SALT LAKE CITY — It wasn't a white Christmas, but it certainly was a white day-after-Christmas as a storm brought early morning snow Sunday to northern Utah and parts of the southern area of the state.
White-out conditions could be seen on traffic cameras in the Salt Lake area, making for hazardous driving on highways.
At 8:45 a.m., all inbound flights to Salt Lake City International Airport were being held at their origin until 9:15 a.m.
The snow continued into the late morning as bands moved through Utah before tapering off in the valleys and leaving behind windy conditions in northwest Utah.
Beginning Saturday night, hazardous driving conditions were forecast for all Utah mountain areas. The National Weather Service said travel restrictions were possible in the mountains and higher passes, including Parleys and Sardine summits. The greatest impacts on valleys were in Cache Valley and the Wasatch Back region.
Drivers should expect slushy roads after the storm passes.
More snow is expected starting Monday afternoon. Click here to watch the latest forecast.
