Arctic front bringing blizzard conditions to Northern Utah, Southeast Idaho

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for Northern Utah from 3 p.m. Tuesday through 8 a.m. Wednesday. An arctic cold front is moving south and will affect the Northern Wasatch Front, including Cache Valley. One to three inches of snow are possible overnight Monday and an additional three to six inches of snow is likely late Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday evening. As much as eight to 18 inches of snow are possible for higher elevations. Besides the falling snow, high winds will be causing dangerous situations. Southerly winds of 15-30 mph with gusts to 45 mph are likely Tuesday afternoon, switching to northwest 25-40 mph with gusts to 50 mph late Tuesday afternoon and evening. The NWS is urging caution on the roadways as travel will become difficult or impossible due to heavy snow, high winds and whiteout conditions late Tuesday and afternoon and evening. Travelers are encouraged to complete their evening commute early Tuesday so they are not caught in the storm. If you must travel, the NWS says, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get stranded, stay with your vehicle.
