A two-fisted storm system out of western Canada moved over northern Utah on Friday, building toward a weekend of periodic blowing snow and chilly temperatures.
The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory beginning 3 a.m. Saturday and running through 6 a.m. Sunday for the northern Wasatch Range. Up to 14 inches of snow, propelled by westerly winds of 20 mph, were expected in the mountains and several inches could blanket the region's valleys.
Forecasters said the first pulse of wintry weather was to begin in earnest late Friday night and early Saturday morning. The second pulse was to kick in Saturday night and early Sunday morning.
