Timelapse: Cold but warming on horizon
Wednesday , June 18, 2014 - 3:04 PM
Mother Nature opened the ice box on Saturday last week and unleashed cooler temperatures for the past several days. Even though snow fell in the mountains, don’t put those short-sleeve shirts and flip flops away just yet, a warming trend is in the works for the weekend.
As of 8 a.m. Wednesday, the National Weather Service reported 1.3 inches of rain fell near Echo Dam along the Weber River in the 24-hour storm. Along the other side of the mountains the most rain fell in Brigham City with 1.2 inches of water. Most of Weber and Davis County saw about eight-tenths of an inch, which Syracuse barely saw a tenth of an inch of the melted ice.
Wednesday will still be much cooler than normal, but expect temperatures to rapidly rise by the weekend reaching a high of nearly 90 degrees in the Ogden area by Saturday.
On Tuesday, the National Weather Service reported heavy rain and cold winds throughout the areas of Weber and Davis counties, and issued a hazardous weather alert. A menacing funnel cloud, brought on by the sudden cold front, hovered over the Willard Bay area at about 11 a.m., the NWS confirmed.
