Two storm systems are on their way to Utah for the holiday weekend, with mountain snow likely on Thanksgiving and the possibility of valley snow on Saturday.

Winter weather advisories have been issued for several counties in Utah for Thursday's storm. Visit this page for the latest weather alerts and warnings for your area.

Thursday's storm is expected to deliver 3-8 inches of snow in mountain areas above elevations around 5,500-6,000 feet. Mountain passes and roadways in higher elevations should expect winter travel.

For those planning to travel, the highest chance for wet roads on Thursday will be during the late morning and early afternoon hours.

Friday is expected to bring isolated snow showers in the mountains and cold rain for the valley areas.

A stronger cold front arriving Friday night will bring a heavier round of mountain snow, and it's possible valley areas could see between 1 and 4 inches of snow by Saturday afternoon.
