SALT LAKE CITY — Temperatures will drop Wednesday night, creating icy conditions from the leftover snow.

A second storm system will move in Thursday morning, and it's expected to bring one to three inches of snow to the Wasatch Front, creating travel impacts throughout much of the western half of Utah.

"Already wet roads, combined with cold road temperatures will allow snow to quickly accumulate on roadways," a statement from NWS said. "These factors combined with holiday travel will create hazardous travel conditions along the Wasatch Front, I-15, I-80 and I-84 [Thursday]."

Winter driving conditions are expected through Thursday in canyons and mountain passes in northern Utah and southwestern Wyoming.

In central and southern Utah, snow is expected to accumulate along roadways in the mountains, except for the St. George area. Hazardous travel conditions are expected along I-15 and roadways west of the central Utah mountains.
Conditions will dry out Friday, but temperatures will remain below average.
