An approaching storm will cross Utah late Friday night through Saturday.
In the mountains, the heaviest snowfall will be through sunrise.
Cottonwood Canyons will likely see 1-2 feet of snow. Most valleys will see 1-4 inches of snow, with some exceptions (this will depend on the zone where a snow band develops).
Due to the setup, there is still some uncertainty with which areas will see the heaviest snowfall through the day on Saturday. Here is a great explanation of snow bands from The National Weather Service:
Some valleys of northern Utah will see more significant snow totals due to a snow band developing during the day Saturday. The northern Wasatch Front is most likely to see the band, but some uncertainty remains about the precise location. Here's some more information. #utwx pic.twitter.com/l8CvVNUIcQ
