A series of storms won’t drop much snow, but they will clear an inversion.
After the frigid temperatures of Monday morning in Utah, there will be a slight warming trend – and a brief period of fresh air along the Wasatch Front.
Utahns woke up Monday to teen temperatures, single digits and even lower than across most states. Temperatures were below zero in areas from Logan to Manti to Bryce Canyon, and that was in the 20s in St. George.
After temperatures dropped below average over New Year’s weekend, thermometers are expected to rise slightly above normal over the weekend in northern Utah. The forecast shows temperatures in the 30s in Salt Lake City on Monday, reaching the 20s in Logan and the 40s in St. George.
Along the Wasatch Front, an inversion is under construction, but is not expected to last as a series of storms will pass through Utah this week.
Utah Department of Environmental Quality is forecasting orange/bad for sensitive groups in Salt Lake, Davis, and Utah counties on Monday, improving to yellow/medium in those three counties on Tuesday. It will be yellow/moderate in Cache, Tooele and Weber/Box Elder counties on Monday, improving to green/fine in those three counties on Tuesday. It will be green statewide on Wednesday.
There is snow – or a combination of rain and snow – in the forecast for Salt Lake City daily Tuesday through Saturday, though not much snow accumulation is expected. Maybe 1-2 inches in some areas on Tuesday, with 3-7 inches possible in the mountains.
The city is likely to see a few more inches of snow Wednesday, and scattered rain and sleet Thursday, with little or no accumulation. And there is likely to be more rain and snow on Friday and Saturday.
High temperatures in the mid-30s are predicted Monday through Wednesday, rising to lows in the 40s on Thursday and Friday. The normal high for this time of year is 38.
No rain forecast in St. George until next weekend. Mostly sunny skies are forecast with temperatures in the upper 40s on Monday and Tuesday, rising to the mid-50s Wednesday-Sunday. Normal highs in St. George at this time of year is at a 50s low.
