Thursday's Pinpoint Forecast: Here. We. Go. Today is the last day of above average temperatures and sunshine. Skies will be mostly sunny with increasing late day clouds. Highs will be in the 40s and 50s for northern and central UT, 60s to around 70 down south. Friday, a weak cold front will produce a light mix of rain and snow for northern and central UT in the morning. Roads along the Wasatch Front should mainly just be wet with temperatures slightly above freezing, but from around 5000' (Bench level) and above, there could be a light accumulation of snow. The mountains could see 2-5". That precipitation will move into southeast UT for midday and the afternoon. Highs will be cooler, only in the 40s up north, 50s and 60s down south. Saturday, the big storm with remnants of Super Typhoon Haiyan will hit the state. Snow will be heaviest for northern and central UT in the afternoon and evening. Southern UT will see a little precipitation, but moreso wind and colder temps. Lake effect snow should develop Saturday night into Sunday morning enhancing snow totals. 3-6" should be a common accumulation from Cache Valley down to the Wasatch Front over to Park City. The higher mountain valleys down to the Wasatch Plateau will pick up 6-12", and the higher elevations of the northern Wasatch will get 10-18". It will be much colder and windy Saturday and Sunday. Next week starts out quiet with moderating temperatures.
