A pedestrian crosses the TRAX line on the University of Utah campus as a snowstorm blows through Salt Lake City on Wednesday, March 13, 2019.

The snow and wind made the morning commute treacherous, with the Utah Highway Patrol reporting as of 4 p.m. troopers had investigated 135 crashes, 83 of which occurred before 10 a.m. Alpine, Jordan, Granite and Murray school districts said they would be lenient with tardies and absences as most buses were running late due to snarled traffic. According to KSL's Kevin Eubank, high temperatures along the Wasatch Front will remain below normal for the rest of the week, but over the weekend skies will be sunny and highs will climb into the 50s. Southern Utah will see sunny skies and highs in mid- to upper 60s.
