SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A storm that’s already caused flooding in Oregon is making its way to Utah, and it’s expected to have an impact for several days.
Seventy-five-million Americans are under some sort of winter alert this week, and those in the Beehive State are no exception.
KSL TV’s meteorologist Grant Weyman said Wednesday will be the first of four days of a “multi-storm complex.”

He said southern winds have warmed the air, so precipitation in many areas will come in the form of rain instead of snow. Those winds will be sticking around through the day and into the night, which will keep temperatures warmer than they have been recently.
However, those temperatures started to drop in areas north of Davis County, where snow is expected Thursday.
The heavier rains are expected near the afternoon hours, but several inches of afternoon snow was forecast for areas near Ogden, Brigham City, Logan and Sardine Canyon.
Rain will be hitting most of the state, with St. George seeing some showers that will last into Thursday. The storm in the northern areas, though, will most likely drag into Saturday.
