SOUTHERN UTAH – Southern Utahns saw the whole gamut of winter weather Thursday evening as wind, lightning, rain, hail and snow blasted across the region.

Winter weather, including accumulating snow and layers of frozen ice, created difficult and dangerous driving conditions on roads and highways throughout Southern Utah.

Due to heavy amounts of moisture, a flood warning was issued for all of Washington County and the west central section of Kane County which was set to be effective until 11:45 p.m. Thursday.
