Almost the entire state will see rain and/or snow through Tuesday with some locations seeing significant snow totals.

Total snow accumulations of 2 to 6 inches in the valleys with higher amounts on the benches, and 10 to 18 inches with locally higher amounts in the mountains.

The Fox 13 Weather team says anyone planning to travel across northern Utah and southwest Wyoming Monday should expect winter driving conditions including snow-covered roads and reduced visibility.

Temperatures behind the front are expected to be among the coldest the state has seen this season, meaning early blooming trees and plants may be damaged.

Strong gusty winds may cause blowing and drifting snow, particularly along mountain routes.
