(Salt Lake City-AP/KSL News) -- Overnight snowfall along the Wasatch Front has been relatively kind to Monday morning commuters.

The snowplows and salt trucks were out early. Several accidents and slide-offs were reported on wet, slick roads. But for the most part the commute was going well early Monday.

Many Salt Lake and Tooele valley residents shoveled between one to five inches of the wet stuff this morning. Alta and Brighton ski resorts reported a foot or more of new snow.

Another storm Sunday brought colder temperatures and five to eight inches of snow to the ski resorts. But it knocked out power to about 13-thousand homes and businesses in Salt Lake neighborhoods. Several hundred people in West Valley lost power Sunday afternoon, as well. Power was finally restored to all customers by Monday morning.

Weather may have played a part in a crash along I-15 in North Salt Lake Sunday afternoon.

A man was involved in a minor accident blamed in part on hydroplaning. When he got out of his car, another vehicle lost control on the wet freeway, and slid into him. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

Today, temperatures will hover in the low to mid-thirties.
