SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Cache County was the first area to be hit by the morning snowstorm Friday, and the storm will continue making its way south along the Wasatch Front.
This could mean issues for commuters who are hitting the roads later on in the day.
KSL meteorologist Grant Weyman said the storm could drop between 1 – 3 inches of snow in the valleys by Friday afternoon, and the mountains could see up to 10 inches.

The system is forecasted to make its way to Utah County by about 9 a.m., he said. It’s expected to taper off by the afternoon.
A road weather alert has been issued for most of the day Friday, and it includes I-15 north of Provo, 1-80 Tooele East, the entire route of I-84, and all canyon roads.
In Davis County, UDOT crews were called in about an hour early to prepare snowplows for the area’s roads. Officials are reminding drivers to move over and give space to those plows.
