SALT LAKE CITY (KUTV) -- The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of northern Utah for Monday morning.
The warning is for heavy snow between four to eight inches in the valley and higher snow totals on the benches and near Tooele.
The warning was issued Sunday at 3:15 p.m. for areas between Cache Valley and Nephi.
The National Weather Service's weather alert specifically includes Cache Valley, the Northern Wasatch Front, Salt Lake and Tooele Valleys, and the Southern Wasatch Front.
The warning is in effect from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday.
Below is a statement from the 2News weather team about Monday morning's storm.
"A significant winter storm will impact much of the state during the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. Precipitation may briefly start as rain tonight, but will quickly change to snow for the Monday morning commute. 4-8" of snow looks likely along the I-15 corridor from Salt Lake City to Cedar City. The northern Wasatch Front and Cache Valley will see lesser amounts--generally 1-4". The mountains will see another 1-2 feet of snow. Due to the fact that the heaviest snow will fall during the morning commute and Monday is the end of a holiday weekend when many people will be traveling, the 2News Weather Team felt a Weather Warn Day should be issued. The 2News Weather Team will issue Weather Warn Days when the weather will significantly impact your life."
