Incoming weekend storm could deliver 7-15 inches of snow

PARK CITY, Utah — Two low-pressure systems are making their way into the western U.S. later this week. The southern system is taking aim at the Wasatch and could deliver between seven and 15 inches of snow here in Utah starting Saturday afternoon, continuing into Saturday night and Sunday. 

 The northern system will impact the Sierra beginning Friday afternoon into Sunday and forecasters seem certain the storm will deliver big in Mammoth, calling for between 12 and 18 inches of snow. 

Local Open Snow forecaster, Evan Thayer, says the weather will start to change on Thursday. Clouds will increase with light snow in the afternoon, mainly at higher elevations. Friday into early Saturday morning weather will be unsettled with the chance of snow showers.

The main system arrives in Utah Saturday. Thayer is forecasting temperatures to drop Saturday afternoon and is calling for snow levels down to as low as 5,000 feet. Though forecasting models are not in complete agreement, both Open Snow and Powder Chasers are calling for up to 15 inches of snow in the Wasatch by the time the storm pushes out on Sunday.

Both forecasters are calling for the weather to remain active into next week.
