SOUTHERN UTAH — The old saying “in like a lion out like a lamb” may hold true this March in Southern Utah as an early spring storm continues to move its way across the region.
An avalanche warning was posted for the southwest mountains of Utah Monday due to the recent 8-14 inches of snow that had fallen within the past 24 hours.

A road closure was reported on state Route 14, near milepost 17, in Iron County due to hazardous road conditions, including a slide. At 7 p.m. Monday, UDOT posted blizzard conditions on SR-14 and the route remained closed.
At midday, Utah Department of Public Safety reported that new snow in Southern Utah contributed to 12-20 slide-offs on roadways Monday, including on Interstate 15 in Iron County.
According to the National Weather Service, the avalanche and winter storm warnings for the mountains of southwest Utah are expected to remain in effect until Tuesday afternoon.
