SALT LAKE CITY — While a winter weather advisory for portions of northern Utah will expire later Saturday, a winter storm watch will begin Sunday morning and continue through Monday night.

Snow fell across Utah Saturday morning, contributing to dozens of slide-offs and other minor crashes.

Salt Lake City International Airport saw 6.1 inches of snow Saturday, which ties a daily snowfall record for that date set in 2008. Other valley areas saw similar or even greater amounts of snow.

The snow is expected to taper off by Saturday evening, but more snow was expected starting Sunday afternoon.

Mountain areas are expected to see 1 to 2 feet of snow Sunday through Monday, in addition to the foot or so they received earlier Saturday. Valley areas could see 2-4 inches in that same time period, while benches are likely to see as much as 4-8 inches. Winter conditions are expected on northern Utah roadways Sunday and Monday.

In southern Utah a winter storm watch is in effect Saturday through late Monday night. Mountainous areas in southern Utah could see 1-2 feet of snow. Rain is expected in St. George and other areas of lower elevation.
