OGDEN -- If you spent Christmas Eve dreaming of a White Christmas, your dreams have come true.
The National Weather Service said Monday afternoon that today will be clear and sunny, but whatever snow fell on Monday would be sticking around. The snow will even get a retread Wednesday when another disturbance moves through, dumping another inch or two of snow in the valleys and up to 24 inches in the mountains.
Monday's storm moved out of the West and across the Wasatch Front, stretching from the Idaho border to Nephi.
Chris Young, meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in Salt Lake City, said today's high will be around 30, "so the snow isn't going to go anywhere -- it will keep our Christmas white, and tomorrow (Tuesday) night it will be chilly, upper teens, always a chance of snow showers."
Chances of snow Wednesday and Thursday are 80 percent both days, he said.
Slick roads and icy conditions were partly to blame for a few accidents along Interstate 15 and around a few shopping areas that slowed down the Monday morning commute.
Weber County area dispatchers said there were several accidents on Interstate 15 and one accident on Riverdale Road. Several people were taken to local hospitals by ambulance for medical treatment, but none with life-threatening injuries.
Davis County Sheriff's dispatchers said the number of slide-offs and accidents began to pick up shortly after 2:30 p.m. on Monday. They had no numbers, but said the calls were higher than normal for Monday. There were no serious injuries reported.
Weber County dispatchers said they were kept busy most of Monday with slide-offs and accidents. There were no serious injuries reported.
The Utah Department of Transportation has had 500 plows on Utah roads since the storm started Monday and will continue plowing roads until the snow is gone, said Adan Carrillo, the department's spokesman.
Weber and Davis counties did not have as much snow as the Salt Lake area, Carrillo said, but there were plenty of slushy, slippery areas that needed attention.
