Except for the ski resorts, southern Utah received the most snow from Monday's storm, which caused a traffic fatality in Magna and blanketed the area after the rescue of two balloonists in Garfield County.
Lori Neathery, 17, 3035 S. 50th West, a Cyprus High School student, died of injuries received when her car slid out of control on a snowy road and collided head-on with a Granite School District bus on 2820 South near 7575 West.The teenager was en route to school when the accident occurred about 7:30 a.m.
Ivan L. Labrum, 40, 3393 S. Patrick Drive, Magna, the driver of the empty school bus, was uninjured.
Meanwhile, Scott Hendricks, 30, and Ron Martin, 46, both of Paris, Calif., were in serious condition Tuesday after their long-range hot-air balloon, which took off Sunday from a Disneyland parking lot, crashed Monday in the rugged Mount Dutton area near Circleville in Garfield County.
Hendricks was being treated for back and leg injuries at LDS Hospital. Martin, a patient at Garfield Memorial Hospital in Panguitch, has a compression fracture of the spine and a dislocated left shoulder, a nursing supervisor said.
William J. Alder, meteorologist in charge of the Salt Lake office of the National Weather Service, said Cedar City received 7-9 inches, and Fillmore, 8 inches of snow from the storm. Other amounts: Cache Valley, 4-6 inches; Kearns, 5; Olympus Cove, 6; Richfield, 3. Most ski resorts received about a foot of new snow. Other areas along the Wasatch Front received 2-5 inches.
Alder said 1.41 inches of water came from the 2.4 inches of snow that fell at the Salt Lake airport. By early Tuesday, total precipitation for November at the airport is 1.41 inches. The normal amount for November is 1.22 inches.
A lighter storm is forecast for Tuesday afternoon or evening, while still another storm Thursday and Friday could drop another 1 to 11/2 feet of snow in the northern mountains, Alder said.
