Winter Storm Watch Warns of Hazardous Driving Conditions
By Kristin Forbis, Oct 11, 2021
Ready or not, hazardous winter driving conditions have arrived. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect, specifically over mountain passes. While Uintah and Duchesne Counties are expected to see less of the impact, Daggett County will get the brunt of it. Snow accumulation could reach over a foot in the mountains with 18 inches possible. The Winter Storm Watch is in effect Monday evening through Tuesday. This gives travelers a little time to prepare vehicles for this sudden thrust into winter travel. Remember, all vehicles need good tires when moisture is on the road. Other musts include filling your wiper fluid with antifreeze wiper fluid, checking wiper blades, packing an emergency kit, checking your battery, and of course, making sure you have a quality scraper on hand.
