Winter Storm Conditions Affect Morning Commute

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The snow has started to stick on the roads, so officials at UDOT are asking morning commuters to drive safely and use extra caution.

Morning commuters can expect to see icy conditions out on the roads. In some areas, visibility is quite low. Commuters can also expect to feel some strong winds blowing the Wasatch Front, according to KSL Meteorologist Grant Weyman.

UDOT has already seen some traffic accidents and slide-offs throughout northern Utah.

Weyman said we should expect to see the snow clear up along the Wasatch Front between 10 and 11 a.m. However, the snow will continue to fall up in the mountains.

Here’s a look at how many inches we can expect to see this morning:

Temperatures are on the colder side this morning, but we can expect to see some sunshine later on this afternoon.

 

UDOT snowplows have been positioned in several areas to help clear up the roads.

Officials with UDOT issued the traction law just before 5 a.m. for Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons.

For most Utahns along the Wasatch Front, the snow began to fall around 5:15 a.m. and really started to stick about 30 minutes later.

 

 

For those near Park City, the snow started to stick much earlier.
