SALT LAKE CITY — Another wave of wintry weather is expected to weave through northern Utah Thursday ahead of a stronger storm this weekend.
Valleys will see mostly wet roads, with up to an inch of snow accumulation in some areas along the Wasatch Front, according to KSL Weather Meteorologist Grant Weyman. The weather is expected to come through northern Utah between 7 a.m. and about 12 p.m., he said.
High-elevation areas such as Parleys, Weber and Sardine canyons may see a few more inches of snow, Weyman said.
More snow showers on the way... we expect the window to be between 7am and about 12 pm. Some accumulation-- but mainly on grassy areas in the valleys. pic.twitter.com/m4pnjOWSjr— Grant Weyman (@KSLweyman) January 9, 2020
A stronger storm moves in Saturday and could dump more snow in the valleys, according to Weyman. Northern Utah is expected to see more snow showers on Sunday and again on Tuesday, he added.

Logan is forecasted to receive 1-2 inches during that time, but most other areas in northern and central Utah are predicted to see less than an inch, the weather service said.
