Cold winter storm - Heavy snow in areas!

A strong cold front is forecasted to move quickly through northern Utah on Monday night then stall over central/southern Utah on Tuesday, finally moves out of the state on Wednesday morning. Look for widespread snow with the cold front, lighter snow showers will continue at times behind the front through Wednesday focused over the mountain areas that do well in a northerly flow and south of the Great Salt Lake/Utah Lake/Bear Lake. Plan on a general 6-12" (8-14" Cottonwoods) of snow for the northern and Utah mountains above 7,000 ft with local 12-18" for the Oquirrhs/Uintas, 12-20"+ for the central/southern Utah mountains. Northern Utah valleys are projected to see a general trace-3" of snow, 2-5" benches, local 5-10"+ in the Tooele valley and south end of Utah valley along with many western central/southern Utah valleys. See below image for model projected snow fall through 5am Thursday.
