SALT LAKE CITY — Parts of Utah saw snow throughout Tuesday afternoon, and will continue to do so into the evening as winter storm warnings and advisories remain in place.
The Wasatch Mountains north of Interstate 80 and the western Uinta Mountains could receive up to an additional 5-10 inches of snow before the alerts expire early Wednesday morning. While not as much as in the higher elevations, valleys in the northern part of the state could also see up to an inch of snow Tuesday.

Much of Utah experienced snowfall accumulation overnight, with 5 inches reported in Timberline, 4 inches in Holladay and 2 inches at Hill Air Force Base.
Snow totals since Monday:
- Alta - 14 inches
- Daybreak - 6 inches
- West Jordan Bench - 4.8 inches
- Cottonwood Heights - 4.5 inches
- Cedar City - 4.5 inches
- Payson - 4 inches
- Logan - 2 inches
With the mountain areas still expected to see some periods of heavy snow, winter driving conditions remain in those areas.
Conditions are also favorable for lake effect snow overnight and early Wednesday for the areas between Bountiful and Ogden. If the lake band develops, those areas could see up to 3 inches of snow.
Temperatures are also forecast to be well below average for this time of the year. The National Weather Service office in Salt Lake City said temperatures will feel more like mid-February than April, which will result in widespread hard freeze conditions in most valleys.
The arrival of rain and snow Monday night was preceded by strong winds throughout Utah. Gusts as much as 75 mph were measured in Signal Peak, while Cedar City experienced a 70 mph wind gust.
