If your Easter bonnet hasn't already been blown away, it's likely to get wet Sunday as a storm front moves through the Wasatch Front. The good news is that the dousing is expected to come from rain, not snow.
Widespread showers and some thundershowers are forecast for Sunday, according to William J. Alder, meteorologist in charge of the Salt Lake office of the National Weather Service.The snow level should be about 6,000 feet during the day on Sunday and high temperatures statewide should fall from the 60s and 70s recorded Saturday to the upper 40s and 50s.
Anyone who headed to southern Utah to bask in warm temperatures and sunshine may get a nasty surprise Sunday, as that portion of the state is expected to get the most rain.
"Those who went south will probably get wetter than those of us who stayed up north," Alder said, noting that the storm front was pushing colder temperatures southward.
The front brought winds to the state on Saturday, with gusts reaching 49 mph in Cedar City, 38 mph at the Salt Lake Airport and 36 mph at Hill Air Force Base.
The storm should start tapering off by Sunday evening, with some scattered showers forecast for Monday. Temperatures will warm back up to near 60 degrees, but another storm could hit the Wasatch Front Wednesday.
