According to NOAA, there’s a huge winter storm-a-brewing and Utah is looking to get blasted with snowfall later this week.
Up to 25″ could fall on the higher peaks of Little Cottonwood Canyon as a large, cold low-pressure system moves across the Great Basin and into the Wasatch, Uinta, and northern Rockies later this week. The front should give way to snowfall across Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, and Colorado by Sunday morning.
