Weather

This weekend, a slow-moving winter storm will impact Utah beginning Friday afternoon and lasting through Sunday night.

The entire state will see accumulating snow through Sunday, but the mountains will reach the largest amounts of snow. The northern mountains are predicted to receive one to two feet of snow, while the southern mountains are predicted to receive 10 to 20 inches. Valleys North of 1-70 are expected to receive 4 to 8 inches of snow.

The Utah Climate Center has released a new inversion forecast for Utah, which predicts a return to inversion conditions through the end of next week, before a cleaning period begins mid-February.

The latest climate forecast for the inversion changes the predictions for the coming inversion. Rob Gilles said this current inversion is shaping up to be a much bigger event, rather than a single instance.

"What was predicted to be a late January to early February probability of inversion is now connected to the current ridging and together form a huge event," he said. 

A cold front is a-comin' but we could enjoy some above-average temperatures while we wait for it.
