Windy Conditions Affecting Commutes, Causing Power Outages
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Drivers in the northern Wasatch Front on Thursday are dealing with fierce, early-morning canyon winds.
KSL TV meteorologist Grant Weyman said gusts between 48 – 66 miles per hour have been reported, affecting Box Elder, Weber and Davis counties.
Because of the winds, restrictions were put into place on several highways, with high-profile vehicles prohibited on I-15 between Brigham City and Tremonton.
Those restrictions are expected to be lifted at 9 a.m.
Weyman said the wind is expected to die down at around 10 a.m.
Wind is also impacting power outages in Weber County.
Update 6:27 am: Due to weather conditions and multiple reports of lines down, the estimated time of restoration has been extended to 1:30 pm. We appreciate your continued patience as we work to safely restore your service as quickly as possible.
