SALT LAKE CITY — A big winter storm blasted through northern Utah Thursday morning, creating hazardous driving conditions and forcing some school closures.
Mountain Green Elementary and Morgan Elementary Schools were closed because of snow. Heavy snow also forced the closure of Ogden Canyon just before 8 a.m. due to multiple crashes, according to the Weber County Sheriff's Office. It reopened about an hour later. Law enforcers also shut down I-84 from the mouth of Weber Canyon to Morgan due to heavy snow.
About 6:30 a.m., a car collided with a TRAX train at 300 West and South Temple. A woman was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries.
KSL meteorologist Grant Weyman forecasted up to 3 inches of snow could fall on the Salt Lake Valley floor Thursday. The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for the Wasatch and western Uinta mountains until 4 p.m. Hazardous weather conditions were also predicted for much of the state, on and off through Thursday night.
