High winds that left parts of northern Utah whiplashed with downed trees, scattered debris and power outages Friday were expected to weaken and eventually subside Saturday, while snow and rain falling in the south showed no signs of stopping.
With gusts reaching up to 40 mph in Weber, Davis and Salt Lake counties, the wind Saturday morning was not what it had been, according to the National Weather Service, where forecasters said the breeziness would taper off gradually throughout the day.
"It's still going to be plenty breezy," said forecaster Mike Conger. "But nothing nearly like what we've seen."
A high wind warning remained in effect through noon Saturday, due to strong cross-winds expected along the Interstate 15, Legacy Parkway and U.S. 89 corridors.
