OGDEN -- Northern Utah was buffeted by high winds and brief heavy rains Monday morning.
The winds are related to showers and thunderstorms moving through Northern Utah, said Mike Conger, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City.
Winds of about 50 mph were reported in Davis County between Bountiful and Centerville around 9 a.m.
Snowbasin Ski Resort and Ogden Peak had gusts of 70 to 75 mph, Conger said, and Sundance Ski Resort near Provo had gusts of 84 mph.
Traffic was snarled after high winds toppled a semitrailer on southbound Interstate 15 in Utah County.
Utah Highway Patrol Cpl. Todd Johnson said medical crews were called to the scene after the accident around 7:55 a.m. Monday, but it was unclear whether the driver was taken to the hospital.
Some lanes were blocked near the crash scene at Mile Marker 285.
The winds coincided with a Pacific storm system that moved from Southern California on Sunday and reached Northern Utah early Monday morning, said Steve Rogowski, meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
The winds decreased late Monday afternoon, but scattered showers throughout Northern Utah were reported.
It's expected to be partly cloudy today, with highs in the low 60s throughout the northern half of the state.
