KSL Meteorologist Grant Weyman said that Utah County and southern areas of the state may see more snow accumulations from this storm, which he expects to continue through Wednesday.
Here are the forecast snowfall totals for Sunday evening through Tuesday morning. Confidence is generally high in these ranges except for Salt Lake, Tooele, and Utah Valleys where the band could set up further north (increasing totals) or further south (decreasing totals). #utwx pic.twitter.com/KM6MHcMV3K

Early Monday morning, Alta Ski Resort advised skiers that unless they had a parking reservation already, they’d have to find another way to get themselves up the mountain, including catching a ride with someone who already has a reservation or taking a bus.
