Winter Storms Will Impact Travel in Northern Utah
A winter storm now over northern Utah will produce rain in valleys and snow at higher elevations. Wasatch Mountain areas could get up to 2 feet of snow, which is exactly what the ski resorts want to kick of their season.
Southern Utah will not get as much precipitation, but some valleys will see rain at times and some mountain areas will pick up a little snow. Snow is expected at today Bryce Canyon National Park.
This storm will end tonight or early tomorrow, as much colder air moves in.
Another powerful storm is expected to hit Wednesday. It will follow much the same track, hitting northern Utah with rain in valleys and snow in mountains.
Crews will be out plowing roads and major highways should stay open. However, there may be treacherous conditions at times in some areas. High-elevation secondary roads may become snowpacked.
Seasonal roads will now be closed for the season. These include:
Hwy 150 through the Uintas
Hwy 39 over Monte Cristo
Hwy 35 between Woodland and Hana
If you are traveling, take care and monitor weather forecasts.
