If you plan to travel in northern Utah this morning, your commute may be met with potentially hazardous conditions.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for the Wasatch Front until 8 a.m. because of the risk of freezing rain, according to 2News Meteorologist Lindsay Storrs.

The snow and/or freezing rain is most likely along Interstate 80 west west of downtown Salt Lake City and in Cache Valley.

Commuters in those areas should be prepared for a slick Thursday commute.

Warmer temperatures in the southern half of the Salt Lake Valley and in Utah Valley will create rain and wet roads, according to Storrs.

Mountain roads and canyons will be covered in light snow.

By mid-morning, the threat of freezing rain will end, but a few rain and snow showers will linger through to midday.

Most of the showers will end by the afternoon.

Storrs says the storm is not strong enough to break the inversions, so the air quality issues and fog will continue for the next few days.

A weekend storm is the next chance Utah has to get some clean air.
