After spring-like conditions, storm reminds everyone it’s still winter

After record high temperatures three days in a row throughout Northern Utah, a significant winter storm literally roared through the region Wednesday evening. Seven inches of snow were reported at KVNU 610 AM/102.1 FM, an official reporting station for the National Weather Service.Before the snow started the region had been experiencing record warm temperatures. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday all experienced temperatures in the mid and upper-50s. Before the storm front hit, high winds blew through the area, causing some problems, particularly in Tooele County where some high profile vehicles were blown off Interstate 80.The combination of wind and heavy snow caused blizzard-like conditions in several areas of the state, prompting the closure of I-84 from the I-15 split in Box Elder County to the Idaho border until snowplows could make a significant dent in the accumulating snow. Intermittent power outages were also reported from Tooele County to Rexburg, Idaho.It will be awhile before the spring-like weather returns as more snow storms are projected to roll through the area over the next several days.
