Winter storm watches issued for Utah


SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4) – The National Weather Service released two new winter storm watches for Utah ahead of Monday night’s storm. This storm comes on the heels of the weekend storm which also prompted warnings.

The first is for Northern Utah and will begin late Monday evening and remain in place until Thursday morning. This is for the Wasatch and Uintah mountains and snow is expected to fall between one and two feet, with some areas potentially reaching three feet of snow.

High winds will also be a problem during this time and blowing snow could make driving even more dangerous. This is especially true for seasonal routes like Monte Cristo and Mirror Lake. Pay attention to any travel during this time.

The second is in southern Utah and will affect the central and southern mountains as well as the Wasatch Plateau and Book Cliffs. This winter storm watch will begin Tuesday afternoon and continue late Wednesday evening. One to two feet of snow can be expected and winter driving conditions will be in place.

We will be tracking these storms and bringing you the latest information both live and online here at ABC4 News.
