It's won't be "Snowapocalypse," but northern Utah was bracing for a significant winter-like storm late Friday through Saturday morning.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm advisory for a swatch of the state running from Logan in the north to Wendover in the west, and stretching south through Ogden, Salt Lake City and Provo to Nephi. Snowfall of 1-3 inches was expected along the valley floors with 2-5 inches along the benches and up to a foot in the mountains.
The storm was expected to kick in just in time for the Friday evening commute, starting as rain and then transitioning to snow later Friday night. Forecasters expected the area north of Interstate 80 to be hit hardest by the storm, which was expected to continue overnight and well into Saturday morning. The winter storm advisory, officially beginning 4 p.m. Friday, was to expire noon Saturday.
