Something chilly this way comes

A major cold front is expected to move into Utah late this afternoon, bringing with it heavy rain, strong winds and the potential for mountain snow. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for northern mountains.

"We have a cold storm coming off the Pacific that will move into Idaho and Nevada Tuesday," said Mike Conger, a weather forecaster in Salt Lake City. "We expect strong winds, particularly in the western valleys, as high as 30 to 40 miles per hour, gusting up to 60 miles."

The storm, which may drop temperatures from the mid-80s to the low 50s in one day, is expected to barrel into northwest Utah late Tuesday afternoon or evening and push east across the state. There is a potential for thunderstorms and as much as an inch of rain falling on the foothills of the Wasatch Front, with three-quarters of an inch or greater in the valleys.

"There is a lot of precipitation along the front and behind it and the mountains will be getting the bulk of it in good amounts," said Conger. "We expect rain in the valley and snow above 8,000 feet ... We could get several inches."
