Forecast Period: 4 AM Friday through 6 PM Friday 

Text Updated: 4 AM 3/22/2019

A storm system will continue to impact a large portion of the state early Friday morning, including portions of I-15 in southern Utah. Main concerns for the Wasatch Back, including Parleys summit to the WY border, US-40 and the Park City area, will be before 9 AM. By late morning, road snow will likely only be over the higher summit routes throughout the state. Snow tapers off across southern Utah Friday evening but looks to continue early in the night for central/northern Utah, with road snow expected Friday evening over summit routes again after dusk. All lower valley routes will remain wet through Friday/Friday night.

Motorists are advised to use caution and TravelWise. Motorists heading up canyon and mountain routes should be prepared for chain restrictions at any time during snow events.
