Storm expected to dump snow on Utah through President’s Day

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A winter storm that’s already dropped more than a foot of snow on some parts of Utah is expected to continue through the day.

The National Weather Service says the snow that started overnight had left more than a foot in the mountains by Monday morning, and nine inches or more in cities south of Salt Lake, like Sandy and Orem.

Northern Utah’s Logan area saw even more, up to a foot in Cache Valley. Meteorologist Monica Traphagan says central and even southern Utah are also seeing the white stuff.

Traphagan says chilly overnight temperatures could also snarl the morning commute when people return to work from the President’s Day weekend.

Though the new accumulation will help an anemic snowpack, Utah would need more storms to get up to normal.
