Temperatures will drop and winds will pick up Tuesday afternoon as a storm front moves into the Wasatch Front area, bringing snow to elevations above 6,000 feet.
William J. Alder, meteorologist in charge of the National Weather Service's Salt Lake office, said Monday temperatures could reach the low 70s. But with the approach of the front, which will bring showers and thundershowers to the valleys, temperatures will be in the mid-60s Tuesday and 50s Wednesday.October temperatures have been running about 1 1/2 degrees above normal, but that is expected to end this week as a second front moves in on Friday.
"Weather this week will be very unsettled with these two fronts coming in," Alder said. "This will be the first substantial precipitation of the new water year."
