Local effects

Winter’s coming back to Northern Utah for another round this week.

A strong, northwestern cold front will move into the state Tuesday, heading east across Utah Tuesday night and into Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service of Salt Lake City.

The front will bring intense snow showers, thunderstorms, and prolonged period of steady snow in the mountains. The Wasatch Mountains will be under a winter storm warning from noon Tuesday through 10 a.m. Thursday, and could see up to 1 to 2 feet of snow, the NWS said. Meanwhile, the mountain valleys could see 4-10 inches.

The valleys will see mainly rain Tuesday afternoon, but should see a change over to snow by Tuesday night. The Ogden area is expected to see less than 1 inch of snow while areas further south that experience the lake effect could see up to 3 inches of accumulation, the NWS said.

“Precipitation type may fluctuate at times, with a changeover from rain to snow with heavier precipitation,” the NWS said.

Drivers can expect snowy conditions Tuesday evening into Thursday morning, the Utah Department of Transportation said. The Interstate 15 corridor will likely see areas of road snow and slush, while travel on mountain roads could be difficult or impossible in the overnight hours.
