Short-Term Forecast:

 Monday Night-Thursday:

A trough will push through Utah Monday night and bring 1-3 FEET of snow, to most mountain locations through Thursday.

Snow will start Monday night as a cold front stalls over NW Utah and transports moisture into the state.

This cold front will then slowly move to the east through the day Tuesday and into Wednesday, transporting copious amounts of moisture into the state.

By Wednesday night, the trough will progress a bit further east and push the cold front through Utah.

Snow will continue behind the front as moist, unstable, northwest flow allows the orographic lift to keep snow showers going.

This will continue through Wednesday night before decreasing Thursday.

By Thursday afternoon/evening the snow will taper off.

Winter Storm Warnings have been issued by the National Weather Service in anticipation of this.
