NORTHERN UTAH – A storm system is hitting the Wasatch Front Wednesday night, which will  mean rain showers, lightning, high winds and even hail in various areas of northern Utah.

FOX 13 News chief meteorologist Brett Benson said the storm system is moving in from the southeast and will effect much of the Wasatch Front, including the Tooele area, Utah County and Salt Lake valley.

The storm also delayed the start of the Real Salt Lake match-up, with the team tweeting at about 7:40 that the rain would create a delay of at least 30 minutes. Photos from the stadium show an empty field as the jumbo-tron displayed a warning message urging people to stay in covered areas.

Areas could experience rain, lightning, hail and high winds with gusts of up to 40 mph. A FOX 13 News viewer sent in several photos showing hail in Sandy.
