SALT LAKE CITY — Saturday-morning snow created treacherous conditions and caused numerous minor accidents for Utah drivers to start the weekend.

The Utah Department of Transportation Twitter account reported crashes on I-15, I-215 and many other roads across the Wasatch Front and the state.

A winter storm warning remains in effect for Alta, Brighton, Mirror Lake Highway, and Scofield until 5 p.m. Saturday, as the National Weather Service anticipates another 6 to 12 inches of snow in the area. Smaller snowfall totals were predicted over the weekend for cities across the state, from 1 inch in Logan to 2 inches in Cedar City.

Light snow may continue throughout the day on the Wasatch Front, especially as temperatures fall from a predicted high of 41 degrees. Sunday's high temperature is forecast at 33 degrees with a 20% chance of snow.
