SALT LAKE CITY — A much-needed winter storm may finally be on the way, helping to alleviate the issues Utah has seen without much snow this winter.
The current winter season has been unusually dry, with ski resorts struggling and dangerously low surface water levels across the state.
Soil moisture levels have not only hit record lows, but beat previous records by a huge margin.
Help may be on the horizon as a storm is expected to bring snow to the area Friday, with heavy accumulation in the mountains and some on the valley floor.
Light precipitation is expected to fall as early as Friday morning, with widespread valley rain and mountain snow during the afternoon and evening hours. Commutes are expected to impacted by the storm.
There will be periods of rain and snow over the weekend, with the storm tapering off early Sunday.
