Flights at Salt Lake City International Airport (KSLC) diverted, canceled as Dense Fog Advisory issued for parts Utah

SALT LAKE CITY — The National Weather Service has issued a Dense Fog Advisory for several northern Utah counties Sunday, and flights in and out of Salt Lake City have been diverted or canceled as a result.

As of around 8 p.m., 23 outbound flights and 21 inbound flights have been canceled for Sunday night and Monday morning. Delays are averaging in excess of 90 minutes, and another 23 flights into Salt Lake City have been diverted.

Airport officials said passengers should check with their airline regarding delays and cancellations.

The warnings include Box Elder, Salt Lake, Davis, Tooele and Weber counties—and the warnings are in effect until 8 a.m.  Monday.

According to the NWS, areas of fog are expected to become more widespread Sunday night, and in some areas the fog will lower visibility to a few hundred feet.

The fog is expected around Great Salt Lake and across northwestern and west-central Utah Sunday.

Those driving in the affected areas are urged to use caution. The NWS says drivers may experience fog along I-15 from the Idaho border south to Cove Fort and along I-80 from Salt Lake City to West Wendover.

The fog also put a hold on plans for a dive team to enter Great Salt Lake Sunday to confirm an object found in the water is a missing airplane out of Ogden.
