SALT LAKE CITY, Utah — A winter storm is making its way through Utah Monday.
Some areas along the Wasatch Front are expected to get 4-8 inches of snow while the mountains could get 15-25 inches.
A winter storm warning is in effect until 9 a.m. Tuesday.
Several crashes have been reported throughout the state, including a semitruck rollover on I-84 near Mountain Green, according to a Facebook post from Morgan County Fire & EMS. Westbound lanes on I-84 are closed from Mountain Green exit 92 to exit 96.
We are closing EB I-80 at Parley’s Canyon until the snow can be better cleared. WB I-84 is still closed for a Semi-Rollover at the rest area in Weber Canyon (pic attached). We’ll advise when each roadway re-opens. pic.twitter.com/JPESFttQbo
