Because of the cold temperatures, the chances of black ice and other icy conditions on Utah roadways are expected to increase Saturday. Drivers are warned to be careful when traveling over bridges and overpasses as ice forms more quickly when cold air hits above and below those structures.

While the majority of the snowfall has let up, some areas such as Davis and Salt Lake counties and will continue to see lingering snow showers into Friday afternoon before drying out in the evening.

Conditions will warm up over the weekend before another storm system is forecast for northern Utah in the middle of the week.
