Issued: February 13, 2016 at 1:00 A.M.
Forecast Period: 1:00 A.M. through 11:00 A.M. Saturday
Areas of dense fog and patchy ice will impact portions of Utah, overnight through 11 A.M. Saturday. Visibility could fall below ¼ mile in some areas. Light flurries could develop in areas of dense fog as well, especially near industrial plants and Lakes. Dense fog and light flurries will cause areas of slick roads and patchy ice. Motorists are advised to travel with extreme caution through areas of fog. Areas of dense fog and patchy ice will impact portions of the following areas:
- I-15, ID border to I-70 Jct
- I-80, Tooele to the mouth of Parleys
- I-84, ID border to Tremonton
- US-6, Nevada Border to Spanish Fork
- US-89, ID border to Bountiful
- Cache Valley
- Tooele Valley
- Utah Valley
- Salt Lake Valley. Fog concerns will be focused mainly over the benches, patchy ice concerns mainly over bridges and overpasses.
*** Pinpointing exactly when and where inversion snow flurries develop (creating patchy road ice) can be very tricky for forecasters. Areas near open water, industrial areas, the Cache Valley, and Uinta Basin tend to see a greater frequency of these events .***
**Currently at 1:00 A.M. the areas of dense freezing fog seem to be focused around Cache Valley, Utah Valley, Ogden, and the Central and Southern West Desert.**
