SALT LAKE CITY — Another cold storm will move into Utah Wednesday night and brings chances for snow to the Northern Mountains and valleys through early Thursday afternoon.

Areas of light snow are possible for the morning commute on Thursday. The valley floors may experience some snow mixed during the morning hours but mainly, the snowy weather will impact high elevation passes, like Parley's and the Cottonwood Canyons.

Utah valley floors may experience anywhere from zero to two inches of snow between Wednesday night and early Thursday afternoon.

The Northern mountains may receive between two and six inches of snow.

There are hard freeze warnings in place for the Sevier Valley and Western Uinta mountains that take place from 9 p.m. Wednesday evening to 9 a.m. Thursday morning.
