A strong winter storm will impact most of the area today.

Snow will be widespread, with most accumulation expected south of Interstate 80. In general, an additional 2-6 inches are possible in the Central & Southern Mountains with 1-3 inches in most valleys. The farther north you are, the lighter accumulations will be. Very little if any accumulating snow is expected north of Weber County.

Strong canyon winds along the Wasatch Front & Cache Valley could continue to gust above 50 mph early in the morning. Winds should decrease after sunrise, but it could still be blustery.

Wind and snow will die down this evening, but a cold airmass will remain in place for another couple days.
