According to ABC4 Pinpoint Weather, Salt Lake County could also be affected by the latest forecast.

What is a snow storm and what makes it different from other types of winter storms?

ABC4 Chief Meteorologist Alana Brophy explained that the event was "an intense, short-lived burst in heavy snowfall that leads a rapid reduction in visibilities and often is accompanied by gusty wind."

The reason for this is that the squall will likely impact roads just as people are leaving work to go home for their evening commute. This could lead to dangerous consequences for drivers in Utah.

Brophy stated that it is a good idea to wait out a storm like this, as it can be dangerous for roads. A snow squall can also bring about rapid changes in visibility and slick roads.

According to the NWS, a snow squall is distinguished from other snowstorms because it lasts for a shorter time, usually between 30-60 minutes. However, they are still intense.
