A potent storm system juiced by moisture from the Pacific Ocean could dump up to 2 feet of snow in northern Utah mountains between Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).
Central and southern Utah mountains could see up to 18 inches of snow by the time the storm exits Utah. Three to 6 inches are expected in northern and central valleys, and 6 to 12 inches could fall on benches.
The NWS issued a winter storm warning for northern Utah mountains from 11 a.m. Wednesday through 11 a.m. on Friday. Snow accumulations will impact travel through Logan, Parleys and other canyon passes. NWS forecaster Nanette Hosenfeld said valley commuters could be affected by the storm Wednesday evening, Thursday morning and Friday morning.
