NORTHERN UTAH — A cold front moving through the state Sunday is bringing snow to northern Utah, and while valley roads will likely stay slushy mountainous areas will see accumulations.

Snow fell steadily in Salt Lake City for several hours Sunday, and the National Weather Service said as of about 6:30 the snow is moving toward central Utah.

The snow contributed to several crashes in Sardine Canyon, including a crash that injured a Highway Patrol Trooper who was checking on the victims of an earlier crash.

The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City says a stronger cold front will cause snow showers to develop early Sunday across northern Utah, continuing into Sunday evening across central Utah.

Valley roads will likely be wet or slushy, with some light accumulations of snow possible—particularly early Sunday morning in Salt Lake County and northward.

UDOT expects inclement conditions to begin as early as midnight in some areas.

Mountain and canyon roads will also see slush early Sunday but are expected to trend toward wet as the day continues.

Mountainous areas could see between 3 and 6 inches, with higher amounts possible in some isolated areas.
