Areas of Dense Fog and Patchy Ice for Areas of Utah through Thursday Morning


Updated: February 11, 2016 at 6:45 A.M.

Forecast Period: 1:00 A.M. through 11:00 A.M. Thursday

                                                      

Areas of dense fog and patchy ice will impact portions of Utah through 11 A.M. Thursday.  Visibility could fall below ¼ mile in some areas.  Light flurries could develop in areas of dense fog as well.  Dense fog and light flurries will cause areas of slick roads and patchy ice.  Motorists are advised to travel with extreme caution.  Areas of dense fog and patchy ice will impact portions of the following areas:

 

- I-15, ID border to Beaver

- I-80, Wendover through Salt Lake City

- I-84, ID border to Tremonton

- US-6, Nevada Border to Spanish Fork

- US-89, ID border to Bountiful

- Cache Valley

- Tooele Valley

- Ogden

- Utah Valley

- Salt Lake Valley, patchy ice concerns mainly over bridges and overpasses

 

*** Pinpointing exactly when and where inversion snow flurries develop (creating patchy road ice) can be very tricky for forecasters.  Areas near open water, industrial areas, the Cache Valley, and Uinta Basin tend to see a greater frequency of these events .***

 

**Currently at 6:45 A.M. the areas of dense freezing fog seem to be focused around the Cache Valley, Utah Valley, I-84 west of Tremonton, Point of the Mountain, and Central and Southern West Desert.**
