SALT LAKE CITY — If you haven’t noticed already, there’s a good amount of snow on the ground in Northern Utah. For many this is the first snowfall of the season, but the snow and colder weather may soon bring an unwelcome guest: inversion. 

The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City is reporting that roughly 2-5 inches of snowfall is on the ground throughout Weber and Davis counties. 

Nick Carr, a meteorologist with the NWS, said reported snowfall in lower elevations has ranged from 1.5 inches of snowfall in Layton to around 7.7 inches of snow around the North Ogden bench. 

Higher elevations have received 12-16 inches in many areas, Carr said.

However, if you are looking for more snow, you may have to wait some time, Carr said. The storm that brought the snow to Northern Utah looks to be heading toward Tooele County, Carr said.

According to Carr, the next possible snowfall won’t be for some time, as temperatures will gradually increase and could reach the low 40s late in the week.

The impending weather for this week will likely bring inversion rather than snow, Carr said. 

A winter weather advisory began at noon Sunday for much of the Wasatch Front, and the advisory is scheduled to end at 4 p.m. Monday.
