SALT LAKE CITY — A more potent storm rolls in this afternoon.

A Winter Weather Advisory now also includes our valleys along the Wasatch Front!

This storm will bring snow showers across the state -- to our mountains AND valleys.

Snow is likely this afternoon, heavy at times (mainly in the higher elevations).

How snowpack levels will impact Utah's historic drought

The Thursday evening commute expected to be messy.

Any snow we see will stick quickly because of cold road temperatures.

Snow forecast totals through Saturday at 2 a.m.

Snow then continues tonight with a burst tomorrow morning, impacting both the Friday AM and PM commutes.

Then, snow tapers off Friday night.

We're not staying completely dry this weekend. We will have scattered snow showers Saturday morning with sunshine mixed in. Finally drying out Saturday night. That's when it turns super cold (Sunday morning)!
