Alex Cabrero reporting Eyewitness News traveled to what could be considered "snow country" to get some snow predictions from people there.

We went into the mountains, up I-80, to Silver Creek near Park City. Then further east to Coalville, on I-84 to Henefer, and on to Morgan. At each stop we asked two questions to people: How much snow will fall? And why do you think that?

We started in Silver Creek, a place known for its mountains. But today, you really couldn't see any. The fog and gray clouds covered most of the view.

As for predictions on tomorrow's snowfall? "I think we're gonna get several feet, fresh powder, good turns, and it's time. It's just time we get some," one resident said.

Another predicted, "Eh, maybe six inches." That's quite a difference.

It started getting darker by the time we got to Coalville to ask people their snowfall predictions. Here, lots of wet roads from all the mist, and still plenty of gray. You could see some snow, and people here hope lots more is on the way.

"I would say a couple of feet because our last one we got quite a bit of snow up where I live in the mountains," Coalville resident Cindy Phelps said.

Penny Murdock, also a resident of Coalville, said, "Four feet. Well, because I lived in Seattle and I'm back and ready for snow."

By the time we made it to Henefer it was dark, but you could still see mist falling when you looked at a street light. Here, you can see more Christmas decorations than snow, but according to one prediction, that's going to change. "I think we're gonna get a lot because we're in Utah. Ha! I don't know!" Candice Anderson said.

Then we went to Morgan: more light mist falling, but even here more snowfall predictions. "Just the way it feels tonight, feels like we're going to get one of those good, old-fashioned storms. I'd say eight to 12 inches," Morgan resident Dennis Kelley said.

Lots of different answers from people; we'll find out tomorrow who's right.
