Snow continues through tonight across northern Utah (heavy at times), before tapering towards 9 A.M. Friday. Snow changes to rain across valley routes near and south of Salt Lake after 7 P.M. At least minor to moderate road snow/slush accumulations expected along the Wasatch Front from Utah Valley northward, with the notable exception being Salt Lake/Tooele Valleys, where under an inch of road snow is anticipated through the day.
