Rain, hail reported across Northern Utah

OGDEN — Monday may be April Fool’s Day, but the weather is no joke.

Thunderstorms have brought rain and hail along the Wasatch Front, with reports of pea-size hail slamming down in Kaysville, said Dan Brown, metrological technician with the National Weather Service.

The slow-moving low pressure system across the state will continue to bring rain and hail storms through Monday night with the storms tampering off sometime Tuesday morning, said Mike Seamons, forecaster with the National Weather Service.

Lighting and hail will also be part of the storm system Monday night, with the snow level dropping to 7,000 feet so those traveling through the mountain passes Monday night should expect slush roads.

“The showers will be short-lived with temperatures approaching 70 degrees by Wednesday,” Seamons said.

Thursday, sunshine is in the forecast with temperatures in the low to mid-70s, Seamons said.

Dispatchers in Davis and Weber counties said Monday’s storms did not cause any serious traffic problems.
