Storms on the way; Holiday travel could be tricky!

Posted at 5:36 AM, Dec 22, 2021

SALT LAKE CITY — One more quiet day before rain and snow move back in! Clouds will increase today ahead of the first in a series of storms that will keep weather unsettled through early next week. Moisture streaming in from the southwest will keep it mild tomorrow, so as precipitation gets going, most of what we get in the valleys will be rain. Heavy mountain snow will begin early tomorrow with 1-2 feet possible by Christmas morning. That's great news if you're hitting the slopes but will make holiday travel difficult. Gusty winds could also bring blowing and drifting snow over the higher mountain passes. The best chance for valley snow along the Wasatch Front will be Friday evening, with less than an inch or two expected. The storm will be enough to break up the inversion and bring better air quality by the end of the week.
