Partial Sunshine Before a Shower Passes Through NH Monday Young Artist’s Inspiring Mural Adorns Waipahu School Campus

Today marks the first day of spring, as the vernal equinox takes place later this afternoon, with the direct rays of the sun striking the equator.

This results in a nearly equal amount of day and night all over the world.

However, in the northern hemisphere, where we are, the days will now start to become longer than the nights, and we will start to warm up.

This morning, Salt Lake is above freezing at 41 degrees, while Park City is at 28 degrees and Evanston is at 18 degrees.

Most valleys are in the 30s and 40s, and St.

George is starting out at 44 degrees.

There were some showers overnight, but they have tapered off in the south.

In the north, there is still some light rain and snow in the mountains, resulting in wet roads in some areas.

A few little disturbances are expected to flow in from the southwest today, but the main part of the current storm is expected to slide in late in the day, bringing a better chance of more widespread wet weather.

As a result, temperatures will be running a little bit below average for this time of year, peaking at 49 degrees in Salt Lake, which is below the average of 57 degrees.

Valley rain and mountain snow are expected to develop today, with the possibility of some thunderstorms in the evening.

The mountains could see heavy snow at times, with the possibility of 10 to 20 inches piling up above 7000 feet by late tonight into tomorrow morning, and even more potentially in the cottonwoods.

Any amounts in the valleys are expected to be pretty light, although a few inches along the Wasatch Back are possible.

This is just the beginning of a series of storms expected to hit this week, with more showers continuing in St.

George through Wednesday.

By Thursday, it will become partly cloudy with temperatures hovering in the low to mid 50s.

For northern Utah, more valley rain and mountain snow are expected off and on for the next four or five days.

Later in the week, the storms are expected to get colder, with a better chance of snow mixing in with those at times.

The best chance of just valley snow is expected on Friday night into Saturday, with some minor accumulations possible.

By Sunday, the weather will start to dry out, but behind the storm, it is expected to get colder, with morning temperatures dropping below freezing, and in the afternoon, temperatures will only make it up near 40 degrees.
