The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook and a snow advisory for northern and central Utah.

A snow advisory has been issued for the mountains in northern Utah and in southwestern Wyoming. Rain will mix with snow this morning and this afternoon. Heavy snow is predicted tonight in elevations above 7,000 feet. As much as four inches of snow is predicted by Thursday morning.

"A snow advisory means that periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties," the NWS said in a statement today. "Be prepared for snow-covered roads and limited visibilities ... and use caution while driving."
