Weather advisory issued for strong winds Friday; hard freezing conditions in northern Utah – fr


SALT LAKE CITY – A weather advisory was issued for south-central Salt Lake and northwestern Utah counties on Friday due to wind gusts of up to 50 mph, according to the National Weather Service.
The weather service estimated that the advisory would be in effect until 7:30 p.m. At that time, the service said the winds were starting to ease around Salt Lake Valley, but remained high over Utah Valley.

At 8:45 p.m., winds across Utah continued to diminish as light precipitation began in parts. Precipitation is expected throughout the night, the National Weather Service said in a tweet.

In its Hazardous Weather Outlook, the National Weather Service also said cooler temperatures throughout the weekend could lead to hard freezing conditions in Cache Valley, Wasatch Back and far north Utah, near Snowville. He warned that frost is possible in the northern Wasatch front near Ogden, as well as in normally cooler places in west-central Utah.

Wind gusts around 48 mph and dust reduced visibility to 2-3 miles at Salt Lake Airport and Ogden Airport on Friday night. The weather service also reported strong gusts in the Traverse Mountains.

Strong winds were expected to pick up over Lake Utah and the Utah Valley until 7:30 p.m., and Lake Utah boaters were urged to seek a safer harbor.
