SALT LAKE CITY — Winter weather has made another appearance across northern Utah, and it's expected to stick around.
Snowfall throughout the day Friday snarled traffic on the Wasatch Front. Transportation managers logged 224 crashes, including slideoffs and minor collisions, by early evening in Salt Lake County alone.1 comment on this story
"Conditions are extremely slick," said Utah Department of Transportation spokesman John Gleason. Utah County had three dozen crashes by early afternoon, while Davis and Weber counties together counted 22.
Skies were expected to stay clear Saturday morning, then bring more snowfall across northern and central Utah in the afternoon, said KSL-TV meteorologist Kevin Eubank. Another round of snow is expected early next week.
At Sugarhouse Park on Friday, some sought to make the best of Utah's late start to winter.
Among the group was Joe Oscanoa and Teresa Hernandez, who went sledding for the first time in the park.
