A big winter storm which began Monday afternoon in Southern Utah is ramping up the snowfall Tuesday night as a cold front swept through the region earlier this morning.
The days of 50 degree high temperatures we experienced to begin February are gone as a winter chill has settle back into the region.
Moderate to heavy snow will fall overnight through Wednesday morning across portions of Northern and Central Utah with modest to significant snow accumulations. Heavy mountain snow will continue through Wednesday night.
The morning and evening commutes will be severely impacted Wednesday so allow for extra time, slow down and always be ready for winter driving conditions. Travel into the mountains is NOT recommended at this time.
The Great Salt Lake has the potential to add to the snow totals across the Wasatch Front Valleys from Farmington to Lehi to Tooele during the day Wednesday which could make for whiteout conditions during the heaviest snow bands.
