Thankfully, the original forecast for a winter storm impacting western Duchesne County was an overestimate. National Weather Service forecasted that the storm could bring up to 20 inches of snow to western Duchesne County
between Wednesday and Saturday morning
. The Duchesne County Sheriff’s Office rightfully urged citizens to prepare for the storm by having enough food, water, and other necessary supplies on hand in the event of being snowed in. It was also shared that the storm could narrow the roads to the point of being impassible. When the weather service forecast was updated, it was shown to expect much less snow than originally predicted. “Despite this fact,” shared the Sheriff’s Office, “Duchesne County Road Supervisor Ben Henderson said even 6 inches of new snow in these areas at this time will have an adverse impact on county roads. Some roads may become impassable for a few days until crews can reach them.” Residents in the Fruitland, Tabiona, Hanna, and Upper Country area are still advised to prepare for the storm and help neighbors who may not be able to prepare for themselves.
