Thanksgiving Week Storms Will Hinder Traffic, Delight Skiers

A series of winter storms are bearing down on Utah. Friday is expected to be windy and warm, and then precipitation will start to fall on Saturday. Northern Utah mountains could receive snow every day from Saturday through Thanksgiving Day.

Most of our ski resorts will be open by the holiday, and these storms will ensure great conditions.

People traveling need to use extra caution. Snow will fall at higher elevations statewide and could cause traffic problems. The storms look wet enough to drop heavy snow in spots. Crews will be plowing and sanding, and major highways should remain open. However, even Interstate highways could become slick and snowpacked in spots.

Monitor weather reports and road condition reports for the latest details. Plan extra time to travel and carry emergency equipment.

As the storms clear, temperatures will fall and Utah will see its first really cold temperatures of the season. Again, use caution if you are traveling or engaging in outdoor recreation.
