SALT LAKE CITY — For those people who have been waiting for the arrival of snow, you may not be waiting for much longer.

According to the National Weather Service (NWS) out of Salt Lake City, there are two storms that are expected to impact Utah this week.

 

The first storm will produce accumulating snow in the northern mountains Monday evening into Tuesday. Light accumulation of snow in the valley is also possible with this storm.

The NWS also reports hazy conditions will continue in the northern valleys until at least Sunday morning. There will also be gusty winds in the Unita Basin on Sunday.

According to the NWS, the second storm will arrive late Wednesday, and will last through Friday. It potentially could impact the entire state. 

The forecast by the meteorologists at KSL, says Salt Lake City has a 70% chance of seeing a mixture of rain and snow on Thursday. There is also a 40% chance of snow and rain on Friday in Salt Lake City.

Once the second storm leaves Utah on Friday, the cold will set in. The high in Salt Lake City next Saturday is forecasted to be 32, with a low of 18.
