Park City could see upwards of 14 inches of snow in this weekend's storm.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning from 11 a.m. Saturday through 5 p.m. Sunday for parts of the Wasatch Back.

Heavy snow is expected, with total accumulation of eight to 16 inches. The brunt of the storm is expected Saturday afternoon and evening, following a cold front.

Meteorologist Nate Larsen said wind will be a hazard in this wave of winter weather.

“Friday night to Saturday, we’re looking at wind gusts possibly up to 55 or 60 miles per hour, so really the wind heading into the weekend is the big culprit,” he said. “Temperatures are going to start to drop as colder air moves in.”

The forecast calls for sustained winds of 25 to 35 miles per hour.

Drivers are advised to prepare for winter conditions Saturday and Sunday. Patchy blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility.

Traction laws may be in place. Drivers are advised to leave extra travel time.

Stay tuned to KPCW for updates on this weekend’s storm.
