Heavy fig descended on the Salt Lake City area in Utah, causing poor visibility and flight cancellations or diversions at Salt Lake International Airport on Saturday morning. However, once the fog lifted, normal operations resumed, but not before six SkyWest flights were diverted and eight flights cancelled, according to Barbara Gann, a spokesperson for the airport.
The bad weather also caused a nine-car pile-up on Route 189 where the driver of a pickup truck carrying a load snowmobiles missed a turn and hit the guardrail and was then hit by another truck. With lack of time and visibility, a number of other vehicles crashed into the ones already in the road. The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City is calling for a cold front to arrive on Sunday afternoon, which will dispel the fog and bring with it a series of smaller storms that could bring significant snow to some areas.
