A significant two part storm is expected to move in Utah Thursday afternoon and continues at times through Sunday morning. The first piece of the storm will be a warm front that moves through northern Utah on Thursday afternoon/night with a bit of a break on Friday ahead of the cold front that moves through on Saturday afternoon. Look for snow to continue at times the entire time over many northern Utah mountain areas, snow changing to rain and ending during the day on Friday in many Wasatch Front valleys, snow returns to the valleys on Saturday night. For the first piece of the storm through Saturday morning plan on a general 5-10" of snow for most northern/central Utah mountains above 8,000 ft with local areas of 11-15"+. In the mountain valleys plan on a general 2-4" with local 5-7". In the Wasatch Front valleys plan on a general trace to 1/2" with local 1-3" focused benches of northern Utah county and Weber/Cache counties.
