A winter storm warning is in effect for parts of Utah, as a significant winter storm is expected to bring heavy snow and strong winds to the region this weekend.

What to expect from the storm?

According to the National Weather Service, the storm will move into Utah from the Pacific Northwest on Friday, bringing valley rain and mountain snow. The rain will change to snow in the valleys by Friday evening, and the snow will continue overnight and into Saturday. The snow will be heavy at times, with rates of up to one inch per hour possible. The storm will also produce gusty winds of up to 50 mph in the mountains, creating blowing and drifting snow and reducing visibility.

The storm will impact most of northern and central Utah, as well as parts of eastern Utah. The Wasatch Mountains and Wasatch Back will receive the most snow, with 20 to 30 inches expected by early Monday. The Wasatch Back includes areas such as Heber City, Huntsville, Mantua, and Park City. The valleys of northern Utah will generally see 6 to 12 inches of snow, while the central and southern valleys will get 4 to 10 inches. The southern mountains will receive 1 to 2 feet of snow.

The storm will also improve the air quality in the region, as it will break up an inversion event that has been trapping pollutants near the surface.

What does the Lake 88 Weather Guy say?

The Lake 88 Weather Guy, who has gained a loyal following on social media for his humorous and informative weather videos, posted a new update on Friday morning, warning his viewers about the storm and giving them some advice on how to prepare and cope.

“Hey, folks, it’s the Lake 88 Weather Guy here, and I’m back to tell you about the big storm that’s coming our way. This is going to be a doozy, folks, so buckle up and get ready for some serious snow action,” he said in the video.

He then proceeded to show a map of the winter storm warning and winter weather advisory areas and explain the difference between them.

“A winter storm warning means that a significant winter storm is happening or about to happen, and you should expect travel difficulties, power outages, and possible damage to your property. A winter weather advisory means that a winter storm is expected to cause minor inconveniences but nothing too serious. Either way, you should be prepared and stay safe,” he said.

He then gave some tips on how to get ready for the storm, such as stocking up on food, water, batteries, and flashlights; checking the tire pressure and gas level of your car; and clearing your sidewalks and driveways of snow.

He also advised his viewers to stay indoors as much as possible and avoid driving unless necessary.

“If you have to go out, make sure you dress warmly, wear layers, and cover your head, hands, and feet. And don’t forget your mask, because we’re still in a pandemic, folks. And if you’re driving, slow down, leave plenty of space between you and other vehicles, and watch out for black ice and snow plows,” he said.

He also suggested some fun activities to do at home, such as watching movies, playing games, reading books, and baking cookies.

“And if you’re feeling adventurous, you can always go outside and build a snowman, make snow angels, or have a snowball fight. Just remember to have fun and enjoy the beauty of nature,” he said.

He ended the video by wishing his viewers a happy and safe weekend and promising to keep them updated on the storm.

“Stay tuned for more weather updates from the Lake 88 Weather Guy, and remember, don’t let the weather get you down. It’s all part of living in this beautiful state of Utah. Until next time, this is the Lake 88 Weather Guy, signing off.”
