Snow expected for morning commute

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) – It may be a rough drive for commuters early Tuesday along the Wasatch Front. Forecasters predict snow could make a mess of the morning drive.
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) – It may be a rough drive for commuters early Tuesday along the Wasatch Front. Forecasters predict snow could make a mess of the morning drive.

If you're out driving Monday night, the streets are a little a soggy.

"They're not really bad," said Bryant Atkinson, driver.

"When it rains it's not bad," said Amy Atkinson, driver.

"It's no matter what kind of weather, I drive in everything," said Carlos Haro, tow truck driver.

But what may only seem like a slippery irritation Monday night could turn into a snowy morning commute.

"You don't like driving in the snow?” Reporter Brian Carlson asked one driver.

“Oh I hate driving in the snow," he said.

“Some people are just crazy on the road," said Gabi Lords, driver.

"It takes longer to get everywhere, you have to warm up your car and it takes longer to get to A to B. I just hate it," said Atkinson.

Meteorologists recommend you might as well plan on snow during you're morning drive. How much will depend on whether you live. They said Utah County will be one of the hardest hit areas.
Earlier Monday wind blowing in the snow storm knocked over a semi-truck trailer in Grantsville. When the white stuff hits the road, you can practically expect other wrecks won't far behind. Some drivers aren't looking forward to it.

"You don't have to worry about just yourself, you have to worry about the drivers that are going to hit you," said Atkinson.

If you hate driving in the snow, you can't do anything about Mother Nature, but the good news is UDOT is fully aware this storm could pack a punch Tuesday morning, and they've got the plows ready to go.
