High Wind Warning Lifted For Northwestern Utah; Other Advisories Still In Place
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Winter advisories and storm warnings remained in effect Wednesday, with more snow expected in higher elevations. Earlier high wind warnings have been downsized.
Utah’s mountains could get an additional 6 – 14 inches of snow by the time the storm is over, and some lower-elevation areas could see an additional 1 – 4 inches. Portions of the northwestern Utah were being advised of possible strong winds, but meteorologist Grant Weyman said those winds should be dying down.
The winter storm warming, though, is continuing for mountainous areas.
While this storm hasn’t been as intense as the last to hit the state, it’s still causing issues on the roadways.
According to the Utah Highway Patrol, there have been more than 90 crashes and slide-offs statewide since the storm began Tuesday.
The winter storm warning and winter advisory both end Thursday at 10 a.m.
