Snow And Cold For New Years Eve

Travel will be difficult because of heavy snow today and tomorrow, then very cold temperatures will settle in for New Years Eve.

The latest forecast says Friday night temperatures may drop down near 0F in Salt Lake City. That’s mighty cold and so revelers need to dress accordingly. Many of the activities in Salt Lake will be indoors, and that will help people stay safe.

Snow is falling now and is expected to continue through today and Thursday. Before the storm ends, northern Utah valleys may get up to 8 inches of new snow. Mountain areas could get 3 or more feet. The Alta/Snowbird and Solitude/Brighton areas could get up to 4 feet of new snow.

Snow conditions will be good but temperatures will be frigid.

Road crews will be out in force but mountain passes will be treacherous. Take care if you are driving.

The Salt Lake Tribune has this news article about the storm.
