People living along the northern Wasatch Front should expect frigid temperatures and gusty winds Sunday evening to Monday morning.

Canyon winds will develop Sunday night and peak between 3 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Monday, according to 2News Meteorologist Chase Thomason.

Davis County could see gusts up to 70 mph, while other east bench areas from Ogden to Salt Lake City will get winds up to 50 mph.

A high wind warning has been issued from Sunday at 8 p.m. to noon on Monday for the northern Wasatch Front. This comes after Utah experienced it's first snowfall on Sunday.

Gusty winds around 60 mph are likely Sunday through Monday afternoon near the canyons of Washington County.

Thomason says this is not a repeat of the windstorm Utah had in September.

However, isolated power outages and broken tree limbs are possible. It will also be very cold.

Wind chill temperatures expected for Monday's morning commute will be frigid, especially where there are gusty winds.

Actual temperatures will be in the teens along the Wasatch Front, however, it will feel like the temperatures will be in the single digits with below zero wind chills near the canyons, according to Thomason.

Davis County police say the cold temperatures will bring new hazards, so residents should bring their pets inside to keep them out of the elements.

Also, residents should be prepare for power outages, be careful with space heaters and ensure that propane heaters have enough ventilation.

Lt. Zan Robison with the Centerville City Police Department says residents should all be checking on their neighbors.

He also said to check and make sure anything outside can't blow away.

Thomason says the weather will heat back up by the weekend. Halloween on Saturday will be dry and in the 60s.
