SALT LAKE CITY — Another big snowstorm is on the way to Northern Utah this weekend.
“Snow will develop Friday morning and continue, heavy at times through Friday evening,” the weather service said in the warning. “A lull in snowfall is possible Friday night into Saturday morning before snow becomes widespread and heavy later Saturday afternoon through Saturday night.”
The valleys are expected to get 3 to 8 inches of snow, with localized amounts up to 12 inches, while the Wasatch Mountains could see 10-24 inches. Some areas in the mountains will receive 30 inches, the service said.
Winter driving conditions will develop, including road snow and reduced visibilities along Interstates 15 and 84, and U.S. Highway 89.
Heavy road snow and gusty winds will occur along I-15 from Ogden to Salt Lake City from 10 a.m. Friday to 5 p.m. Saturday, though drivers can expect wet roads south of Layton, the Utah Department of Transportation said.
Highway 89 will experience heavy road snow later in the afternoon Friday, starting around 1 p.m. from Ogden to points south.
“A Winter Storm Warning for snow means severe winter weather conditions will make travel very hazardous or impossible. If you must travel, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency,” the weather service said.
