OK, so March isn't coming in like a lion. But, at least, the Utah version of the third month of the year could be one wet, irritable kitten.
The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for an area that included Utah's mountainous spine, from Logan running south through Ogden, Salt Lake City, Provo, Nephi, Richfield and Cedar City to St. George, as well as northeastern Utah's Vernal and central-eastern Utah's Price and Green River.
The advisory, which kicks in at 5 p.m. Friday and was to run through 5 p.m. Saturday, called for new snow of 5-10 inches in the mountains and a mix of rain and snow in lower elevations. Winds of 25-35 mph, with gusts topping 65 mph along the ridge lines, were expected to make travel through the passes icy and dicey.
