(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The Wasatch Front could get some "lake effect" snow today.

And that's not all for the bad news.

The coldest air since last winter is expected to move into Utah.

The National Weather Service has issued a lake-effect snow watch for today.

Winds will be 10 to 20 miles per hour from the north, shifting to the northwest by afternoon.

There's a 60 percent chance of snow in northern Utah today.

Since the bench areas usually receive more snow than the valleys, University of Utah and Brigham Young University football fans should dress for the worst for today's game in Provo.

Weather officials say one to two inches of snow are possible in from Bountiful to Spanish Fork today.

That's if the "lake effect" kicks in with the right air flow moving across the warmer Great Salt Lake.
