SALT LAKE CITY – The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for areas along northern Utah that is expected to remain in effect until Monday evening.

The warning applies to areas in Cache Valley, Box Elder County, portions of the Wasatch Front from Brigham City northward and the Great Salt Lake Desert near the Idaho border. The warning does not apply to the Weber or Davis county portions of the Wasatch Front, nor does it apply to Tooele County in northwest Utah.

An avalanche warning was also issued for portions of the state.

The winter storm warning is expected to remain in effect until 5 p.m. Monday. Precipitation slacked off Saturday afternoon, but according to the warning it was expected to pick up again.

“A break in the precipitation has developed across the warned area with linger[ing] precipitation in the form of light rain. Widespread rain and snow will develop again beginning late this [Saturday] afternoon…turning to all snow again during the evening.”

The warning indicates areas will receive snow fall between 10 and 18 inches with greater amounts possible in parts of Cache Valley.

Strong winds are also predicted, with gusts expected to be particularly strong along I-84 and State Route 30.

The warning urged drivers to use caution, particularly on I-84 and I-15 north of Tremonton.
