Look for tr-1" in the northern Wasatch front valleys, 2-3" in the Salt Lake/Tooele Valley with locally higher amounts benches, and 1-3" in Utah valley.

Mostly going south

A cold front is expected to move into Northern Utah this afternoon/tonight then stall over Salt Lake County and weaken as the main trough of low pressure moves through southern California/Arizona over the next several days. Most valleys in the state below 5,000 ft will see rain but watch for local Trace -1" of snow as low as the valley floor where the frontal band stalls tonight. By Saturday at 5pm plan on 2-4" mountain valleys, a general 3-8" for the Wasatch mountains above 7,000 ft, and 6-14" in the central and southern Utah mountains.
