April snow showers bring fresh powder to Utah mountains
SALT LAKE CITY — The valleys of the Wasatch Front likely won’t receive much accumulation from this April snowstorm, but the mountains will pick up some much-needed fresh powder.
KSL Meteorologist Grant Weyman said some high-elevation spots could see around half a foot of new snow.
“It’s not bringing us a lot of wet weather, just mainly some wet roadways,” Weyman said. “The mountain areas could do quite well by the afternoon hours. They’ve had some overnight snow, some additional snow — I think the totals for the mountains out of this storm will be anywhere from six inches to about ten inches in the very high elevations.”
High temperatures Tuesday will register about 20 degrees lower than the day before from this April snowstorm.

On Tuesday morning, crashes on I-15 and I-80 impacted the morning commute as drivers navigated the April snow.

But as quickly as it arrived, the sun will make its return by tomorrow.
“Tomorrow sunny and 64, sunny and 68 on Thursday,” Weyman said.
By Saturday, forecasters called for highs in the upper 60s again.
