Look for mountain snow to move in mainly after 12/1 am on Saturday with rain mixed in as high as 8,000 ft, rain developing in the valleys mostly after 7/8 am on Saturday then transitioning to snow in the afternoon hours with the arrival of the cold front. Snow is expected to continued at times in the mountains on Saturday night as a moist and unstable northwest flow sets up that will also allow local snow to continue in the valleys/benches. As of now plan on trace-2" in the valleys with this storm, 3-5" benches, 6-10" mountain valleys, and 11-24" for the Wasatch mountains. Sunday should be the best ski day of the year so far. Enjoy!

The second half of the first storm in the series is expected to move through this afternoon and continue through 10 am on Friday. Plan on rain in the valleys with another 5-12" snow for the Wasatch Mountains, snow mixed in as low as 4,500 ft by Friday morning. Look for a break in the rain/snow between 10am on Friday and 12am Saturday. The second in a series of storms is projected to move in on Saturday and continue into the morning hours on Sunday with valley rain changing to snow on Saturday night. Right now it looks like 14-24" of snow for the wasatch mountains with this storm, 4-8" for the mountain valleys, 3-5" for the benches, and 1-3" for the valleys.
The wasatch mountains have received 5-15" yesterday and last night with more on the way. The snow is on the heavy side and upside down which is what we need to cover the rocks but not your typical Utah powder. Temperatures ended up being to warm in the valleys and most of the precipitation fell as rain which was not expected.

The first in a series of winter storms is expected to move into Utah today as a warm front with snow at times for northern Utah, snow transitions to rain on Wednesday night into Thursday from south to north in the valleys. Through 5 pm on Thursday plan on trace-2" snow for the lower valleys along the Wasatch front from Ogden south, 2-5" for the benches, 5-10" for the mountain valleys and valleys north of Ogden, and 10-20" for the Wasatch mountains! The first storm is expected to continue Thursday night into Friday morning as the cold front moves through, a second storm is projected to move in on Saturday, and a third on Monday.
