Road Weather Highlights

Periods of Road Snow



Forecast Period: 11 P.M. Sunday through 11 P.M. Monday

Text Updated: Sunday 2/26/2017 at 1:30 P.M.

 

A winter storm system is expected to impact travel across much of Utah Sunday night through Monday. Snow showers will first develop across far Northern Utah and along the mountains Sunday night, increasing in coverage early Monday morning as the front strengthens and shifts southward across the Wasatch Front/Mountains. The Monday morning commute is expected to be impacted across the Wasatch Front with road snow/slush, causing very slick driving conditions. Steadier snow will then taper to snow showers Monday afternoon along and north of Salt Lake City. The main concern for the Monday evening commute will be brief slush-ups under any lingering snow showers in the valleys and areas of light road snow across mountain routes.

The cold front may slow down a bit across Central Utah Monday afternoon, targeting the Western Uinta Mountains, down into Heber City, and across Utah/Eastern Juab Counties. Road snow is expected to be fairly persistent in these areas through Monday afternoon. By Monday evening, the front will begin to edge into Southern Utah, as snow diminishes across Central Utah. Road snow concerns will then increase along the I-70 corridor, especially west of Fremont Junction (SR-10), and the I-15 corridor between Scipio and Cedar City. The main focus for road snow across Eastern Utah will be over the Uinta Mountains, but periods of light road slush/snow will be possible for the Eastern Uinta Basin and areas near Monticello throughout Monday. Motorists are advised to travel with caution, especially during the Monday morning commute, and TravelWise. The following major routes are expected to have weather-related travel concerns during the forecast period:

  • I-15, ID border through Black Ridge (mp 42)
  • I-80, Entire Route
  • I-70, Cove Fort (I-15 Jct.) to Fremont Jct. (SR-10); San Rafael Swell
  • I-84, Entire Route
  • I-215, Entire Route
  • US-89, ID border through Kanab
  • US-40, Entire Route
  • US-50, Delta to Salina
  • US-91, Entire Route
  • US-6, NV border through Woodside
  • US-191, between WY border & Vernal; Duchesne to Helper; La Sal Jct. (SR-46) to Blanding
