Expect to run into some slick spots this morning as you make your way to work or school.

Snow is falling in some areas this morning. More is expected this afternoon, but not as much as fell along parts of the Wasatch Front yesterday. The snow buried some areas, especially in Utah County. As much as 11 inches was reported on the benches of Cedar Hills and Pleasant Grove. In Davis County, Centerville saw 7 inches.

Salt Lake County received less snow. But it had plenty of ice, which caused all kinds of traffic accidents. The Utah Highway Patrol says the storm contributed to 180 crashes and 35 slide-offs in Salt Lake and Utah counties.

Authorities are reminding motorists that they need to make way for snowplows when they park. In most Utah cities, those who park on the street during and after a snowstorm could be ticketed.

The Standard Examiner reports Layton handed out 383 parking tickets last month. That was after putting 600 pink warning notices on car windshields. Each ticket carries a $100 fine.

Clinton doesn't give warnings. In December, it issued 165 parking tickets. Clearfield gave out 117 parking tickets, and its fine is $25.
