Significant Winter Storm Across Utah



Forecast Period: 12 P.M. Friday through 6 P.M Saturday

Text Updated: Friday 01/19/2018 at 12:45 A.M.

 

A significant winter storm will impact Utah beginning Friday afternoon and continues through Saturday.  Snow will arrive in northern Utah Friday afternoon and slowly move SE across the state Friday night and Saturday.  This storm will bring widespread snow showers and road snow accumulations to the vast majority of the state with the exception of some of the lower valleys in southern Utah.  The Friday evening commute will be impacted from Salt Lake City and northward, while it appears snow will hold off until just after the commute for the southern Wasatch Front.  Significant travel impacts are expected for all mountain routes across the state as well as I-80 from SLC to the WY border, I-15 from Cedar City northward and much of I-70.  The majority of road snow accumulations for the Wasatch Front will be Friday evening through Saturday while eastern Utah will see most road snow during the day Saturday into Saturday night.  Motorists are advised to use caution and TravelWise. The following routes will experience weather-related travel concerns during the forecast period:

 

-  I-15, ID border to Black Ridge
