SALT LAKE CITY — Many Wasatch Front residents woke up to snow on the ground Saturday morning, as winter weather continues to stretch into the spring.
But the forecast shows winter should be on the way out over the next several days, as highs creep into the 50s before hitting the 60s by midweek.
Overnight into Saturday, the National Weather Service reported about 1.5 inches of snow at its Salt Lake City office. Davis County was still seeing a band of rain and snow after 9 a.m.
KSL chief meteorologist Kevin Eubank said Friday night that Utahns can expect "unsettled conditions" through the weekend, leading to scattered showers and some snow at higher elevations.
"We're not totally done with these storms yet," he said.
