Commuters woke to another wintery sight Friday morning with wet, heavy snow blanketing the ground, just a few days away from April.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory in effect until 10 a.m. for additional snow accumulations of up to two inches for those along the Wasatch Mountains in Northern Utah.
Residents were warned of slippery road conditions, causing travel difficulties Friday morning with limited visibility and snow-covered roads. Drivers are urged to exercise caution.
Snowfall overnight caused power outages for thousands along the Wasatch Front from Lehi to Layton, bringing down tree limbs and power lines in many locations, according to Rocky Mountain Power.
"Because of the widespread and localized nature of the damage, customers who are out of power should be prepared to be without service for an extended period," Rocky Mountain Power stated in a press release. "Rocky Mountain Power expects to be working on repairs throughout the day. It is helpful for customers to report outages to Rocky Mountain Power’s toll-free outage line, 877-508-5088. Customers can also text OUT to 759677 to report an outage and receive updated information."
