SALT LAKE CITY — A winter storm is continuing to dump several inches of snow on roads all over the Wasatch Front, causing dangerous conditions for drivers on Thanksgiving Day.

A Utah Highway Patrol spokesman said snow is affecting roads all over northern Utah, and the worst road conditions are in Box Elder and Cache counties. There is more snow than plows can handle in some areas.

"Box Elder County is currently inundated with snow and the roads are exceptionally treacherous. Please allow road crews and law enforcement a few hours to make things safe before heading out for the day," a tweet from UHP said.

The National Weather Service's winter storm warnings remain in effect for most of the state.
