Snowfall has started across the mountains, and we have the photos to prove it.

Guess what, Utah? Snow has started falling across the mountains, and it’s expected to hit the lower valley Friday evening.

According to KSL weather, rain that poured on the valley this morning will likely change to snow in the afternoon.

But the mountains will see 10 to 18 inches, according to KSL.

The Utah Department of Transportation released a few tweets, encouraging people to slow down.

UDOT also said chains are required in Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons.

Other accounts shared photos from the valley’s first real batch of snow.

This isn't Utah's first snowfall of the year. Back in September, wet weather rained down on the Beehive State, leaving snow in multiple locations. The National Weather Service called it the "first (light) snow of the year," according to the Deseret News.

But Utah has yet to see any major snowstorms, unlike other parts of the Southwest. Montana, for example, experienced a record-breaking blizzard at the beginning of October.
