Weather forecast for Saturday evening, April 30, 2016:
A strong east wind event is expected tonight and tomorrow for the northern Wasatch Front (areas north of SLC) as well as for areas near canyons along the Wasatch Front. 30-50 mph winds, with gusts as high as 70, are expected in these areas tonight and tomorrow. Winds will eventually begin to taper off Sunday afternoon. These strong winds are caused by a storm moving across Arizona. This storm has allowed a strong easterly pressure gradient across northern Utah, producing these strong winds. It is also producing scattered showers and thunderstorms in central and southern Utah. Those showers will continue on-and-off through Monday.
