Weather warnings and advisories

There’s a hazardous weather outlook in place for the western two thirds of Utah impacting the areas of Utah’s Dixie, Zion National Park, Glen Canyon Recreation Area and Southern Utah  mountains.

Valley inversions will remain in place through at least Monday, with patchy fog and deteriorating air quality across most northern and western valleys including the Wasatch Front.

A series of storm systems will impact the outlook area during the middle to latter portion of the upcoming week, bringing periods of mountains snow and a mix of snow and rain in the valleys. Be sure to monitor future forecasts and outlooks as considerable uncertainly exists regarding this series of storm systems; however, it appears likely inversions across northern and western valleys will break by midweek.
