Next snowstorm brings up to a foot for the mountains through Friday

Another winter storm has arrived in the Wasatch Back and is expected to affect driving conditions into Friday.

The National Weather Service said the storm should start to taper off Friday.

Estimates from 6 to 12 inches of snow are expected in the northern mountains with higher amounts of up to 18 inches in the central Wasatch.

The Utah Department of Transportation said heavy snow will develop from west to east, affecting mountain routes across the state.

The storm may impact driving conditions Thursday evening into Friday morning, according to UDOT, and traction restrictions are a possibility.
