Snow Storm Expected To Cause Problems During Morning Commute

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A KSL Weather Alert has been issued due to a fast-moving storm moving into the state, bringing heavy snow to the morning commute.

Meteorologist Kevin Eubank said the snow will pass through by midday, but there may be some problems during the morning hours when people are taking kids to school and getting out the door for work.

The snow has been forecast to begin around 3 or 4 a.m. Friday, with one to three inches falling in the valley floors along the Wasatch Mountains.

Crews with the Utah Department of Transportation planned to have plows on the roads early, but drivers should still give themselves extra time to get through the morning commute.

Some schools and government agencies have announced later start times.

Officials with the Alpine School District have announced a 2-hour delay advisory, meaning they’ll start on time, unless the snow warrants a delay.

The Park City School District issued notices that they’ll alert parents to any closures by 6 a.m. depending on the weather.

The Canyons School District already had Friday scheduled off.

Many other schools sent out advisories that classes will start as normal, but if snow makes driving dangerous, parents can keep kids home until it is safe to go out.

Officials said the key for parents is to check their school’s website or social media first thing in the morning.

Utah Governor Gary Herbert issued an order to delay the opening of state offices by two hours.
