The National Weather Service issued a high-wind warning for parts of southwestern Utah, including Delta, Fillmore, Beaver, Cedar City and Milford starting at 10 a.m. Thursday and lasting until 4 a.m. Friday. Those areas can expect sustained winds of up to 40 mph and gusts of up to 60 mph.

A larger chunk of Utah — including the Salt Lake, Tooele, Sanpete and Sevier valleys, the Great Salt Lake Desert and some mountain ranges — remain under a wind advisory until 4 a.m. Friday. Up to 30 mph winds are expected with gusts of up to 50.

Then, starting Friday morning, that wind advisory shifts to a winter storm watch as temperatures plummet.

Up to two feet of snow is expected to fall in the Wasatch Mountains until the storm moves out Sunday.

One to three inches of accumulation is expected in the valleys of northern Utah through Friday evening. That accumulation is expected mostly on grassy and elevated surfaces. However, meteorologists said there could be some slushy accumulation on bridges and overpasses or bench roadways.

Additional snow is expected to fall in the valleys on Saturday.

A winter storm warning will be in place for parts of Daggett County at 6 a.m. Friday. Up to 16 inches of snow is expected to fall in that area, which includes the cities of Dutch John and Manila.

That snow combined with strong winds means travel could be very hazardous or impossible in those areas.
