More snow coming for parts of Utah overnight

Weather

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4) – Here we go again! After a robust storm dumped snow throughout the state Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, another system is targeting Northern Utah Wednesday night.

This storm won’t be as strong compared to the one Tuesday night, but we are still going to see some accumulating snow, mainly in central and northern Utah. A “Winter Weather Advisory” will go into effect at 2 AM for our valleys and mountain in Northern Utah. Impacts are possible from Utah County to Cache Valley. 

 The storm is moving through northeast Nevada where there are winter weather advisories are already posted. By the overnight, the snow will begin to spread into Utah with the bulk of it arriving close to if not a little before daybreak on Thursday.  Drivers will face tricky travel during the Thursday morning commute, and with the chance for scattered snow showers through the day, the evening commute could be icy and slick. Drivers should prep for possible delays. Snow showers gradually taper Thursday night into early Friday. 

Snow totals won’t be as impressive compared to last night as mentioned, but we still will see additional accumulations of a trace to four inches in the valleys, 3-6″ on the benches, 4-8″ for mountain valleys like Ogden Valley, and half a foot to a foot possible in our mountains. 

By Friday morning, drier air will begin to move in which will mean the end to snow, but as drier air moves in, so will some chillier air. We’ll continue to see highs in the low to mid-30s this weekend, but at night we’ll see lows drop into the teens along the Wasatch Front Friday and Saturday night while the Wasatch Back could see single digits! Mostly dry skies look to persist through the weekend, but changes could arrive ahead of Christmas.
