PARK CITY, Utah — A major winter storm has reached Park City after moving South through Northern Utah. This system is expected to be one of the most “impactful of the season” with reported snowfall rates in excess of 2″/hr. 18″ – 24″ of snow is predicted for Park City while the Utah Avalanche Center is estimating somewhere between 32-42″ of new snow in the mountains by Thursday morning. With all that new snow the UAC urges caution –
“We have a lot of water, snow, and wind on tap for the next few days. The avalanche danger is going to rise, the storm snow will be unstable, and we are going to see avalanches within the new snow.”
UDOT advises that winter driving conditions exist and that Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning commutes look to be highly impacted.
The Utah Avalanche center says that snowfall will remain heavy overnight, and winds will transition more northwesterly. Overnight snow totals could be between 10-20″ of new snow, with the high-end totals being closer to 25″ of new snow with almost 2.0″ of water. Storm totals continue to rise, looking to be somewhere between 32-42″ of new snow by Thursday morning.
