The penultimate day of March looks a lot more lion than lamb.
A storm arrives Sunday and will last most of the day as it dumps accumulating snow across much of the state. Six to 12 inches are coming to the northern and central mountains, with one to three inches in the valleys, according to the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City. One to four inches are on tap for the southern mountains and the Interstate 15 corridor south of Fillmore. Western Utah can expect a trace to an inch of snow.
Snow in the backcountry can spell danger, too: the Utah Avalanche Center predicts a considerable risk for slides in the Logan-area mountains on Sunday. The center also forecasts a moderate risk in the Salt Lake, Ogden, Provo, Uintas and Skyline-area mountains.
