Overnight snowfall will impact roadways across Utah on Sunday morning, though forecasters predict the snow will stop by the afternoon, lingering longest in the mountains.
Salt Lake City — which remains under a winter weather advisory until 11 a.m. with other cities in the Salt Lake and Tooele valleys and the southern Wasatch Front — is predicted to get 2 to 4 inches of snow in the storm. Up to 6 inches of localized snow is possible with the advisory area, according to the National Weather Service.
Areas in Cache Valley, the northern Wasatch Front, the Wasatch Mountain valleys, the Wasatch mountains north and south of Interstate 80, the western Uinta Mountains, the Wasatch Plateau and central mountains are also under a winter weather advisory until 11 a.m.
Forecasters predict the storm will impact Interstate 15 from the Idaho border south to Cedar City, in addition to Interstate 70 from the Interstate 15 junction across the San Rafael Swell, and Interstate 80 from Utah’s West Desert into Uinta County, Wyoming.
The Utah Department of Transportation is urging drivers to use caution along the interstates and are predicting minor and intermittent weather-related road concerns through Sunday morning, included decreased visibility.
Snow will return to Utah on Monday, likely hitting Salt Lake City after 11 p.m. Forecasters predict the city will get less than an inch of new snow into Tuesday. Temperatures will rise to a few degrees above freezing by 3 p.m.
