SALT LAKE CITY — Wind gusts across Northern Utah are kicking up a lot of dust and creating hazy conditions.

Dusty conditions will likely continue along portions of the Wasatch Front through the evening, according to a tweet from the National Weather Service.

The winds are also dragging a strong sulfur smell from the Great Salt Lake, according dispatchers in Salt Lake City.

Twitter user @Steve_Rogo posted a picture loop of the weather moving in over the Bountiful Bench.

FOX 13’s Brett Benson said the loop shows a gust front moving in, which carried everything with it. The gust has passed, but scattered thunderstorms continue.

The smell will continue to inundate Salt Lake City while the winds come out of the north.
