Winter weather advisory in effect as second storm hits northern Wasatch Front
SALT LAKE CITY — Another storm will hit the northern Wasatch Front in waves, and a winter weather advisory is in effect for the area through Thursday night.
KSL meteorologist Kevin Eubank said the storm will produce snow during the morning commute and could impact the evening commute.
“Temperatures will be cold, with highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s. Look for a few inches (of snow) in the northern valleys, 3″-6″ on the benches and 6″-12″ in the Cottonwood Canyons,” he said.
The storm will impact morning commuters, particularly from Ogden northward.

With no (or very little) snow falling at the moment we plan to have a regularly scheduled start at all locations today. We will continue to monitor conditions throughout the day. Please take your time and travel safely.

KSL meteorologist Grant Weyman said Wednesday’s storm dropped 8.5″ inches of snow on Salt Lake City. By comparison, Utah’s capital saw 8.3″ of snow between November 2020 and January 2021.
He added Thursday’s storm will arrive in waves, and it will produce lighter snow — not the dense, heavy snow most of the state saw Wednesday.
