The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Utah. It’s in effect from early Thursday morning through late Thursday night. The heaviest snow is forecasted to hit the area throughout the day on Thursday.
A second storm is forecasted to impact the area Friday – Saturday morning.
- 4-8″ of Snow On Thursday
“Enjoy the Sun while you can because it will be a stormy end of the week. The first storm system arrives Thanksgiving morning bringing snow to mid-high elevations and a rain and/or rain-snow mix to most valleys. The exception may be valleys in far northern Utah (e.g. Cache and Ogden valleys) which will likely see some accumulating snow Thursday.
Snow will likely continue in the Northern mountains on Friday with periods of rain/rain-snow mix in northern valleys. The main event (a strong cold front) arrives Friday night into Saturday morning and heavy mountain snow and accumulating snow down to valley floors looks likely for this period.”
– NOAA Salt Lake City, UT
The first storm will deliver snow to higher mountain valleys Thursday into Friday. The second storm will drop snow levels to valley floors Friday into Saturday.
The 6-10 day outlook calls for above average temperatures and above average precipitation in Utah.
