SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Snow showers have been on and off for the holiday weekend, but after several weak disturbances, a strong band of snow is impacting Northern Utah Sunday night.
St. George saw flakes fly Saturday night into Sunday, and Zion dealt with snow showers Sunday.
Meteorologist Alana Brophy answered Facebook Live questions on the Sunday evening snow that pushed into Salt Lake County.
Most areas will deal with about 1-3″ of snow in Northern Utah. Roads will be coated and become slick. Areas of Sandy and Murray were continuing to see heavier snow into the evening hours and could see up to 5″.
Seeing Snow? 1-3″ expected. This is the band of snow that prompted the winter weather advisory thru 9am tomorrow. Salt Lake County is seeing it now, it should lift out of SLC. It will continue to be a problem over I-80 toward Wendover into tonight. Stay w/ @abc4utah #utwx pic.twitter.com/EnGuFe6EDI— Alana Brophy (@AlanaBrophyNews) February 18, 2019
This is one of the biggest ski weekends of the year and our mountains continue to accumulate snow.
For much of Saturday and through Sunday afternoon, light snow showers were popping up in different parts of the state.
A look at some of the light snow showers earlier in the day in Davis County, these were followed by a heavier band of snow that will put down 1-3” in the North @abc4utah #utwx pic.twitter.com/c7ksOHfh9K— Alana Brophy (@AlanaBrophyNews) February 18, 2019
