SALT LAKE CITY — A winter storm is expected to bring several of inches of snow to Northern Utah’s mountains and valleys starting late Friday afternoon.
A winter weather advisory for the Wasatch Mountains starts at noon Friday and will last until 9 a.m. Saturday.

At least 1-3 inches of snow accumulation is possible in the valley.
“A prolonged period of moderate to heavy snow is possible for the Utah mountains, as well as many of the valleys of Utah and southwest Wyoming,” the NWS said in the storm watch notice.
Snowfall is expected to start mid-Friday afternoon in Weber and Davis counties, and will impact Friday evening’s commute. The Utah Department of Transportation said “significant travel impacts are expected for all mountain routes across the state” and on Interstate 80, Interstate 15 and Interstate 70.
UDOT recommends that travelers monitor the forecast and use caution while traveling on snow covered roadways.
