PARK CITY, Utah — Snow is expected throughout Utah’s mountains Tuesday afternoon through early Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

“Given the warm nature of the system, snow levels will be high initially, so best accumulations will be above 8,000 feet,” said the NWS.

Confidence is high that all Utah mountains will see at least some snow. It is anticipated that most locations in the central and southern mountains will see 6-12 inches, with locally higher amounts in the Tushar Mountains, and near Brian Head.
