SALT LAKE CITY — Snow is on the way for Utah’s mountains on Friday. 

The National Weather Service of Salt Lake City has issued a winter weather advisory from 11 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, to 5 p.m. Friday for the Wasatch mountains, with snow accumulations of 6 to 12 inches possible. 

Snow levels will fall below 6,000 feet Friday morning, the advisory said. Expect to see snow-covered roads and reduced visibility while driving. 

The snow is part of a cold front that will move through Northern Utah on Thursday night and into Friday, the weather service says. 

“Valley rain and mountain snow will develop over northern Utah during the day Thursday,” the service said, adding that precipitation will increase Friday morning before it begins to taper off later that night. 

Temperatures will remain in the high 50s in Ogden Thursday before dropping to a high of 43 degrees Friday, according to the forecast. Little to no snow accumulation is expected for the valleys.
