...Drifting snow makes for hazardous travel...

Snowfall is tapering off this afternoon however roadways may
continue to be snow covered at times, due to gusty winds. As of
2pm, highway 93 north and south of Wells was especially
treacherous due to gusty winds blowing snow across the road.

Visibilities will locally drop to 1/4 mile or less in blowing snow.
Motorists should be prepared for sudden changes in visibilities,
along with variable road conditions due to drifting snow.
