Brigham Young University, .40; Payson, .11; Tooele, .20; and the West Desert Pumps, .19.
The weekend forecast for southern Utah calls for fair to partly cloudy weather with temperatures in the upper 60s and 70s. Isolated rain showers are expected over northern Utah mountains Sunday.
