SALT LAKE CITY — A lot more snow is on its way to the Wasatch Mountains this weekend.

A winter storm warning is in effect until noon Saturday for the mountains up and down the Wasatch Front, according to the National Weather Service of Salt Lake City.

The mountains are expected to receive anywhere from 1-2 feet of snow, while mountain valley areas like Huntsville could see an additional 3-9 inches of snow during the storm.

The winter storm is also expected to bring heavy winds along with it, with wind gusts between 40 to 50 mph.

“Travel could be very difficult to impossible. Areas of blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. Strong winds could bring down tree branches and produced isolated power outages early Saturday,” the NWS said in the warning.

A winter weather advisory will be in effect for Weber and Davis counties from 5 p.m. Friday to noon Saturday as well. Snow accumulations of 1-3 inches are expected on the benches, with locally higher amounts expected.

The wind may gust as high as 45 mph in the valleys as well, the NWS said.

Drivers should expect slippery road conditions, blowing snow and poor visibility at times.

Due to the expected high winds, the Utah Avalanche Center said it expects avalanche danger to “remain elevated through at least Sunday, especially on mid and upper elevation shady slopes.”
