SALT LAKE CITY — Heavy rain that hit southern Utah Wednesday moved into northern Utah Thursday and made for a soggy morning commute.

Some of the heaviest rain was reported in Davis County and the Ogden areas, according to KSL meteorologist Grant Weyman.

A flash flood warning is in effect for parts of southern Utah.

Totals from Wednesday evening show more than 3 inches of rain fell in Kolob Canyon. Pine Mountain Valley and New Harmony received more than 2 inches, and Zion National Park picked up 1.41 inches of rain.

The storm should bring several more inches of snow to northern Utah's mountains and rain throughout the day in lower elevations, Weyman said.

The Utah Department of Transportation reported a handful of crashes Thursday morning, including on I-80 and I-15 in the Salt Lake Valley.

Chains or four-wheel drive are required in Big and Little Cottonwood canyons.
