SALT LAKE CITY — A hard freeze warning was placed into effect by the National Weather Service from 9 p.m. Monday until 10 a.m. on Tuesday for parts of northern Utah after a day of gusting winds.

The National Weather Service explained in a tweet that the hard freeze warning comes after clearing conditions and winds that are causing temperatures to be cooler. Temperatures in Salt Lake City are expected to be around 30 degrees overnight.

Cooler temperatures can cause complications for the growing season, which has already begun in some parts of northern Utah, the weather service said.

Salt Lake City and other parts of Utah experienced wind gusts of at least 30 mph beginning at 11 a.m. on Monday. The weather service said that the Salt Lake City International Airport reported gusts of 50 mph but expected them to taper off later in the evening.
