    Northern Utah bracing for more snow, avalanche danger


    SALT LAKE CITY –– A winter-like storm brought heavy snowfall and hurricane-force winds to parts of northern Utah Thursday morning, and caused quite a ruckus for the morning and afternoon commutes.


    According to the Utah Highway Patrol, there were 88 crashes reported across Salt Lake and Utah Counties, including 13 accidents with minor injuries.


    Some mountain locations received up to 3 feet of snow, while portions of the valleys across the Wasatch Front also received significant snowfall.  Snowfall totals are listed on, including 10 inches in Tooele, 10 inches at Alta, and 8.9 inches along the Bountiful Bench.


    According to The National Weather Service office in Salt Lake City, one mountain peak in Park City clocked windspeed of 85 mph at 6 a.m. Friday, and Signal Peak recorded 79 mph winds.


    The Great Salt Lake is notorious for producing what is known as "lake effect snow", and forecasters are calling for more snow to fall across the area through Sunday.
