SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Highway Patrol troopers responded to more than 100 crashes as winter weather affected northern Utah roadways Thursday morning.
UHP received 254 calls for service by 9:30 a.m., including 105 crashes and 47 stranded drivers in Salt Lake and Utah counties.
"Please slow down and get to your destination safely," a tweet from UHP said.
Cold overnight temperatures and a weak storm system left some light road snow along the Wasatch Front and in the adjacent mountain areas.
The roads in Big and Little Cottonwood canyons are slick with patches of ice in some areas, and the two roadways could receive one to two inches of snow in the upper regions.
Watch FOX 13 for updates.
Road Weather Alert: Light snow across the Wasatch Front is expected to continue this morning. Light road snow and very slick driving conditions are possible. Please use caution while driving.
