Typical February storm (35)
A more typical February storm is expected to to move into Utah on Tuesday afternoon/night with a initial cold front that stalls over central Utah, the coldest air moves in on Wednesday afternoon with snow levels dropping to the valley floors. Look for most of the snow to fall with the cold front on Wednesday, lingering snow showers through sunrise or so on Friday in a few local mountains areas with possible lake effect in the SLC valley. Plan on a general 8-14" (local 15-25") for most central/northern mountains above 7,000 ft. Look for 2-5" (local 6-9") for the southern Utah mountains, northern mountain valleys, and local bench areas in the SLC valley. In the lower valleys along the Wasatch Front plan on a general 1/2-2".
