The impact on Interstate 15 starts near the Iron-Washington county border at about milepost 42 and northward, where several slide-offs and crashes have been reported as of 2:30 p.m. Monday. Farther north, snow is impacting travel in the area of Cove Fort in Millard County near the Interstate 70 junction.

The Utah Department of Transportation is reporting delays of five minutes or less on I-15 as of 3:30 p.m. Monday.

Unplowed snow conditions have also been reported on state Route 18 in northern Washington County. Snow is not expected to reach the St. George area, according to UDOT.
