Quick, Powerful Storm Brings Winter Back To Northern Utah
WEBER COUNTY, Utah — A fast-moving winter storm pushed through northern Utah Friday evening, quickly coating roads with snow.
Sunny skies and mild temperatures came to an abrupt end around 4 p.m. in Davis and Weber counties when winds picked up and temperatures plummeted nearly 20 degrees in a matter of a half-hour.
By 8:30 p.m., Logan and Hill Air Force Base had reported 3 inches of snow, according to data from the National Weather Service.
Most valley locations along the Wasatch Front were forecasted to receive between 1 and 3 inches of snow by midnight.
Mountain locations were expected to get 6 to 12 inches.
“All of a sudden I looked outside and it was snow!” Natalie Scadden said, as she scraped off her car in a parking lot in Riverdale. “It was nice outside and then it went to this. It’s crazy! It’s a lot of snow!”
Rachel Thunell said she had to drive from Logan in the mess.
“The roads are just insane,” Thunell said. “We came down just for a quick trip. We had to pick up my car from a dealership, and now we have to head back, so we’ve got to be safe.”
Neither woman could believe how quickly the weather had changed.
“It’s Utah,” Scadden shrugged. “One hour it’s sunny, the next hour it’s a blizzard.”
