Utah Weather Alert

This is what is predicted for us tonight and tomorrow, as we are in the Southern Utah mountains! Oh, my!! I guess my trip to Zion National Park is out.

… WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO 4 PM MDT THURSDAY…

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN SALT LAKE CITY HAS ISSUED A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR SNOW… WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO 4 PM MDT THURSDAY. THE WINTER STORM WATCH IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT.

THIS WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IS FOR THE SOUTHERN MOUNTAINS OF UTAH.

SNOW IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP ACROSS THE SOUTHERN MOUNTAINS THIS EVENING. THE HEAVIEST SNOWFALL WILL DEVELOP LATE TONIGHT… AND REMAIN HEAVY AT TIMES THROUGH EARLY THURSDAY AFTERNOON. THE SNOW WILL TURN SHOWERY LATER THURSDAY AFTERNOON… WITH ACCUMULATING SNOWS ENDING OVER MOST AREAS LATE IN THE DAY. STORM TOTAL ACCUMULATIONS OF 10 TO 18 INCHES ARE EXPECTED FROM THIS EVENT.

WINDS ARE EXPECTED TO BECOME STRONG AND GUSTY WITH THE PASSAGE OF THIS STORM SYSTEM. AREAS OF CONSIDERABLE BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW ARE POSSIBLE THURSDAY.

And this is what we drove through on Vail Pass, CO yesterday, and the snow was primarily the day before and today. It did snow on us as we passed through, however, so this has definitely been an interesting trip.
