Episode Narrative Additional mid-level moisture moved into Utah in mid-May, helping to initiate Utah's first severe thunderstorms of 2012. In the first few days of the event, these were largely high-based thunderstorms producing gusty winds. A Pacific storm system then moved into the area on May 18th, primarily producing widespread rain in northern Utah. However, this storm also created strong downslope winds in the Uinta Basin, and helped to initiate thunderstorms in southern Utah capable of producing large hail.
Event Narrative The Bryce Canyon ASOS recorded a wind gust of 70 mph.
