UTAH/WYOMING, Nov. 25, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook for the western two-thirds of Utah and southwest Wyoming.

Snow will be developing near the Idaho border late Sunday night, and two powerful storms are expected to come through Utah and southwest Wyoming during the week, including Thanksgiving Day.

The NWS advises anyone who is planning to travel during the week to keep in mind that the two storms forecast for the area may have a significant impact on road conditions.

Monday through Saturday

The NWS says a fast-moving but potent storm system is expected to bring significant snow accumulations to northern Utah, mainly along the Wasatch Mountains and east benches.

“Lake enhancement could result in locally higher snowfall totals in the Salt Lake and Tooele Valleys,” according to the posted outlook. “Travel impacts are expected Monday and Tuesday. Gusty northwest winds are anticipated across the West Desert and Castle Country.”

From Wednesday through Friday, the region will experience a large, slow-moving storm system that may produce accumulating snow as far south as St. George.
