SALT LAKE CITY — A winter storm is expected to make its way through most of the State of Utah tomorrow morning, bringing snow and strong winds.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been given for the mountain areas between 2 a.m. and 5 p.m. and the Valley areas from 2 a.m. to 11 a.m.

The National Weather Service sent out a tweet with a graph showing commuters when and what areas will be affected.

Most of the time impacted will be during the morning commute. FOX 13's weather team suggests leaving early to allow time for safe travel.

The advisory has caught the attention of Gov. Gary Herbert who announced on Twitter that state offices will be opening two hours later due to weather conditions.

State workers are advised to check with their local offices to see if they are impacted by the delays.
