Thursday's Pinpoint Forecast: Here comes the colder air! Today will be brisk and much cooler, with highs mainly in the 40s to near 50 for northern Utah, 30s in the mountains, and 60s and 70s with windy conditions across southern Utah. Snow levels are already down to 6500' in the north, with just a few snow showers throughout the day and some sprinkles across the northern part of the state. Friday morning, a lake effect snow band is possible around eastern Tooele County over to Salt Lake County. IF, and that's a big IF, this band develops, it will be cold enough for snow and 1-3" is possible down to the valley floor ONLY where this band develops. It will be another chilly day with highs in the 40s to near 50 up north, with scattered mountain snow showers. Southern UT will have 40s in the higher terrain, to 50s and 60s over the lower elevations. Total mountain accumulation will be around 1-3", but heavier over the spine of the Wasatch and out toward the Uintas, with some spot topping 6". Friday night will be the coldest night of fall so far, with many locations seeing a frost or freeze. This weekend will be mostly sunny, with slowly increasing temps back up to normal by Sunday. Get out and enjoy the fall colors, with many locations at or near peak.
~Have a great Thursday!
