The forecast calls for 2-6 inches in the valleys and up to 2 feet in the canyons

SALT LAKE CITY — Windy, wet and cold is what the forecast is calling for! With a winter storm warning in effect for most of northern Utah until Wednesday at 6 pm.

The weather started with a wet rain and snow mix early on Tuesday morning that caused some big traffic hiccups especially in southern Utah where the I-15 was closed early Tuesday with 15 semis that were overdriving the conditions.

 

The snow is going to start to stick around this afternoon, and KSL Meteorologist Grant Weyman is saying that the majority of the snow will be accumulating throughout the night and we can expect to wake up with the white stuff tomorrow morning where we can expect several inches of snow on the valleys tomorrow.

 

With the increase in snow in the mountains avalanche danger is high throughout the Wasatch, Western Uinta, and Bear River Mountains today with areas in the Cottonwood canyons expected to get up to 2 new feet of snow.
