Wind picks up for round two of northern Utah advisories

CENTERVILLE, Utah — Part two of a wind event appears to be moving into northern Utah, with advisories still in effect for the region through 9 a.m. Wednesday morning. 

Forecasters expected the strongest wind to affect the northernmost points of the Wasatch Front, with easterly winds picking up after 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Davis County residents reported strong crosswinds along I-15 Tuesday morning, while the National Weather Service of Salt Lake City recorded wind gusts as strong as 63 miles per hour at Park Lane.

By late Tuesday afternoon, the National Weather Service advised residents to tie down any loose outdoor items, such as trampolines and patio furniture. 

The first part of the wind event wrapped up by around noon, but still took some drivers by surprise. 

In a series of tweets, NWS forecasters said Box Elder, Davis, Weber and northern Salt Lake counties could expect to bear the brunt of the wind event. They predicted wind gusts between 45 and 55 miles per hour for the Salt Lake Valley. 

Wind advisories remain in effect for much of northern Utah through Wednesday morning.
