SALT LAKE CITY — Severe weather is on its way to the Wasatch Front Thursday, with some warnings already in effect across the state.

Most recently, a flash flood warning was issued for Elk Ridge and Woodland Hills in Utah County.

Late last month, flash floods and mudslides closed U.S. 89 in the area.

The National Weather Service also issued severe thunderstorm warnings for parts of Juab, Sanpete, Tooele and Utah counties, which lasted through 6:45 p.m.

Parts of I-15, from Mona south towards Scipio, and U.S.-89 from Fairview through Ephraim were included in one warning while Tooele, Eagle Mountain and Saratoga Springs were included in another.

The NWS said winds could gust up to 60 mph and penny-sized hail is possible with these storms.
