SALT LAKE CITY — The Wasatch Front can expect more snow into early Monday afternoon after a wintry storm whitened the valley floor and dropped nearly 2 feet of snow at a ski resort on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

Salt Lake and Tooele valleys and the northern Wasatch Front south of Ogden could see accumulations of snow up to 4 inches, the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City said.

“Periods of heavy snow will cause roadways to temporarily become snow covered, especially overpasses and all surfaces during the nighttime hours. Plan on slippery road conditions,” the weather service said Sunday.

Snowfall is expected to increase “just in time for the morning commute,” before tapering off early Monday afternoon, officials said.

Officials at Solitude Mountain Resort in Big Cottonwood Canyon reported 20 inches of snow from the storm late Sunday afternoon.

Utah troopers reminded drivers Sunday ahead of the expected snow to increase following distance, check their equipment before leaving, wear their seat belts, and “drive at your ability.” Those who get into fender-benders should move off the freeway, the Utah Highway Patrol said.
