Storms were expected to blanket much of Utah with up to half a foot of snow in northern Utah’s valleys and depths of two feet or more in the mountains by late Tuesday night.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning, beginning 6 p.m. Monday and running through 9 a.m. Wednesday, for the northern half of portions of eastern Utah. The warning area extended from Logan in the north to Wendover in the west and Vernal in the east, and running south through Salt Lake and Utah counties to just north of Nephi.
