(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) Trudi Madison shovels her sidewalks in South Ogden, November 2, 2022. Two more snowstorms are expected in Utah over the next few days.

After a breather on Wednesday, another winter storm is set to sweep across Utah late Thursday. And yet another storm is expected to hit late Saturday and last into next week, according to the National Weather Service.

Salt Lake City will see sunny skies and highs in the mid-40s on Wednesday, and Thursday will be even warmer — in the upper 40s. However, this will be the warm before the storm; a strong wind warning in effect from Thursday noon to Friday 1am.

Southerly winds of 25-35 mph are expected with gusts of up to 55 mph possible. The weather service advised that driving snow could impair visibility, and power outages are possible.

Expect rain turning to snow before 2am on Friday – which can be heavy at times. There is a 90% chance of snow, with accumulations of less than an inch in the Salt Lake City area.

Larger accumulations are expected at higher elevations. According to the Utah Avalanche Center, there is “significant” avalanche danger in the mountains near Salt Lake City, Provo, Ogden and Logan, and in the Uintas.

There is an 80% chance the snow will last through Friday morning’s commute, with 1-2 inches making travel difficult. The wind will continue to blow – 17-23mph, with gusts up to 36mph.

Daily highs in the mid 30’s are expected on Friday and hit the low 40’s on Saturday and Sunday, with overnight lows near 20’s on Friday, near 30’s on Saturday and mid 20’s on Sunday.

Normal high temperatures for this time of year are in the low to mid 40’s; normal lows are in the upper 20s.

Another storm is expected late Saturday with a low chance of rain turning to snow. There is a possibility that it will rain and snow even more on Sunday and snow even more on Monday.

Much more pleasant is the forecast for southern Utah. Temperatures in the low to mid 50s are expected in St George for the weekend. The chance of rain is 30% on Thursday evening and 50% on Friday morning. More winter storms moved to Salt Lake City
