SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Transportation officials say commuters need to give themselves more time as wintery weather hits northern and central Utah roadways.

The Utah Department of Transportation says snow, slush and patchy ice could cause problems for drivers on Monday morning and running through early Tuesday.

The agency is calling for chains or 4-wheel-drive vehicles in Big and Little Cottonwood canyons, and is requiring chains for trucks over 12,000 pounds on Interstate 80 through Parleys Canyon.

UDOT says a cold weather system is expected to move south and bring snow to southern Utah beginning Tuesday evening.
