Heavy snowfall forecasted for Utah on Wednesday

PARK CITY, Utah — Powderchasers forecasts the next wave of snow on Wednesday. The storm is expected to cross over the Cascades in the Pacific Northwest on Monday before bringing snow to the four corners region, giving the Wasatch a high probability for heavy snowfall.

The start of the 2022/23 winter season has been colder and wetter than average for the Rockies and Pacific Northwest showing the signature of a La Niña effect, according to Powderchasers. In particular, the cooler air has allowed snow to build up at lower elevations than usual. These conditions have allowed Keystone and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado to be the first two ski resorts to open for the year.

The current projection has the Wasatch receiving 6 to 12 inches of snow, with a high probability that some will hit the southern part of the state bringing snow to Brian Head Resort.

Following the storm moving into the area on Wednesday, a second storm is projected to reach the Pacific Northwest on Thursday or Friday, bringing big snow totals. It is unclear at this moment how far south the storm will go.
