Storm bringing mountain snow
SALT LAKE CITY — Wednesday’s storm is going to be a mountain special. According to the National Weather Service, the Cottonwood Canyons could see a significant amount of snow.
“When all is said and done up there, we are looking at anywhere from about 12 to 16 inches of snowfall,” said NWS Meteorologist, Sam Webber.
Webber said the storm is expected to last through Thursday night.
And more snow could fall in the southern and central mountains. Webber said this type of snow is good for resorts. Brian Head Resort outside of Cedar City is already set to open Friday.
The storm will be heavy and wet to start and will get fluffier as the storm wanes.
