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.

Information about whether any injuries were reported was not immediately available.

Little Cottonwood Canyon will close at 10:30 a.m. due to avalanche control, Unified police said.

Eastbound I-80 at Parleys Canyon is also closed until crews can clear the roadway, Utah Highway Patrol troopers report.

In Daggett County, U.S. Highway 191 is closed near the Utah-Wyoming border.

The Unified Police Department Canyon Patrol is also asking drivers to avoid canyons Monday morning due to extreme weather conditions.

For more on winter road conditions, visit UDOT’s website or dial 511.
