Road Weather Highlights

Areas of Heavy Mtn. Road Snow & Valley Road Slush


Forecast Period: Ongoing through Noon Sunday

Text Updated: Saturday 12/10/2016 at 2:30 P.M.

Mountain snow and valley rain will continue to expand across northern Utah through the remainder of Saturday afternoon. The threat for heavier snowfall and road snow is expected to increase across higher mountain summits into the evening hours, with rain changing to snow or a rain/snow mix and road slush/snow developing down into mountain valleys and through the canyons. The threat for mountain road snow will spread across Central Utah Mountains this evening and continue through early Saturday night. Precipitation will then decrease from north to south later Saturday night into Sunday morning, ending as snow for all routes. Northern Utah valleys, bench routes, and portions of Central Utah, will all be susceptible to minor road slush and icy roads Saturday night into Sunday morning. Motorists are advised to use caution and TravelWise. The following routes will experience weather-related travel concerns during the forecast period:

  • I-15, ID border to Brigham City; Payson to Nephi; Scipio Summit; Cove Fort (I-70 Jct.)
  • I-80, Parleys Canyon to WY border
  • I-84, ID border to Tremonton; Uintah Jct. (US-89) to Echo
