SALT LAKE CITY — Another round of snow may impact northern Utah Wednesday evening into early Thursday morning, meteorologists say.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for communities along the Wasatch Front and in the Tooele Valley, where snow accumulations of 1 to 4 inches or more is possible Wednesday evening into overnight hours. A similar alert for higher-elevation areas in southern Utah is set to expire Wednesday evening, as a storm moving in from the south passes through the region.

KSL meteorologist Matt Johnson explained that early projections indicated that the storm system would move south of Utah, impacting Arizona. However, the system changed course, impacting Utah in time for the Wednesday evening commute.

"That means snow for the Wasatch Front," he said. "It won't be heavy, but, at times, it could be moderate."

The Utah Department of Transportation advises the snow may result in some travel during the evening commute, especially toward the end of the afternoon rush hour. The agency adds that mountain routes will be slick from snow through the night before the storm exits out of the area.

"Slow down and use caution while traveling," the weather service advises.

The small storm is expected to clear out by Thursday but more snow is on the way Friday, Johnson said. He adds that another storm system, which is projected to be even stronger, is forecast for Sunday into Monday.

Full seven-day forecasts for areas across Utah can be found online, at the KSL Weather Center.
