ST. GEORGE — The winter weather that hit Southern Utah this weekend isn’t finished just yet.

The National Weather Service issued several alerts Sunday afternoon for Washington, Iron, Garfield, Kane and Beaver counties. A Wind Chill Warning runs from 11 p.m. Sunday through 9 a.m. Monday, while the Winter Weather Advisory issued Saturday has been extended until 11 p.m. Sunday.

Wind gusts up to 40 mph are expected, producing wind chills of 0-10 degrees.

“Avoid outside activities if possible. When outside, make sure you wear appropriate clothing, a hat and gloves,” the NWS said.

An additional 2 inches of snow are expected at higher elevations in Zion National Park, as well as 6-12 additional inches in Brian Head and Alton.

The weather service reminds travelers to slow down and use caution while operating a vehicle.

A two-vehicle crash resulted in a semi tractor-trailer being jackknifed across the northbound lanes of Interstate 15 in Cedar City on Friday night. The incident prompted a full closure of northbound I-15 for approximately three hours, with traffic being diverted off the interstate at Exit 57 and back on at Exit 59.

The cold snap hitting St. George will continue as daytime highs for the week are in the mid-40s with lows in the low-to-mid 20s. Cedar City, meanwhile, will see an overnight low of 11 degrees with a Monday high of 23.
