A winter storm has arrived in Utah. Here's what it looks like so far

Your morning commute and afternoon ride home may be a little snowy.

That’s because Utah’s found itself under a winter storm warning, according to the Associated Press. The National Weather Service announced over the weekend that the valley could accrue between 18 to 30 inches, with snowfall starting on Monday morning and lasting through the night.

KSL reported Monday morning that those in the valley can expect between 3 to 6 inches of snow.

Drivers are currently experiencing snow on their morning commutes. The Utah Department of Transportation advised drivers to leave 10 to 15 minutes early so they can reach their destination on time.

KSL meteorologist Dan Guthrie said on Facebook Live over the weekend that the bulk of the storm will last from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., affecting much of the Salt Lake valley. He said plow trucks will be out to clear the roads, though, giving a silver lining to those who are driving later in the day.

Areas in the mountains like Alta, Brighton and Park City have already seen double digits worth of snowfall this morning.

On Sunday, I-15 was shut down close to Scipio. Weather caused hours worth of stalled traffic, according to the Utah Highway Patrol.

UDOT suggested checking its weather app as well as the Waze traveling app to stay head of the storm.

Snow also began to affect most parts of the valley. Social media users tweeted out what that they saw early Monday.
